    Interior lights not working when doors are opened

    When I open the doors on my 96 Eldorado the lights don't come on, they do work if you twist the knob and turn them on manually. Maybe 4 or 5 times in the past year they have come on when the door is opened which makes me think there is some type of electrical problem. All of the interior lights work when turned on manually.

    There are separate power/ground leads to each door.
    So if both doors don't turn them on and the dimmer does, it leads me to believe it's a BCM issue.

    Where is the BCM located and how hard is it to change it?

    They won't come on during the daytime. Did you cover the twilight sensor?

    The twilight sentinel doesn't work either, also the driver power seat went out one day when I pressed the memory button and it doesn't work. When I try to change the fuse for the driver seat in the trunk, the fuse blows out as soon as I put it in. This car has some electrical issues.

    At this point, I'm gonna suggest having it checked out by qualified personnel.
