Interior Lights

Hi All
Not been on here for a while but I have now bought another car which requires some TLC


My question is
The PO has taken the15amp fuse out that works the interior light, time clock and radio
When I replace the fuse the radio and clock work and so do the interior light but the lights won't turn off
Where should I start to look


Many thanks
ME

Are they switched on at the rear view mirror?

The interior lights are controlled by the Lucas 5AS alarm ECU using a signal from the micro switch in the door lock. The lights on the mirror can additionally be switched on by the switches on the mirror when the doors are shut.

My guess is that one of the micro switches has failed.

if all the lights are on including the foot-wells then its likely the relay.

Yes they are all on

Is it a difficult job to replace the relay?

Cheers

Not done it myself, but my brother changed all of his. There are a number of "how to's" out there, I even saw one on ebay a while back. Best bet is to google how to change pektron relays...in fact just done that and top of the list is the ebay guide
