... you just jogged my memory Jeremy ... don't the switches on the overhead 
lights allow you to turn them off manually?  On the '88 5k the light in the 
headliner between the front seats can be set to always on, always off or  
on by control of the door switch circuit; the map lights above the doors in 
the back seat operate the same way.  I remember that when I bought the car 
neither of the footwell lights in the front were working.  I checked it out 
and found that they had been disconnected.  I wondered what could happen to 
cause them both to pop out of the sockets ... I'll bet that the car had the 
same problem at some point in time.  Kinda reminds me about the story of 
what happened that caused the cow to be so mysteriously mutilated, but I'll 
spare you all ...
