[DML] Re: Door light quandry...

I've got a similar problem. Only on my car, it's just the passenger
door lights switch that was sparking and causing a problem. Lawrence
Lormand of Dearborn, MI helped me test the door wires and we picked up
a charge all through the door wiring. So it's probably up in the roof
harness or something. (grumble, complain, swear, colorful words.) The
odd thing was, my fuse didn't blow either. And every other one of my
D's lights work just fine, including the driver gullwing lights. (With
the exception of the reverse lights, but that's a different topic; I
know why too- M/T switch replacement time.) The oddest thing was, the
passenger side switch would arc and cause sparking on anything, the
door steel, the hood, even the wiper blade arms. So something's
grounding out somewhere. I dunno, I have common sense, but I'm no
electrician, I'll probably have to check out the main wiring harness.
I only had my rear harness reinsulated and repaired/soldered.
