Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

My car's dome light keeps going on and off on it's own even when the doors are shut. I would take off the bulbs, but they made it so hard to take the stupid things off. Go figure.

Dome light bulb replace


There sometime is 2 fuse boxes on cars, one under the hood, and one inside the car somewhere. Check both boxes, make sure all the fuses are not blown, then if everything is good try replacing the switch in the door and/or on the dome light itself.

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.
