Neither puddle light on the driver and passenger door works and the boot light doesn't work either.

Before I go checking bulbs and fuses, does anyone know if the fact that the factory fit alarm no longer works/was disabled would affect the operation of these lights?

Cheers

Functional description
The supply for all the courtesy lights arrives directly from the battery via the line for maxifuse CENTR of B5 and fuse F17 of junction unit B1 .

The interior lights G10 (front) and G25 and G26 (rear) are switched on - depending on the positions of their internal switch - by an earth signal which is direct (permanently on) or timed.

However, the lights on the doors (front left G51 , front right G52 , rear left G55 and rear right G56 ) only ever come on for a timed period.

The timed period is managed by the special courtesy lights relay J42 , supplied directly by the battery via the line for maxifuse CENTR of B5 and protected by fuse F17 of junction unit B1 .

The timed period is operated by the instrument panel E50 , which sends the signal (from pin 11 of connector B to pin 85 of timer J42 ) as soon as at leas one of the doors is opened via switches N50A , N51B , N55 and N56 , connected to pins 14, 15, 16 and 17 of connector B of E50 , respectively.

The timing is interrupted when the ignition 'on' signal is received, which reaches the instrument E50 from the ignition-operated line (INT/A) of the panel - pin 15 of connector A of E50 - through fuse F1 of junction unit B1 .

Timing starts from the beginning again if the doors are unlocked via the safety knob: these signals reach the instrument E50 - to pin 12 of connector B - through the switches on the knobs, located in N50A and N51A .

The timed period is also activated when the door locks are released using the key or the remote control.

This signal comes from switches N50A and N51A and reaches pin 87A of J42 (the same signal reaches the central locking control unit - See E3040 CENTRAL LOCKING ).

Hi Paul - is there any chance you can let me know where I can find a reference guide, i.e. so that I can tell where B5, F17, B1 etc are to be found?
