2004 GT V6 passenger door light and some light issue
I recently bought a 2004 GT V6 cheaply with a view to tidying it up and keeping it long term. I already have a 159 diesel Ti so fuel economy wasn't a big issue on the second Alfa. As expected on a very cheap car with 97k, full history and five owners, it needed lots of tidying!
The electrics are all good apart from a few interior lights and some door window misbehaviour. I am interested if anyone knows why my passenger door will not illuminate the puddle light or central courtesy light when opened? I have checked bulbs and all are fine. I have read a number of posts about window issues and dome lights not working at all but that is not the same as this. The driver's door has a working puddle light and also operates the central light fine. I haven't removed the door card fully on the near side yet or checked the connections form door to body. I was wondering if the fault was simply in the locking mechanism or some sort of control unit in the door? The windows are a bit temperamental sometimes but I can live with that for now.
