Interior map lights not working on door open...
This past weekend to kill a little time in the garage after getting my airbag light issue sorted I began to install a pair of Mazda logo courtesy lights in the front doors of my 04 wagon.
Popped the cover off the driver’s door and pulled the lamp, plugged the logo light in its place and it lit up, but only for a couple of seconds before it flickered a few times then went out. I closed the door and when I opened it again I noticed that in addition to the courtesy light not coming on, my interior map lights didn’t come on either.
I closed the door & hit the lock on the remote; all the doors locked. I hit open once, driver’s door unlocked, hit it a second time, all doors unlocked...but none of my map lights came on; front or back seats.
I opened up the liftgate & the cargo area map light works fine. Sat in the car and manually hit each of the four individual map light buttons in the front and back seats and all four of them came on - not a fuse issue. Both front and back seat switches are set to ‘Door’, but none of those lights come on automatically when a door is open.
I removed the logo courtesy fixture and replaced the original lamp in the door; still no love. I put a meter on the courtesy light socket; zero volts.
