Its worth checking the lamps and that you are using the lights correctly.

The lamps are available to order online from Amazon here: C3 interior lights

Instructions for lights fitted to early models are below
C3CAR wrote:The two outer switches operate in the classic way. (with ignition on) That is press once and the switch clicks in and the light switches on, press again and the button pops up and the light goes out.

The centre light is controlled by the centre button and arbitrated by the computer. Pressing the centre button with the ignition off and doors closed will put the light on, but then turning on the ignition the light will go out after a few seconds and come back on after the ignition is switched off. Subsequent opening of a door will put the light back on.

removing the ignition key will also bring the centre light back on.
