An IDIOT and his LIGHTS

Hi everyone,

I have read and re-read the many great posts here about interior lights but I'm just not gettin' it (silly me). So, any ideas are very, very welcome.

The interior lights work but only when I switch them to 'always on'. Could this be a case for switching the door pins?

Do you have them tilted to the 3rd position? There is always on, always off and on only when a door is open.
Unlikely you have 3 bad door switches or 6 bad light assemblies. Check the easy stuff first before getting into the wiring.

Thanks, George. I can recall discovering that the lights (except those in the doors) tilted! One of the tilters has an end bit (rocker) broken off. Might this be the source of the issue?
