interior lights was created by john a. volak
i received a wiring diagram on the wiring of the interior lights, i think it starts at the fuses behind the fuse box. while at the body shop the lights quit working. they work if you switch them to work all the time but when you switch them to come on when door is opened they don't work. both doors do the same thing. i know the ground for the on-off feature is brown with green line. the on all the time ground is all brown. i've noticed that the red door lights do not work either. does the hatch light work along with the rest of the interior lights? any help will be appreciated. where do i start. thanks john

Do the lights work as they should when the hatch is opened?

What did the Body Shop work on? They may have reversed a wire.

Pull the door pins. 11mm socket and pull them out slowly. There should only be one wire connected to each, and chances are they are not connected. That's where the fun begins. You have to find a way to fish out the wire, then reconnect it.

my fuse/relay diagram says there are two 4oo ma fuses behind fuse/relay panel for central door lock system. Does anyone know where they are or what they look like? i removed fuse/relay panel and could not find them. i thought they were attached to back of panel, wrong!!! i also ordered relay xx1 for light delay relay, i know where that is. any help would be extremely helpful. looked in nichols web site but it didn,t say where fuses where. thanks for help, john

Not sure what year/transmission setup you have, but when my intreior delay relay (XXI) was bad, I did not have any reverse lights and the automatic transmission indicator lights in the gauge pod were so dim that you couldn't see them. Don't know if that is helpful or not, but I thought that I would throw it out there. ;)

This is why I asked whether the interior lights worked as they should if the hatch was opened. If so, then you can bet on a bad relay.

Take the relay out and tap it on the flood or bench.
Put it back in and see if it works any different. If it does its the relay.
Also you can try one from another spot that looks the same, just to see if it is the relay or a different problem.
