I stumbled into the garage last night to grab another beer and was met with an eerie glow coming from my TR (see pic). Having been out for a spin earlier in the day, the roof was down and I believe it was this that has allowed me to see a problem that I had not previously seen.......the interior lights being on.
1 - I am a muppet with electrics (and so please talk to me as if I am capable of little more than changing bulbs or putting a multi across battery terminals!)
2 - I have had a an intermittent (maybe 3 times a year) issue with the fuse that powers lights, OD and gauges blowing
3 - coming home from LMC last year, the interior light flashed on a couple of times when going over bumps (only visible at night) - I looked for problems with the wiring but nothing obvious and I haven't noticed since.
And so some questions:
* - the car is hooked up to a battery tender so no issue with battery being drained but am I right in thinking that removing the bulbs will remove any power drain?
* - are these lights supposed to be on a live feed so powered at all times?
* - is this on the same fuse as OD etc?
* - any thoughts on where the issue may be? I have tried to follow wires in loom and cant see any obvious bare wires but a few pointers as to where I should look would be appreciated.
