First thank you for taking your time to read this, I have read and read and found similar problems but nothing quite the right answer. Forgive me if this is redundant.

out of the blue, the power locks and the car interior lights stopped working unless the key is in the start position. I checked all the fuses and all are fine but I thought that they must be if the locks and lights do work. Can someone please help to find what the problem could be? Thank you,

Danny

Thank you. The relays I can see in the fuse box are labeled, horn, wipers, cig/lighter, fan, ac but nothing to indicate the locks. Can relays be tested? And if so any ideas how I can do this with a multimeter?

Also you said something "u lost the live feed battery positive". Are you saying that there is a live feed that supplies the power locks? Do you know where that might be so I can look for it or try and trace this.

Thank you
