Car listed above is a convertible. Power mirrors always worked without issue.

The rear interior lights worked erratically. By the rear sear door panels. They are small left and right.
They would come on and off at random. I believe those lights are timed entry convenience lights. Don't know if there hooked into the alarm as well and the fob.

The map lights set into the rearview mirror are not working as well.

No dome light on a convertible.


So the power side-view mirrors and interior lights quit at the same time.

I don't have power coming to them.
I changed the corresponding fuses.
Nothing changed.

I do not believe the alarm is functioning either.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

You mentioned that the fuse was checked. Did you confirm there is power to and from the fuse?

Next, based on your description, it almost sounds like it could be a ground related issue. Take a look at the pic which shows the ground location. Check it to make sure it is in good condition, not corroded, and not loose.

Also, here is a link you may find helpful when checking the fuse for power:

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
