Problems Related To Interior Lights Of the Car

The lights are normally installed on the floor of the vehicle and switch on at the time of entrance and going out of the car. The lights switch off when the ignition of the car is switched on and all the doors are closed or locked. These lights help in fastening the seat belts and making it easier for the passengers to smoothly step in and exit out from the car.
