Question about GMC Sierra 1500

1 Answer

I have a 2002 gmc sierra 1500 and I can't find the button that turns off the dome light when you close the door.

I don't have power windows or doors. The dome light won't turn off when the door shuts. It tries to and goes click click and then turns back on. I found the relays but they weren't the problem. I can replace the headlight switch which also contains the dome light controls but I wanted to check the button that gets pushed when the door closes and I can't find it anywhere!

The button is part of the latch that holds the door shut. If you have that many issues I wonder if the wiring harness in between the door is bad?

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help. The problem was with the headlamp switch module which also contains the dome override and dash light switch. I disconnected it and the dome light works as it should when the door opens and closes. I ordered a new headlamp switch. Thanks again!"

SOURCE: 2000 gmc sierra 1500 5.3 v8. a/c heater control problem

your heat/cool and vent selection options are controlled by engine vacuum through small clear tubes attached to the rear of your climate control interface. Other vehicles have small steel pull wires that operate the desired changes. You might try removing the trim and any fasteners affiliated with the interface/console. GENTLY pull outward and look to see if any of these tubes are pulled off or cut/damaged. Did anyone recently install a new stereo in the vehicle? If so, the vacuum tubing and or pull wires that change your outlets could have been damaged when the stereo unit was pushed into place. Hope this helps

Interior light delay


Same for both doors? If not, I'd check the switch(s) on the drivers door (may be more than one), or may be just one that has multiple contacts and the ones for the lights may be faulty.

Flickering lights on 2004 gmc sierra. alternator changed


Hi J, The ground connections are on each of the units. that is to say there is one power feed to the dome and another to the instrument panel. From there each door is separately grounded via each of the door switches. If one is rusted, contaminated or damaged and not operating correctly, it will cause the dome light and the door warning on the instrument panel to flicker. regards John

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?


Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

I have a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 and the dome light will not work when you open the door, it will work however if you turn on the dash brightness control knob? What fuse controls this function?


This may not be a fuse if the light works otherwise. Try checking the wiring to the door switches. Sometimes the spade connectors work loose or corrode, so the circuit cannot be closed.

4 wheel drive gmc sierra 1500 1993. the cigarette lighter, radio and inside cab light suddenly don't work. is there a relay or fuse in engine compartment i could look at?


your fuse panel is either under the dash by the drivers left knee or on the side of the dash where it meets the door. the radio fuse should be the second from the top right side of the fuse panel. its a 10 amp fuse. the power for the switch should be a 16 gauge wire run from the passenger firewall (under hood.) behind a plastic cover where a lot of wires are bolted to posts. that red wire feeds power to almost everything in the cab. it runs behind the glove box and has a disconnect there. if the fuse is not bad and the wire looks good, check the ground on the passenger door "open switch" (the one that is supposed to turn on the dome light. that is where the whole system is grounded for the int. lights lights

My interior dome lights flicker


Sounds like you have loose wiring or a short in the power door locks. Try looking behind the power door lock switch and work your way back through the door to see if there are any loose or bare wires touching on any doors with a lock button. A Chilton or Haynes Manual for your exact car may be found at a library or most auto parts stores, and they'd be able to give you the exact location and diagrams of the wiring for your power door locks. The dome light may be a loose or broken switch in the door that turns the lights on/off when you open/close the door, try tightening the bolts or nuts holding this switch to the door frame. Hope I could help.
