    Hiya

    Ive just recently got my 325i E36 (M Plate) and im having a few issues, and would be greatful if anyone could shed any light (No Pun)

    The interior lighting isnt working, the map lights work fine but the centre one that will come on when you open the door just doesnt want to play ball.

    Ive changed the bulb, and going to try and tackle the problem tommrow, but does anyone have any surgestions what the problem might be??

    Cheers

    We've a thread on this on page 2, a few folks suggested the boot cables may have become damaged over time, it's the first place you should look, another simple test, open the door, sit in the car, keys out, and push the little button on latch of the door, you should hear a faint clicking sound.

    I tracted my issue down the to switch on the boot, seems either the switch is fault, or the wiring was damaged, howeer when i disconnected the switch all worked ok, my interior lights work when i open and close the door now.

    Just a few idea's to get you started, ohh and always check the basics, fuses bulbs etc
