The front interior lights are activated by the doors etc. The rear ones seem to just have an internal switch, which is useless as far as passengers are concerned. Is this how they are intended to work or are mine not wired correctly?

On mine the rear turn on with the doors and have a switch so passengers can manually use them when diving too.

What model/year is your ceed?

My first 4 Tech, a 62 plate and my new one, a 16 plate are the same. The rear two lights are only operated by the passengers. At night it is pitch black in the rear of the car, the black carpet and seats do not help at all. A poor feature on a £24,000 car.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I have been away for the weekend. It's a 13 plate 4 Tech Sportswagon. Interesting that GT1994,s car works as I would have expected whilst KiaSteve's both work (or rather don't!) as mine.
