Hi all

I've just got myself a 1998 GS300. I bought a spare key and have been able to program it so it starts the engine, but haven't been able to get the car into reprogramming mode for the remote fob. I think this is beacause the car isn't recognising when the doors are open. The door open warning light on the dash comes on when the boot is opened, but not when any door is opened, which means the dome and puddle lights dont come on either. Ive seen other posts where the door open warning hasn't worked for one door, but mine isn't working for any door. Can anyone point me in the right direction!?
thanks

Bit of an update...

The door open warning and interior lights have worked intermittently from the drivers door, and I've managed to reprogramme they key :-D 

The door open and interior lights still dont work most of the time from the drivers door, and have never worked from the other doors. While I can live with this, there is a risk of the car locking itself, so I'd like to get it sorted. Is my problem most likely to be with the door switches or a body control module?

 

Cheers

Under normal circumstances I would have said check the drivers door switch. However the fact that the other doors do not operate the interior lights something else is wrong. It would still be a simple matter to check out the drivers door switch though.

Thanks John

Isn't the switch built into the door latch? The interior lights should come on when a door is opened, but mine don't (most of the time) and neither does the door open warning on the dashboard
