Default Rear inner dome light not working

Hi guys,

All other inner dome lights are working fine except the rear one on the roof. I have tried all the settings i.e. Door and constant but no go. Have changed the globe too 8W , still no go, even though the original globe was ok.

Just wondering if there is a separate fuse for this? or any one else has encountered this problem?

Thanks,

Asad.

I have just had the same problem. Replaced the globe, and seems to be power there after testing with multimeter. Seems odd. Is this light linked with another light that is keeping this light off?
Any ideas is appreciated.

If there is power on one side of the lamp, check for a ground on the other side. In the "on" position, the lamp should be grounded through the light assembly. In the "door" position, the lamp should be grounded through the plunger switch that senses when the door open. According to the NP wiring diagram, the one fuse does all the interior dome lights and map lights, and the door warning lamps on the instrument panel. I'd imagine the NS would be similar.

Guys, very embarrassed. I bought the LED festoon lights to replace the broken globe, and when i put it in, it did not work (as per my post above). Being new tot he LED game, didnt realise they were + - sensitive (unlike the old fashion globes). Decided to try the LED again, but the other way around , and sure enough, it nearly blinded me. Throws out a heap more light. Looks like i need to buy another 4 more to replace all the other ones .

Hey guys,
I went camping this weekend and everytime i opened the rear boot door, the dome light turned on. Then someone else opened it and the dome light would not turn on with the door but it would turn on with the switch. The dome light comes on when the other doors are open but it won't turn on if just the rear door opens. This is annoying as it was alot of darkness and opening and closing of the door to access my drawers for cookware etc. Any idea what this could be?

EDIT: I just had to take out one screw for the rear door push-pin style thing, disconnect it and blew it out. There was a ton of sand in it. All good now. 30 second fix

The lights will time out after a while if ignition switched on to save the battery. You have to turn ignition off and on from memory.

If its not that it could be the rear door switch fault.
