Possible bad electrical section of the ignition switch.

Normally, when the switch goes bad, strange electrical things start to occur.  Lights won't turn off or turn off unexpectedly; other accessories (radio, dash displays, etc.) do not function properly, etc.  Commonly referred to as 'electrical gremlins'.

      My 2003 Carrera 4s has something tricky. It's a 2nd hand car... When you open the door the car's dome light does not lit, nor the doors... But if I put the key on the ignition the it turns on, both: Dome and doors....
      I checked all fuses and they're ok... A relay removed perhaps because of the buzzer or something?
      Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

      Hi Fellow 996ers,
      :help: I'll give a reputation point the first to answer the question about the purpose of what appears to be 2 extra sensors on the interior light assembly - see attached photo, extra bits/sensors circled red. I suspect this assembly is off a later model car than mine.
      The assembly I have in my car (MY2000) does not have these extra bits (also pictured) and was wondering whether the extra bits give me extra horsepower (just kidding). No, seriously, I'm interested whether its worth replacing mine with this and what may be involved.
      As minimum I have already noted that both assemblies have the same 3-pin connector, but different keying on the connector so not simply plug-n-play. The other two connectors (sunroof switch and alarm sensors) are plug-n-play.
      Thanks in advance.
