I am having a problem with my interior lights they are strobing when i open the doors, my power locks don't work with the doors open and the horn starts to sound. I think I need a priest for it.. But when i put my key in the ignition and turn it on the lights stop stobing but my chime is constantly chiming any ideas?

Hi Chris75, I would say to start with replacing your ignition switch. There are various symptoms that can be caused by a faulty ignition switch - some of which are not obvious. I would then take a look at your electrical system - starting with the fuses and relays. Replace as necessary. Last, you may want to replace the interior door switches. These are the ones in the door jam that tell the interior lights when to go on and off inside the car. These this doesn't solve your problem I would take it to a trusted mechanic to troubleshoot your electrical system. Good luck!
