Thanks for the replies.
The older SD have delay? That would be great. I dont think mine works anymore becasue of the flakey rotary dial. In fact if I jiggle it enough, it will come on when i open the door, but it goes off as soon as the door is closed. Its operation is intermittant, and to change the setting using the dial takes a delicate touch, I/ve got to get the contacts just right.
My temp sensor is on the dash.
I'll persue the a new 'old style' dome lamp and see if I get the 'delay' work. If the relay is somewhere else, any ideas where I should look for it?
