Default Interior Lights Don't Work???

Non of my interior lights work (courtesy lights). I replaced all the door lights today with ones I know work. The dome works when I turn it on manualy. I doesn't matter what door I open there are no lights. I can't imagine all my door switches being bad. Any help? Thanks

Need someone with a 92 manual to better point you in the right direction.

If the 92'* are like the 96'* with respect to the MALL module, I had the same issue with my SSEi, and it ended up being a fault in the MALL module. It started with the lights not going on when opening the doors- only when turned on by the dimmer switch (previous owner), and one day ended up with the interior lights being stuck on- and not going off except when fuse 6a was pulled. After performing the mall diagnostics (in thread below) as well as talking to the previous owner, (at the advice of the gearheads as well) I bought a MALL from the junkyard, and it fixed the problem.

I found this thread helpful- as it lists how to test the mall module- as well as the different I/O'*, etc.

I'm sure a gearhead would have a much better idea of the issue, as well as whether or not your car has the same/similar MALL module.

I hope this helps

Rusted, great idea... however 92 components are a bit different. Without someone confirming the testing ability for the 92 from the FSM, I'm unsure it exists.

That sounds right my door locks don't work also. Where is this "mall" box and I will just switch it from one of my parts cars. Thanks
