    Courtesy light staying on

    Any ideas as to why this has suddenly started happening? The trusty old workhorse is original in every way - i.e. no changes to wiring and all of a sudden, i'm lit up every where I go.

    Have changed all door pin switches, more in desperation than anything and they are relatively cheep from my local Vx stealer.

    Puzzled

    Was the first thing I checked. It makes no difference in or out.
    I have been reading similar posts and have found that the grey wire to the lamp is not switching from 0 to 12v after closing the door.

    Try removing the headlight switch incase there's a internal fault. Going to be a easy place to start
