The light does not come on in the glove box when the door is opened nor do the interior lights when the passenger door is opened. The interior lights do come on when the driver door is opened. I have checked the switches and bulbs for functionality. Any suggestions??

The glove box light doesn't come on unless the headlights are on! I questioned the dealer service mgr on this when I first noticed it on our 87 SIII. He said the Jag people think the glove box light isn't needed unless it's dark, in which case your headlights are probably on! When I said "Oh, it's supposed to be like that?", he said: "No, it's not SUPPOSED to be like that, bit that's the way Jag designed it!" That's not supposed to be the case with your interior lights, however.
