Hi,

I had/still have this problem. I installed a sunglasses holder some time back and everything was fine for a time, then the 3 interior lights and the footwell ones had a life of their own, that life was normally out! When I had time I did a few checks, the diagnostic of the GEM (just in case) and eventually just had a fiddle with the connections in the light assembly. That gave me the main interior and the left interior one, right one is still up the duff ..... I must have another fiddle with it! I am presuming that the right one also feeds the rear boot light .... that's not working either. The only wiring diagram I have is the Haynes one and it is a little schematic really but with that and my symptoms that's what I think. The light fitting and all the little bits of copper inside does seem flimsy ..... if I was a betting man I know where my money is placed!

Remove the clear plastic lens and pull out the light switch.
Bend the 2 copper contacts inwards towards each other and apply some Vaseline to the tips.
Refit the switch and reassemble the light unit.
Also check that the bulb holder is rotated into the fully home position and check that the thin metal tags that once held the metal tracks together during manufacture have been fully broken and are no longer causing the tracks to short circuit.

This should cure most problems.
