    Dome lights wont come on when doors open?

    Are they even supposed to come on in a P5 1999?

    I thought you meant the lights right under the two front seats, the middle light does indeed have doors but I dont have a bulb there.
    Should the front lights light up if I set it to door switch or is it only the middle one?

    Looks just like yours but I lack the bulb. Should the front light light up aswell?

    The middle light with the door switch is the only light that comes on when you open your door...
    Go get a new bulb for it.

    Gotcha, it is possible to rewire it so the front lights come on too? I got leds there and they light up the interior way better than the bulb.

    You could run wires from the metal tabs of the bulb holder for the middle light, to the other bulbs at the front.
    Make sure to disconnect the wires feeding the front bulbs now and reconnect the new ones.

    Be careful not to short the wires.
    I remember one guy fried his circuit when he tried what you want to do.
    It's a bit of a fancy circuit that dims the bulbs slowly to off.

    I'm pretty sure the circuit is in the cluster.

    ^^^ What he said

    I put a small solar panel on the sliding cover for the sunroof... It was a pain to feed the wires around.

    You can probably get an LED bulb for that middle light.

    You should disconnect your battery if you try to feed wires. There is constant +12 volts going to the middle light all the time. One short circuit and you could blow the circuit.
