Hi,
I have a 91 Twinspark 164 which has a minor problem but one that is winding me up none the less, the door ajar indicator does not light up when door is opened and nor do the courtesy lamps. The indicator lights up when ignition is first turned on or when test button is used but not when any doors are opened, its a similar thing with courtesy lights they come on individually using switches.

Hope some one has got some ideas as this is really starting to bug me!

Regards
Lee

Does the 164 have door switches??
Like plastic plunger things in the door shuts??
They can corrode up / drop off / break.

Lee,

I had two corroded contacts on a car which caused this. Replacing them also fixed the alarm!
They are small buttons in the door-frame just between the hinges. They are not usually in the lock mechanism. Have a poke around, they cost me 7 euro to replace.
