Default Illuminated Entry Lights on 1993 Bonneville SE do not work.

I have a 1993 Bonneville SE and none of the illuminated entry lights (courtesy and keyhole) turn on when I pull up on the handle when the doors are locked. The courtesy lights do come on when the doors are open, but otherwise they don't. However, the Illuminated entry lights DID work when I bought the car less than a year ago, but stopped working. But then today, when I repeatedly pulled on the locked door handle, the lights worked. I tried again: no luck. Then I tried again, and it worked. Could this mean that there is a loose connection? I haven't lost all hope after today'* findings. Please help!!

There is a switch on the door handle that acts as a Ground circuit... When the Rac Module sees this it will them turn on the relay for the lighting...

Could also be a bad relay or Bad Rac module...

You would have to trouble shoot..

Also do you have Keyless entry?

I do not have Keyless entry.
How do I troubleshoot this problem?

Have you tried the same thing with the passenger front door?

Also do you have the AU0 code on the spare tire cover?

No, but these are the numbers that ARE on the cover:
AAA AG1 AJ3 AM6 AP9 AT6 A79 A90 B20 CD2 C49 C61 C78 C97 DA0 DG7 E28 FE1 FW2 IQE JM4 KP2 K34 K68 L27 MX0 M13 NA5 NK5 PB4 PF5 QNX R9Y TR9 TTU T63 UB3 UM6 U57 UV5 UW1 UX7 U26 U41 VH9 V73 WEN 1SC 1SZ 57U 6HT 64E 64I 7HT 8RW 9RW

What does the AU0 Code represent?
