    You would need to find a wiring diagram and then using a test light check for voltage/earth at the relevent wires/plugs.

    No fuses in the ZKE module, if it's damaged then unless you are a electrical whizz it's knackered.

    If your interior light still works when you open the door as you say in your first post, and you 'blew' some fuses while doing some electrical jobs, then you will have blown fuse no. 43.
    If the interior light comes on with the door then it is nothing to do with the ZKE module.
    The reading lights are just a simple circuit so unless the switch is knackered then it's probably the fuse.

    Does the interior light (not reading lights) work when you set it to manual
    However, it may all depend on what jobs you were doing when you blew some fuses. What were you doing?

    The windows could be ZKE related but you should check fuses no. 14 and 19 first.
