Did you check the dome override button? It shoiuld not be pressed in, otherwise the lights won't come on with the door or the dimmer slide switch moved all the way to the top.

Reverse and interior lights out, chevy express van


Fuse block under the hood. Driver's side, under the brake master cylinder. Number 18. TCB#2. Replace the fuse.

There is an under-engineered ground in the reverse circuit. If you back up with the dome lights on, it could blow that fuse. There should be some extra fuses under the cover of the fuse block.

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.

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

Dome lights inop.


On all doors, it comes on momentarily, then off, as well as switch on dash, leads me to believe there is a circuit breaker in that circuit that's tripping. In some vehicles, they'll use these for power windows, and other circuits for some reason. Have you pulled dome light down & checked that light itself has a good ground going to it, and no bare wire or connector in behind panel that may be rubbing on metal ?
