Then its possible you have a bad wire or Bad switch or switches in the front doors..

Also when you hit the remote buttons, do the key rings on the door light up too?

It'* been like this for a while, but much more recently my 4 rightmost gauges went a little nuts. I've cleaned the ground buss under my door to no avail.

I cleaned a couple grounds that the gauges and IE have in common. I've got lit key rings now, but no lights when I pull up on the handles. Do they run through the RAC?

I tested the RAC connector. It passed all the tests but one. There should be voltage across to pins when door handles are pulled up, and it should go away when the handles are released. There was always voltage there, handles up or down, key on or off.

If those pins always have voltage, wouldn't the lights always be on?
