Interior light not working. Fuses and lamps all good.
« on: November 17, 2018, 05:12:08 pm »
Ok, rather a weird one. Opening any door does not trigger the interior lamps. It is switched to the door activated position
 The lights work manually, and the control panel display I dictates if any door is open? So they have power, the lamps work and it knows a door is open  but won't turn them on??? Any ideas?? Mk3 3 2011 galaxy tdci.

Or the switch on the light isn't working?

So it is with all doors that it fails to come on?

Either the lamp itself is at fault,clearly the bulb is good as it manually comes on but the switch for door position operation could be at fault. Failing that I would suspect the body control module. You could try the good old battery off for half hour trick see if that resets something.
