roof lights / courtesy lights

hello everyone,

i have a little problem with my roof lights. they WON'T turn off. when i hit the switch or open the doors, they are normal brightness (12V) with the doors closed and all switches off the front roof lights remain on but appear to be dimmer. after measuring the voltage i found out that they get 8V from somewhere. now thats really weird. usually those roof lights have a delay of about 15 seconds and then they shut off (provided all doors are closed) yet fro some reason mine wont. i am wondering if anyone can help me somehow. i have a C220 1994. i was installing new door sills and feeding those from the roof lights. at first everything was fine the lights would actually go off as usual. but just when i was finishing up and refitting the moldings back into place i noticed that the lights are always on. well i sure hope one of you can help me out somehow. thanks in advance
