    Goofy Map Lights 2002 Ws6

    Map lights don't come on when either button is pressed under the rearview mirror. They do come on when the door is opened (they are programmed to fade, which works ok). They also come on when the interior light switch is rotated to the "on" position.... they can be clicked "off" at this point also. I checked voltages at the wiring connector (at the mirror) and it appears to be correct: 1 constant ground; 1 constant hot; and the third changes state. Seems like this is a goofy way for these things to work. One would think that they should click "ON" then click "OFF" by the push of the button. Any thoughts?!?

    Make sure you don't have a blown fuse.

    I'll triple-check the fuses. I know it's not me. Took the car out last night w/ the other half, driving down the road at night, she presses her map light under the rearview mirror....sure enough the map light does NOT come on. I had to rotate the dash fader to the ON position, of course at that point all interior lights come on!

    Checked fuses and all tested good. If anyone else has experienced this and know the cause and fix, please do let me know.

    Checked manual

    Yeah, I checked the manual, nothing mentioned about this kind of operation.
    Funny thing I came across a post of someone else having the same issue back in May 2008, but no respose on his.
