Interior light not working but reading lights are?

Hi All

My wife complained that since she's had her caer teh interior light hasnt worked. So I went out and (finallly) had a look yesterday. Took out the bulb which looked okay but put the one out of my car in as I know that works. No light. Checked her bulb in my car and it works. Hmmm. Pressed the buttons on the reading lights and they both work. How odd.

Anyone else had this problem or heard of it?

Not sure about Gen 1 MINIs but is light switch in the right position? normally you can have them off all the time, on all the time, or on with the doors open.

Sadly yes, it doeenst matter what position the switch is in you can turn it on or get it to come on with the doors open? Just seems odd that power is there to the reading lights?
