I don't know if this is your problem, but your symptoms sound suspiciously 
like those our '89 100Q had.  Interior lights would all work manually, but not 
automatically.  The other symptom was that the car alarm would not activate. 
Turns out that the right rear door switch (the one that senses when the door 
is shut) was bad.  So, essentially the car never saw all the doors as closed 
(and re-opened), so didn't do its thing with regard to automatically queuing 
the lights (and timer) or setting the alarm.  Replacing this switch 
(*relatively* inexpensive) fixed both problems.
