I know... Another one...
But I need help.
My reverse lights will need go on when reverse is selected. Plus my interior light will not turn off.
I have used the manual wiring loom and computer.
Have also plugged the park/neutral switch in.
Any ideas?

If you have used the maual loom then the reverse light switch wire should just hook up to the switch itself and work from there. Unless the switch is faulty. Interior light is a wierd one. You havent got a blown fuse somehwere maybe.

Have you tried bridging the wires over to see if the lights come on. That would then also tell if its the switch or not.

what do you mean you plugged the park/neutral switch in? have you got the small adaptor that goes between power button wiring and inhibitor switch wiring?

with the interior light, make sure you haven't bumped the dash dimmer switch to the up position.

No. I do not have that adaptor.
That is a good point Wamboin.
Park/neutral switch. The inhibitor switch is what I meant.

that adaptor is where the reverse light wiring in the manual harness connects to the reverse light wiring of the vehicle.

pretty sure it is blue wire on the power button wiring, to the green wire on inhibitor switch. then join grey and grey blue.

You got the interior light correct.

Wamboin, you genius. Made my own adaptor up and it all works.
Only thing that will annoy me is the PWR light in the dash. A bulb removal will fix that!
