    Hi all,

    Recently bought a 2000 BMW 316i SE Compact and I'm really happy with it. I'm just experiencing one minor problem with the interior light. It functions fine when placed in the on position, but when placed centrally i.e. to automatically turn on when the door is opened or when activated by the key is doesn't work. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? I have tried locating the sensors on the door as I figured one of these may be faulty but have had no joy!

    Thanks

    Dan

    I would definately say its your door switch-Is it the same for both doors and when you open the boot-If so then check the fuses and the relays
