2018 DS cargo bay light operation?

I noticed tonight that with the cargo light master switch on inside the pass side front seat area, all compartments closed the bay lights stay on. I tried unplugging all of the door switch’s and the lights remained on. Any ideas? Stuart

Hi Stuart,
Can’t help with this issue as mine is the same. It’s on my list of fix-its when I take it in. I will let you know what they did to correct.

Mine is the same. Door switches do not seem to do anything.

I don't have switches on my doors, but was just wondering if you turn off the cockpit switch and then open the door, does the switch function properly ?

2018 DS cargo bay light operation?

Switch off inside, door open no light
Switch on inside, lights on all of the time
Cargo door switches provide a ground to the lights when door is open

Call Newmar but you may have your first warranty issue.

Stuart, can you confirm that the switch is for the lights? Could it be for the door locks?

I will do that today, Scotty was the one that explained them last week. I did confirm that the DS forward electrical bay light goes on and off with the plunger switch for that compartment.

Oh boy! On the phone with Newmar rep. First question “if all doors are closed how do you know the lights are on?” Next do you have a switch inside? “ yes “then you don’t have plungers”. I hung up

Because I’m calling from inside the cargo bay. Incidentally, how do I open the door from the inside?

Tried mine in the 4018 on Spartan. With interior switch on and one door open all lights on. Pressed the plunger all lights went off. Two or more doors open all lights stayed on when any plungers pressed individually.

I would bet that somewhere somebody ran a screw through a wire making a permanent ground in the circuit somewhere??
