[DML] Re: Door Lights

My passenger door lights were out when I bought my car.  Turns out 
that the connectors behind the door light switch pin, were simply 
dirty.  I cleaned the connections and the lights worked fine.  You 
may want to check this before changing bulbs.

As far as Deloreans having bulbs out in photos, I think when cars 
are shown, or when doing work for extended periods with the doors 
open, the lights are arranged to be off with a wiring/switch 
arrangement (that can be bought at Special-T Auto I believe) to save 
drain on the battery.  During cruise nights, I'll simply unplug the 
connectors behind the door light pin switch to deactivate the lights
