Does holding the reset button in do anything? If not, might be that the router is simply fried and time to get a new one. If it does react to resetting try just connecting one device to it to see if you can get to the web interface and configure.

If my interior lights are dim is it a fuse problem

No, that's the quick response. If you had a blown fuse you would have no light at all. Have you recently replaced a faulty globe in the interior light? if so, then the likelyhood is that you've put a lower power rated globe in than the original. An auto-electrician will know the correct globe to fit.The other thing an Auto electrician can check is to see if you have an earth fault in the wiring of the fitting.

The brake light on my dash stays on even when the emergency brake is off. THe interior light sometimes goes on when the door is opened, sometimes doesn't and the ignition light doesn't always come on

The handbrake warning light is activated by a switch on the handbrake bracket under the console. This is most likely stuck or broken.

The interior light staying off when the door opens is common. It could be that a door plunger switch is sticking (they can corrode inside), or there is poor contact at each end of the dome light globe. Take out the globe and press the contacts closer (just a bit) then push the globe back in, checking that it is firmly held. Then spray a little WD40 or similar on the plunger of each door switch and press it in a few times against the spring.

Which ignition light is not working, one of the warning lights? Or the check engine light?

If by "reset", you mean you have done a factory defaults reset by pressing and holding the RESET button down for 15 to 20 seconds, then it sounds like your router has failed.
If you haven't held down the RESET button on the back for 15 to 20 seconds, then try that. If that doesn't return the router to working order, then the device is defective.
You should be able to get a warranty replacement.

Need instructions for setting Globe outdoor timer photocell model one button on/off #16UL/PC-24222

Use the on/off button to cycle through in the following order:

F = off

0 = on

1-9 = Number of hours unit stays on after detecting 15 seconds of low light

R = Random. After detecting low lux for 15 seconds, unit will select random number of hours to stay on. Will repeat randomization cycle in 24 hrs

d = On from dusk til dawn

1.-9. = (number followed by period) On now and will shut off after the indicated number of hours elapses.

Neat little timer. Have fun with it.

Down light globe change

usually the light is changed by just rotating the inner part of the face. This should then drop down where you'll find the globe held in place by 2 metal pieces. Simply pull the globe out and put a new one in. Oh and it doesn't matter which way you connect the 2 wires to the globe either (turn off the light switch first).
