I'm not sure if I changed a setting by accident or a switch just isn't working anymore. If it's already been answered, I apologize.

For as long as I've owned my Riv, the courtesy lights (interior) would come on whenever I turn the car off-automatically. Now they don't do it anymore. Only when I open the door. It's not a huge thing but I was just curious if this happened to anyone before and they have a solution.

Thanks fellas.

Mine have a crazy delay in them sometimes, but I've never had them not come on.....until I unplugged my window switch recently. Without my driver side window switch, my interior lights don't come on anymore when I shut the car off, nor can I turn them on with the HL switch scratch

I've been looking at the schematic......all the interior lamps are wired in to the BCM and the RFA. 5 fuses power the whole mess, and the entire circuit only has 3 wires respectively. All of your lights come on when you open the door because the switch is working, and that means that the power/grounds are all good. The BCM grounds all the interior lights when you shut the car off via a WHITE wire (Pin F on the BCM, ckt 156).

For shiggles, check the WSW fuse (25A) in the IP fuse panel.....

if you have time to take off the dash faceplate, do that and disconnect the headlight switch. Pull the switch and test the courtesy lamp terminals - first look to see if they are fatigued loose (probably not) and then check electrical switch, that it closes when you undim the dash lights and clock to courtesy lights on.

I am suspecting a bad HL switch might cause this, unless there is a problem in the drivers-side (window/lock) switch cluster.

Thanks for the info.

I also played with the sliding switch under the headlight knob and noticed the headlights didn't stay on after turning car off. Is the Riv that cool that you can control that with a simple switch on the dash? happy

yes that slider controls headlight-off delay, although the markings confuse some... when you are in park and idling you can push that switch agains the left stop to turn the lights off. They will come back on when you put the car in gear.
