    97 STS NO: interior lights, glove box light, trunk light, mirror lights

    Hello!

    My 97 STS has no interior lights, no glove box light, no mirrow lights, no truck lights.
    1. mirrow fuses checked out OK
    2. wires to fuse box looks good.

    Where do I go from here.

    My daughter just got her license & needs this car!

    Thanks!
    Andy USMC

    How about the individual fuses? Have you checked them?

    Does the under hood light work (it only works with headlamps on)?

    Do the automatic headlights work? If the photocell is faulty, and the system thinks it's light out all the time, the interior lights won't come on.

    Thanks for helping!
    1. The hood light functions correctly when the headlight switch is pulled on.
    2 The photocell is functioning correctly - the light go on automatically but there are no interior lights.
    3 I check all the individual fuses & could not locate a single blown fuse.
    Where do we go from here?
    Thanks Again!

    Andy, when you say "interior" lights do you mean all including the DIC or just the courtesy lamps in the doors, overheads and under dash?

    Hello Ranger

    The instrument cluster lights up & functions correctly when it is dark - photocell working correctly.
    The only interior lights I have working correctly are located near the window switches on each door.
    No courtsey lamps, no overhead, no under dash lights, no mirror lights, no trunk light

    Thanks!
    Andy

    You might need a wiring schematic for this one. Perhaps a bad ground?
