    Door handle lights?

    Hi, I don't want to change the colour of my door handle lights, but I do have a question about them.
    For some reason, the orange light above my driver door handle does not work. The passenger one is fine.

    Does anyone know if they are LEDs or bulbs, if there is a fuse that could have gone or if a wire could have come loose somewhere. All of my driver door window control lights work ok.

    This is the area in question for anyone confused (top left) you can see the orange glow of this working door, mine does not do that:

    It will either bethe bulb in the light or the connector off, as the other controls light up there must be power through to the door.

    started fitting mine last night to discover that the wiring was not there, have wired them from the window switch control using the feed for the light that is there, takes some time and gives some burnt fingers

    am i right in thinking that by wiring to the switch light the door handle light will be on whenever you have lights on?
