I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not come on when I open the door. I have pushed the dome light button in and have left the button out still no lights when I open the door. Any suggestions?


Next to the round exterior light switch is a switch that controls the brightness of the interior dome lights. You can push (detent) that button in and it will pop out to make it easier to brighten/dim those lights. The tricky part is that the switch for making the dome lights illuminate when you enter/exit the vehicle is actually the top half of the backplate of the dome brightness switch. It says "dome off" on the upper portion of the backplate. That one inch area - that barely depresses - is actually the switch to make the dome lights work with the door operation. Try pressing it and then opening your door. It should work. Good Luck!

2008 chevy express dome lights won't come on when doors are open but will come on with the switch on the dash


Dome light issues with Chevrolet Express van. Easy Fix
To the right of the headlight switch/knob, there is a square plastic base for the "dimmer" It has a post-like button in the center .. above the post is a switch - it doesn't look like one (it reads "Dome Off"). Press it in, and the interrior lights will come on when the doors open, etc. I just had my van serviced, and had to do this myself.

2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when door shut, but door ajar light is dark?Could this be the door switch? are there different switches for the door ajar light and the dome light? How can I...


The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

Dome light does not come on when doors open, but does when dim switch is rotated. The dome light bypass button has no effect on it.


All the door switches use the same wiring harness. It's an orange and a white wire. There is a switch on the dash to turn the dome and wheel lights off. If the lights come on with the dimmer, the whole harness is OK, so now check to see if that switch is turned off... or bad
