Been there, 875kCSTQ, the first thing I eliminated from the system was the
switch just in front of the Sunroof. Should be a three position switch,
lights on all the time, off, lights on only with door open. I had to
dismantle my switch and clean contacts a couple of years ago. That corrected
my problem for a few years,the next problem was one of the 4 door switches
was falling apart inside the door column and was shorted closed. Indicating
for the lighting system that there was still a door open.
Bentley's were a great help.
