I assume you're talking about all your courtesy lights? You're going to have to find a short somewhere.

I don't see how anything the trans did could possibly cause this.

Cooks, what is the year, make, model, trim level of your vehicle? There shouldn't be any connection between the interior lighting & the tranny like Bill pointed out.
Oh yeah, Welcome to the Club!

Welcome !!!!

Ok problem time. While you are listing the year and model of your car in the profile signature..

Run on out to the car and lift the driverside floormat. Is the carpet wet?

Thought I'd start you on a quick one.

When you get the car back, we'll go through it. We have alot of expertise in 93 SSEi'*. Perhaps more than any other year and trim level. I also have (as do others) full factory service manuals for that year.

We'll fix it. In the meantime, make sure you have a multimeter, and know how to use it.
