Check the switch, there should be a manual over ride switch or button. Check the owners manual for the override switch.

I would think that if all the switches on the doors are good, and the bulb is good, check to see if there is power to the lights. There should be power there at all times; the switches give the light a ground. Or, the ground point physically on the lamp assby needs cleaned.

Interior light won't come on when I open the front doors


If you have tried to adjust your interior lights with your dash light adjuster, and it didn't work, I would say you either have a bulb out, or a blown fuse. Hope it's something simple for you. GOOD LUCK

Tail lights do not work all lights work but the back lights do not work. I change the fuse but lights still don't come on. all the other lights work is there other fuses i need to replace


if the bulbs are ok! check bulb socket to see if you have power.with test light, if not make sure sockets are clean. check the bulbs first, because they are a double filiment bulb. for brakes and tail lights. did you change the correct fuse!! it is located in interior fuse box on drivers side end of dash. its on bottom left side of fuse box. its labled "stp lps". hope this helps,

I need to know which fuse needs to be replaced to make the driver's side brake light work? What a pain this always is. Who's idea was it to NOT include a fuse map for the interior of this car? Good Lord.


There is no separate fuse for one brake light,check the connector at the brake light bulb,and replace the bulbs,do not change the bulb out with a similar number,like if it uses a 3057 bulb,do not use a 3157,they are different.Look at the terminals,with no voltage to the light,and bend the contacts for the bulb inward to make sure there is contact.

Map light fuse on 2008 f 350????


The interior map lamps are powered buy the battery saver relay ( non serviceable relay ) Which is powered by Fuse #25 ( cab fuse panel ).
This is for the engine compartment and illuminated vanity lamps, as well as the map lights.

The FET ( Field-Effect Transistor ) shows the fuse #9 also on it. ( marked interior lighting ), which power the interior lamps ( door / switch ).

Could be a few things if both those fuses are OK.

1. The map / interior lamp combos are usually dual element bulbs, which means if the interior lamps ( door or dimer switch on headlamp panel ) are OK, it could still be a burn out bulb.

2. The FET is having an issue from a dead short ( blown bulb or dead short to ground ). Until the short is correct, the FET will not turn back on.

Start with checking Fuse #9 ( marked as Fuse #8 in the diagram, but that shows headlamp ), which is to the interior lamps, and drives 1 side of the FET.
