Select the interior light switch (on ceiling) to "door".

(I stopped in here a couple of minutes ago repeating the words "no flame zone, no flame zone..." and just kept my mouth shut.)
Ah, I see, there may be a malfunction. I'd check the fuses. Is she new? can the dealer take a peek at it?

My vote would be for the door switch..... check the rubber shrouded door switch that detects whether the door is open or not.

Mine was giving me issues when I first purchased my second-hand FJ. It has since been flawless. When it was giving me issues I could wiggle the switch (in the door) a bit and it would come on.

:cheers:

Isn't that what Fjamming said in his reply to your question?

Anyway, welcome to FJ ownership. It's a blast!

:) I think he might have tried that but thought it was the wrong switch because the light stayed on for a while if the door wasn't closed. It takes about 30 seconds for it to go off but looks like he eventually figured it out. :clap:
