Does it not get a little annoying flashing all the time? Or does it just flash every other time it's switched on like some do? :)

Check the door switches one by one & check you get the door open light/warning on both doors bonnet & boot

The interior light operates using a switched earth as far as I know. So it should have 12v+ constant then the switched earth in the door switches

The horn occasionally shares the same fuse as the interior light. Check that

Dads a mechanic and he's got some live testy thing. (I'm good with this, not!) he tested the wires that come into the light

Fair enough

Its a multimeter

Have you checked the horn fuse?

Have you tried it with both doors and the boot?

Yup no power at all just the interior light tho because the boot light still comes on

It's unlikely that both door open switches failed at the same time...

It's also unlikely, although possible.. that all the flashing of the light has either damaged or put the GEM (General electrical module) into a sulk

The GEM is like a little ECU that controls all the fades of the interior lights, coming home lights, AC, heated screens etc

It's not cheap if it's dead.. although I doubt it is as I'd have thought you'd have warning messages pop up about random things?

Yh but there's no power coming to the wire with the relay I don't think
