no joke, there is a little switch near the headlight switch which adjusts the brightness of the cluster bulbs and also can turn on the interior light

the BEM controls the lights turning on and off if the door light buttons dont work that means the light wont turn on when u open a door with a broken door light button so cant be that but i still cleaned mine when i got the car as sometimes they didnt work

ive had the same problem its the BEM

make sure to get a EF bem as EL bems wont work different plugs and different look all together

some people say broken headlight switches can make it turn on and stay on but it would be rare as all hell those switches are tough

the BEM controls pretty much everything except the motor its even ur car immobiliser so if u have something that doesnt work occasionally like radio etc the BEM most likely would also be at fault

replace the BEM m8 its simple and easy to do and even if its not the BEM its common for them to break so never hurts to have a working spare as they can be hard to get at times
