Courtesy/Interior Light relay location on 96 XJ Sport?
I am trying to locate the courtesy/interior light relay on my 96 Sport. It is not in the relay block under the steering column, nor in the power dist center over the right front wheel. I looked behind both front interior kick panels and nothing there (relays were there in AMC days). Can't here a click when operating door button switches. Real mystery. This model has no body control box like later Grand Cheros.
Searched all over the usual forums and found nothing that helped.
Cargo dome light switch did nothing. Turns out it is in series with the liftgate latch switch, which is grounds the interior lighting circuit. Liftgate switch was not functioning at all and leaving the light circuit open.
Fixed the bent part. All works fine now. Thanks for the help.
I would suggest anyone having issues with lights staying on check this item out. The interior panel on the liftgate needs to be removed. (Be prepared to use screws to reinstall, since removal seems to destroy the plastic nail holders.)
