: Having trouble with interior light operation (89 525i)- goes on when I open the doors, stays on for in excess of an hour. Sometimes won't come on at all. Doesn't seem related to any door switches - any thoughts/expeience

: be grateful for any help/ideas

The system is designed so that if you forget to turn off the interior light, it will turn off automatically in about an hour. You should look for a bad swith or wireing, making intermittent contact and/or short to ground.
