    Courtesy light in doors

    Hi Guys, never really noticed but as I just saw a friend off in his TDi I just realised that there are courtesy lights at the end of the door and mine have never worked. Will check bulbs nd fuses in morning but any ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    We fitted some speakers into the rear doors of a 'poverty-spec' 2007 Jetta 'S' the other week and this vehicle only had blank reflectors and no actual bulbs or holders.

    For some reason Audi decided to not install them in the A3 S-Line.
    They are there on all other variants with he exception of the base spec cars.
    I have no idea why they didn't put them on the S-Line which is, after all, one of the higher specifications. Very strange?

    Might be different on latest models but I definitely do not have them on my 2007my A3 2.0TDi Sportback S-Line.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.

    I thought the door lights came as part of the interior light pack, along with the ambient red roof leds???

    Our 01 SE without light pack has them; the 53 Sport doesn't. My old base model Quattro didn't either.

    I've got all these lights in mine except the vanity mirror lights! I dont think Audi have any particular standard with regard to equipment, I think they just make it up as they go along - like a lucky dip!!!

    I have them in mine although the rear drivers door won't work. I have checked the bulb, but still no luck. Does anyone know how to check the switch for the door and where it is? Its nearly caught me out a few times by relocking the door after 30 secs because it doesn't know its been opened...

    By the way mines a 130 sport without the lighting pack...

    light switch

    Technics

    the switch is integral to the lock mechanism and is a right pain and expense to change. Mine sticks occasionally there is another thread here somewhere on how to take the locka assembly apart to fix or by and replace the lock mecahanism. but thats expensive.

    My '02 sport has them in all doors & they all work perfectly, but I dont have any red LED's in the roof, footwell lights or vanity mirror lights. It does seem to be total pot luck as to what your car gets fitted with!!
