Interior lighting help

    Posted about this a little while back but it didin't really get to the bottom of the problem.

    The following lights don't work in my interior:
    Front courtesy light (one that comes on when opening door)
    Rear interior light
    Glovebox light.

    ALL other lighting works fine.

    So far I have done the following:
    1) Checked all fuses/bulbs and they are fine.
    2) Checked for 12v at relevant fuse in interior fusebox, 12v present.
    3) Checked for 12v at front courtesy light wire, no 12v present.

    Below is the wiring diagram for my interior, and from what I can make out (thanks to the help of replies in my last thread) the problem looks to be caused by feed T10 from my onboard supply unit (J519), as this seems to serve the front, rear and glovebox lights. Agree??? Disagree??

    Any ideas/suggestions where I go from here??
    Do I check to make sure that whatever is at J519 is plugged in properly?? Anybody know where J519 is and if it's easy to get at??

    There is a phone carkit fitted to my car, that was there when I bought it. The wire from it runs into the dash next to stero, and the mic is coming out from the front interior light.
    I guess damage could've occured to wires when they fitted that.

    Help appreciated :scared2:

    do the interior lights come on with the passenger door.

    could be a coding issue is the Main can module coded

    Hi... nope, interior lights don't come on with either door.
    The other interior lighting (boot light and instrument illumination) which don't appear to be on the same circuit work fine. It's just the glovebox, front/rear lights.

    I've never done any coding. Not sure about the guy before me, but I doubt it as it was a company car and is totally standard.
