The mere fact that we are having this discussion suggests that the system is overly complicated. Some engineer at Ford got carried away. When a door is open, I want my light. It really should be that simple.
I agree.. there are several things such as this one, that are overly complicated in this car.. Engineers need to simplify things... it's often better and cheaper. and, while we're on the 'engineering' thing... why is the glove box designed so that it's pretty much inaccessable from the driver's seat? dumb..
