RE: [DML] Re: interior lamps won't turn off



Remove the white control module from the relay area, and make sure the
wires are hooked up properly and you should be fine.

I have this same issue - does anyone know of a way to make the 'door
open' light position work with LEDs? I don't care about the delay
function, but at least getting the lights to turn on when the doors are
open and turn off when they close...

Thanks,
