Interior light

Recently got around to replacing the lights in the hatch area and between the sunvisor - but they only come on when either the hatch or the passenger door is opened. Are they supposed to come on for the driver door? If so, any input on where to start checking connections?

Mine was doing the same thing so i ordered the door switches to replace them. As i was taking the old one off, when i started to pull the wire off the old switch the lights come on. Maybe it was just making a bad contact or something. If that's not it, you might have to replace the switch (not very expensive).

Yup. Pulled it out and got it to light up by ground it to the body. Looks badly corroded. New one on pelican is $7.75. Thanks!
