My interior lights do not work. Dash lights are fine.
When I open the doors or turn the light switch on to turn on the interior lights, they do not come on. The reading lights stopped working, as well. Even though the interior lights all over the car did not work, the reading lights still did for a while. Now, all interior lights are out. The dashboard lights up fine. Thank you.

If you open other doors besides the driver door do the lights work? If so the door ajar switch is defective in the driver door. Also can you turn on the interior lights from the headlight switch control?
It can be one of two problems. One: pending on what kind of car you have. ..there is a switch near the steering column that turns left or right...adjusting your dash lights and or turning on/you interior lights.#2...check the interior fuse bus panel/box
If a fuse is blown for your interior lights they will not light at all. the fuse panel is on the driver side end of dash where the door touches the dash board, can only access with the door open and small 7'x6" cover is removed, it pulls off by hand
Open one door at a time and press the door button-switch (in the door-frame, hinge side usually) to see if that switch will shut off the light. If you find one that does, either extend the button length slightly with hot glue or epoxy, or replace the switch. Make sure the light has not been turned on at the light or that the switch is bad.
The data link gets it's power from fuse no. 3(20 amp) in the interior fuse panel,which also is the power for cig. lighter. This fuse gets it's power from fuse no. 103 in the battery junction box (50 amp).
For the interior lights the door adjar switches in the door send a signal to the GEM module.It then grounds the coil side of the interior lamp relay. The switch on the dash that you turn on manually also grounds the coil side of the interior lamp relay so that would mean that everyrhing after the GEM is ok.Are the lights not turning on from any door including the deck lid? If not then problem would have to be in the GEM module.
