Sure it is the micro switch

I was playing with the door latch for a while. There is an audible >click< coming from a micro switch when moving the spring loaded latching fork into the door. After a certain point it decides "hey the chap closed the door" and dims the interior lights. So, that function must be operating OK.
The common pin of the micro switch should switch to another contact I guess, but it doesn't. That's why the logic is messed up and won't allow the radio control to operate, right?

And, when playing with the micro switch dozens of times it operates again and radio key opens and closes door normally-and dies after a while.

If I only had the schematic available right now...I think I gotta go to Renault dealer and buy the switch in forehand. Don't even know if it is a normal "Cherry brand" type switch which I already have in hand.

Skoda Octavia 2.0 TDI 2007, Laguna 2000 2.0
