is the little button press in the door wedged at all? like stuck or free moving? a Problem with that maybe the reason its not working, also it is a possibility a globe has blown but not very likely, im no pro but are you sure the SV6's came with the warning?

i had that problem and took it back for warenty and the mechanic said to me the sv6 doesnt even have the wiring loom to make the light work ive just learnt to make sure all the doors are shut and then ive also made it so the doors auto lock in a drive gear so even if a door is ajar it is still safe as the door is locked

lol no wiring loom connected??? sounds like we are moving backwards not forwards in car features... but i guess its just a way to cut costs?? then why would they add the little button press for the door?

and alarm and interior lighting,


wasnt the fact that the wiring loom isnt there, more the fact it wasnt wired up to work, just wasnt something used in Australia, was probably export model that requires it as part of a design rule, same as the passenger seat belt light thats there
