Re: Interior lights on the blink
follow on from the interior lights staying on problem discussion ...
... I looked into the Bentley for the newer 5k over the weekend. It shows
that there is a *single* controller for the lamps, and the wiring is fairly
simple. All of the door switches are wired in parallel to a single input on
the controller, and there is an input that is energized whenever the igni-
tion switch is in the ON or START position and another input that comes from
the central locking system.
>From what I see in the wiring, I'd put my money a bad lamp controller unit.
Although it seems like it is a simple relay, there is a circuit board inside
and the circuitry has probably gone south ... If I had the problem, I'd prob-
ably try to take the thing apart and fix it before being forced to go out and
buy another one ...
To rule out a flaky switch you might want to leave several doors open ...
the controller should shut the lights off eventually. It would probably
be worthwhile taking a voltmeter to the pins to make sure that the LOCK
and IGN ON signals are making it to the controller as well.
Hpoer this helps!
