Opened another thread on the operation/purpose of the IM -- Gen 2 - Help needed: simple electrical measurement at... -- and confirmed it should be supplying power to the bulbs when any door is opened, so it's switched.

Reluctantly jumping ahead, here's a couple of threads I located about "no step lights" traced to a faulty IM. One mentions the same odd "door ajar" indications, but no explanation for it. We now know why that's happening, and it looks even more likely this is another case of a faulty IM.



Might be an idea to remove the IM and see if there are signs of failure on the board. The second linked thread has photos of a failure, in that case.
