    Question97 STS - suddenly the lights inside the car do not turn on when I open the doors... ?

    I have a 1997 STS. Yesterday when I went to get in the car, the lights did not turn on when I unlocked the doors. Usually, I put the key in the door, turn it, wait a second, and the door locks unlock and the lights come on inside the car. But since yesterday, the lights don't come on when I unlock the doors. They don't come on when I open the doors either. Even if I turn the light knob thing all the way to the right, which would turn the interior lights on before, they won't turn on. I'm at a total loss. Any idea why this is happening?

    can anyone tell me where this fuse would be located in the car, so I can check it? Also can I get a replacement fuse at an auto parts store or needs to be ordered through a dealer...

    How can I figure out which one is responsible for the interior lighting? Sorry I really don't know much about this..

    I haven't done this for awhile but there are a lot of courtesy options which you can turn on and off. If I remember you push and hold the INFO and the YES buttons and it shows the options. You push YES or NO to turn them on or off. I think your light situation is one of them. Maybe someone accidentally changed it or the gremlins are at it again. I have a problem with my passenger side mirror turning downward when the car goes into reverse. I don't like it so I keep turning it off but after awhile for some reason it comes back on. Just a thought....
