PostSubject: interior lights   Thu Jan 24, 2013 5:52 pm

In the past I have mentioned that I have many little problems with my 95 SC. I have a question concerning an issue I wish I could resolve. When I open the door the interior lights do not come on. They do not operate with either door. When I use the light switch they operate just fine. I was thinking that the door switch needed to be replaced but when I shut the car off the radio remains on until I open the door. So I assume the switch works if it operates on the same switch. How do I fix this problem?

While I am sure there is a diagnostic in the FSM, the first thing I would do is pull back the flexible boots between the doors and the body, on both sides. Look for ANY broken wires. This is a common problem, causing all sorts of electrical problems. My advice to you is to get an FSM if you intend to keep your Riviera.
