  • Most cars (that use a door pin switch similar to this) DO use a NO switch that goes to ground when the door opens. Many newer Ford/Mazda/Volvo products use NC switches (built into the door latch mechanism) that go to open when the door is open….and the dome lights are controlled through a Body Control Module (BCM). Depending on size, these might be a handy “hack” for “fixing” bad latch contacts on these types of cars.

No public wish lists :(
