You can buy the door jam switches new and run and a positive wire to the switch. The screws earth it.

Helen,

You're right.  You'd need to raid a Special for the door jamb switches and wiring.  And hopefully you don't have to run a wire up to the dome lamp for the courtesy switches.

Ah hadn't thought about the wire up to the dome lamp - that one may be a bit more tricky - will have to have a good look at the wiring - might just leave them if its not there - a job maybe if I ever replace the hood lining

The wiring diagram shows a white wire from the switch side of the dome lamp going to the door jamb switches.  It's dashed rather than solid.  That means you'd have to run the wire up to the dome lamp.

You'd have to take the dome lamp out, unplug the orange wire from the dome lamp, tape a guide wire to the orange wire, pull the orange wire through from under the dash until the guide wire comes through, then tape a (white) wire to the orange wire and guide wire, and then pull the guide wire through from the hole in the headlining until the white and orange wires come through.

That's if everything goes ideally and the wires don't snag on the bodywork.  It is a royal pain sending the body wiring up through the A-pillar, and that with no headlining.

What you do is use the original power wire to draw through some light tie wire, then pull back power and white earth. Early upgrade I did on my standard sedan.

The switches are available from Rares et al (donít start rob).

Helen, pic of white wire that links the door switches in the A pillars, the last pic shows the clip that secures the wire to the lower dash lip
