I hope one day to be a contributor instead of just asking questions!

My 1996 V6 Mustangs (more or less a base model) interior lights do not work. I have checked all of the fuses and bulbs; all are good. The lights do not come on when opening either of the two doors, nor do they come on when manually switching on the dome lights or opening the lighted visor mirrors.

One other possibly related clue to this might be that the power door locks don't work either. I am aware of the door lock actuator problem (having read about it and experienced it with my F-150) but the locks appear to be completely dead without a hint of even trying to work.

Can anyone point me in the right direction or where I should start (after having checked fuses and bulbs)?

I'm concerned with this as I see it as a safety problem for my teen-aged daughter. Thanks very much!

Mustang Dome Lights

Thanks, if I figure it out I'll let you know. My Caprice had the same problem, but there was a dome light delay (a relay). That was easy - once I located it.

Mustang Dome Light

Thanks, the wiring diagram in the Chilton manual look kind of sparse. Going to be out of town this weekend so I won't get to play with my car (it's actually my daughters)
