Interior/Courtesy light problem

I know I'm on a Camaro forum but here is my problem..I have a 67 Firebird and while driving it tonight I noticed the interior lights would flash on when I turned to the right. The work normal when you open the doors or use the switch to manually turn them on. When the car is sitting still and you turn to the right they don't flash on. Any ideas??
Original wiring harness..
Any help appreciated before I get pissed and rewire the whole car..

Re: Interior/Courtesy light problem

There should be a wire (maybe white) running from the left door switch over to the right door switch. It is the ground for the light circuit and maybe it has a raw place on it that is rubbing on the steering column. See if you can find it under the dash.

Re: Interior/Courtesy light problem

I'm pretty sure I found the problem..The passenger side light under the glove box..The socket had come loose form the mount bracket and when I would turn it would shift over and ground out causing the lights to come on...I'll know for sure after a few drives..Thanks for the help..

Good job. At least your lights work! Still working on mine. Previous owner hacked up my wiring harness. The vert gets a little dark at night.
