    No interior lights......

    Went to my car last night and on pressing the keyfob to unlock the car found that the indicators did not flash when unlocking it, then discovered that I had no interior lights or footwell lights or red marker lights on doors.
    On further investigation I found the rear luggage compartment light was dead too and that none of these lights could be made to turn on manually.
    Everything else works OK ie windows, sunroof, central locking and horn still beeps on locking the car.
    Checked the fuses (10A mini fuse at position 14) and all appears fine.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Arent the interior lights run off a timed relay ?? Have you checked for power at the fuse youve checked without ignition on and with door open ??

    Thanks, think the interior lights do run off a timer.
    Haven't yet checked anything out other than the fuse as it was 8pm last night that the fault manifested itself and the fuse check was quick and easy to do.
    I have come across references doing a net search to a relay 382 which is apparently a door entry control relay which I thought might be a possible suspect.
    However I've just been out to the car and have discovered the illuminated sun visors dont work either and when locked/alarmed only the red flashing LED on the passenger door is working....

    the timer is part of the CL unit, but i believe the timer controls a relay like you say. You certainly hear it click off after about ten minutes of having the doors open, and the interior lighting goes out.

    All sorted, on starting from scratch with a test-lamp found there was power at the 10A mini-fuse No 14, so pulled it again and on close examination in daylight could see that it had in fact blown.
    Schoolboy error in not diagnosing it earlier but at least the fix was cheap!
