Default Re: Mustang dome light question

ok so i got my mustang light in (pics coming soon) which was a direct bolt on, but the light only works if the door is opened:

when the door is opened, the dome light works and i can turn the map lights on and off, but when the door is closed, the dome light stay on constantly, and the map lights on each side do not work...

any feedback?

Sounds like you have your power wires reversed, did you install the light backwards?

Yeah from what your decribing you'll be working as you want if you swap the two power wires.
