There is a plastic tab on 2 sides of the clear (opaque) plastic cover. the cover should be squeezed in towards the center of the light, which will allow the plastic tabs to release from the light fixture so u can remove the cover. Squeeze again to re-install. If you have trouble removing this way, very gently insert small flat screwdriver at outside center of lens, pry gently in to see and release tab.

if it is covered by a white plastic then inspect it carefully and look for slots where you can put tiny screwdrivers to pry the plastics off, then you can replace your bulb. just be careful not to break the plastic.

Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

Without seeing it, I would guess that you have a problem with clean contacts. Especially in cars with smokers, the contacts of something like a fuse or a light bulb can become corroded just enough to stop the light from working. Wiggling it scrapes away the debris and allows for contact. I suggest that you take some steel wool and lightly scrub the contact points on both the light and the fixture. **Be sure to have all the doors closed so you dont short out the steel wool.** If you are concerned with the abrasive nature of the steel wool, a pencil eraser will sometimes work just as well. Either way, it just sounds dirty which is par for any car. Good luck!

This is a real pain, took me forever to find mine... there is a little TINY slot that you can fit a VERY small flat head screwdriver in to pop it off.

Dont worry, the plastic is durable, just try to use a precision screwdriver if you have one and basically pry it open. it really will just Pop off once you get in there

What will cause the dome light not to come on


Probably a blown bulb or popped fuse. Sometimes the back of the dome light can ground against the underside of the roof, popping the fuse. Start by replacing the bulb.

Ford taurus tss 2004 map lights work but dome light wont come on


It is possible the bulb in the dome light is burnt out or there is a bad connection @ the bulb. That is at least where you start. you will need to remove the dome light cover & wiggle the bulb while the door is open, or best to have two doors open to remove the possibility of a faulty switch. If it still doesn't flicker or start to work remove the bulb & inspect it to see if the filament is broken. If you can't tell best to replace the bulb & try again.
Please advise if you need more help.

Same problem: door ajar light was on, dome light


Check fuse 23, 27 and 33 inside the vehicle. Chances are you blew a fuse when the dome lamp shorted. The modules should be okay.

Just purchased 2001 Tiburon. Both dome lights do


which door are you using when you try this. It could be the door switch for that door. If the bulb is still good try another door and see if it comes on

Filament gets fractured, possibly by vibration of the roof lining. I have replaced mine 4 times and while the bulb looks OK it is high resistance, buy a few bulbs and replace them when it occurs.
