[DMCForum] Re: Interior lights (grrr....)



Thanks for the info, Andrew, and others who replied. The stock lights
are pretty dim as-is. Of course this is coming from my Fiero which had
four bright bulbs up front in a smaller cockpit. ;)

On the front interior light, there are three wires. A ground, a +12V,
and a +12V that is only on with the doors. Can anyone tell me where
the two +12V lines run to from there?

Also, where is the brain for the delay circuit? Mine doesn't work, I'd
like to troubleshoot it.

Thank you!
