I have a 2008 T5 shuttle with standard roof lights.

2 step lights, 4 large lights in the centre each with map light, 2 rear lights at the back and a small light lower down at the back.

im having a few issues with them.
First of all the front cab light works fine. On the doors and the remote and times out after a while as it should. The 2 slide door step lights work on and off with the slide door.
the others have minds of their own. When all doors closed I can get them to come on with the switch for the map lights. But they go dim and the map lights light up very dull.
if I put a bulb in the very rear low down light then the large centre lights come on and stay on with the tailgate open.
not closed the tailgate to try yet.
I’m kind of stuck as to where to go with it. seem to me like an earth fault or switch issue with a door contact.
Any advise.
Also 2 centre lights don’t have bulbs. Do all lights have to have bulbs in for the system to work correctly. (I’m sure they were working fine before.
