we found a charming problem that's semi common, the light on the c-pillar can have a internal brain fart ground out and pop the 7.5 amp fuse for the interior lights, if somebody puts a higher power fuse in to try to solve the problem you can fry the $3300 body harness which on this car also fried the $1200 abs computer and a light module (can't remember the $) and a couple other things that i can't remember, all in all it's around 9 grand to get everything right with labor and parts. this happined to a stupid customer of ours who instead of bringing the car to us to figure out why the car was blowing fuses took it to a jiffy lube type place to replace the fuse, the asswipe there started putting bigger and bigger fuses in everytime the car came back, and proceeded to nuke the harness. check out the lights on the rear pillars i've been told that theres a updated version
