300se coupe interior light issue

Minor problem but I can't seem to track it down. The interior light doesn't come on when I open the driver's door but works with the passenger door. I checked the door switch and didn't find fault with it. I understand that the driver's door is on a time delay where the light stays on for a few seconds after the door is shut.
Is there a relay switch somewhere that I need to check?

When you say you "checked the door switch" what do you mean? I had the same problem and when I took the leather panel off, I saw that the plug to the switch was disconnected on my coupe. Check whether you have any power on your electrical supply wire. Also, double check whether your switch really closes the circuit. If that is all OK, it must be in the circuit leading from the siwtch to the light.

Good luck.
