    Strange stuff.

    First the drivers side vanity light goes, then a week or so later, the passenger side goes too.

    So, I presumed the bulb had blown and took the opportunity to order some interior xenons from www.ttstuff.com

    Went to fit them today and the original bulbs are fine, not blown, and it appears there's no power going to the fitting because the new bulb wont work either

    I cant get my head round this. Surely, if it was a fuse then the reading/map lights in the middle wouldnt work either? I've checked the fuses and these seem fine aswell.

    Anyone got any ideas please?

    A long shot here, but have the contacts where the bulbs go, corroded? Also, the whole fitment may just be faulty now and need replacing. Trace the wires down as far as you can, and see where the voltage cuts out. It should identify where your problem is then.

    Very very strange one mate

    you found your way over from TT forum..this is a nice place to hang out..!

    Could be you use them to much to look at yourself and damaged the switch contact in the visor, easy to check

    1. Unscrew visor the part that pivots and check for a feed there, if 12v then visor it is
    2. if no voltage then double check the fuses, they maybe on a different circuit to Map lights, check manual
