70 XR7 No courtesy lights in the foot wells

While slowly putting things back together, it dawned on me that the courtesy lights are not working.
I checked the 2 foot well bulbs, and both have continuity. I pulled the driver’s side jamb switch out, and it has power to 1 of the 3 pins. At this moment, I am unable to check the passenger side switch. I do not have the door panels, or the opera lights installed yet. Or the dash pad. Just dawned on me… will the dash pad not being installed affect the courtesy lights?

Yup, the XR7 switches in the dash pad center opening need to be plugged in for them to work.

Thanks! I had a feeling that may be the case.
