That was easy
Working on a console clock issue I squeezed myself under the dash and took a look at the fuse block. One fuse was missing. Then I remembered that sometime during the second Bush adminsitration I had some issue on the road and I removed fuse for the interior lights, the map light, some kind of buzzer for use in what was probably the headllights or ??

Anyways... I put a new fuse in and 'viola!' I now have interior lights, map light, a buzzer if I leave the keys in and the door is open. Nice!

'viola' - isn't that some kind of musical instrument? Big Grin

Anyway I removed that buzzer (from above the glovebox) on my car because every time I worked on the car it was VERY ANNOYING. I like these modern cars that make the polite 'blong blong' sound when you open the door with the engine off but the lights on - must have saved a lot of people from a flat battery.

One thing I do like about these cars is the footwell lights. I think it took another 20 or 30 years for european cars to get things like that.
I was totally shocked when my buzzer and courtesy lights came on when I first plugged in the battery after running the original wiring harness back into its original places.

I'm sure the painter is hating right now, since the doors are off, and the courtesy lights & buzzer are constantly on if the key's in the ignition.

After that, I patted myself on the back to taking my time and being careful in pulling it out of the car. Wink
