Customer Question

I have a 1988 560SEL and the interior light will not light when one opens the driverside door
JA: Have you checked the vehicle's manual for this?

JA: Are you fixing your 560SEL yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So the timed relay is built into the dome/reading lamp. It's all a basic control module, the lamp that is.I strive to provide 5 star service. If I have satisfactorily answered your question please rate it as such and hit submit. Doing so is the only way I get compensated for my time. Also it doesn't close the discussion so we will still be able to communicate if there are further questions.
Thanks
