Matt, it is the 25A body feed.

Thanks T&G 429, I'll see what I can find out. I did change all fuses shortly after I got the car, so I may need to track down the wiring Gremlin!

I think the — body fd - is the body feed fuse for the on always circuit so give that a test check 

Enjoy

Best tool to be checking fuses with— is a 12v fuse and wire tester 

Looks like a screw driver with a light in the handle and a ground pig tale 

The light turns on when you have power from a source to let you know 

Test both sides of a given fuse to test flow across the fuse 

I think you are having an issue with the door jam switch 

Remove it and inspect it for internal damage ( contacts  come apart internally )

The lights you are referring to is a circuit in the car that is —alway on - so it  will work any time the doors are open 

Often when I had an issue with the interior lights not working as they should  the problem was the door jam switch messing up ( it brakes the on always  circuit ) 

The design is so very simple and fragile it is amazing they have worked as long as they have to me 

I replaced mine with more modern door jam switches that I got at Napa (a  good selection)  as my switches kept causing me a problem knocking the on always circuit out too often 

Enjoy

Any ideas of what fuse/circuit, the courtesy lights on door handles are connected to? Mine went out on my 63, and the back of bench also includes a manual switch to turn these on.

I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…
