Question Small electrical problem

I started this thread w/ out looking for another thread but any help would be greatly appreciated. I've had my 05 wrx for about 2 years. About 3 months ago little things started happening. First I had my headlight bulbs and fog light bulbs replaced. Then out of nowhere my right front fog light goes out after a month. Then my left front corner amber lamp goes out. Now whenever the back doors are opened my dome light doesn't come on. Now can anyone point me in the right direction on how and what to inspect and replace. Also I haven't really even attempted to fix it since I have no time. Also anyone have step by step procedure on how to install apexi turbo timer? Thnx for the help!

Did you do any mods/installs about 3 months ago that triggered this? I would check bulbs, fuses, connections, relay, and switch in that order. If you have/had bad bulbs in there they can blow out quickly, or you may have pinched the harness somewhere? Start there and tell us what you find. GL

Have the charging system checked to make sure the DC voltage is no more than 14.8 volts while the engine is reving to around 2,000 RPM. Also check that the AC voltage is no more than .1 volt.

If the front doors are turning on the dome light then there is a connection problem to the rear doors. Possibly in the pillar area between the doors.
