They are a rocking affair with all the way tilted in one direction being off all the time, in the middle is on with the timer in the fusebox, and fully tilted the other way is on all the time.
IIRC, the timer needs to be present (or bypassed as descibed up in the spider subsection somewhere) for the lights to function regardless.
Presuming of course the bulbs are good, the light housings are assembled correctly and the wiring is hooked up properly.
'curtesy lights' or 'curtesy lamps' would prolly yield the most results via the forum search engine here and in the spider subsection.
Thanks for infomation on tilting light housing both lights work when tilted one way, in the middle nothing and the other way on the tilt, nothing. where is the relay please describe and where can i purchase a new one. thanks for the help walt...
N10 in the schematic below is where the timer goes in your fusebox. You prolly won't have any luck getting a new one (hens teeth and all that) but perhaps someone that's breaking a car in the parts for sale subsection would have a good used one available.
Otherwise, while digging around or wating for one to turn up, you can jumper two terminals as shown in the photograph which effectively bypasses the timer and allows the lights to come on when the door is open and shut off immediately when the door is closed. IOW, they'll act like regular un-timed curtesy lights.
