Your little plunger switch connection just below the door hinge is corroded or defective on that door. The switch is not on the door itself but on the frame where the body meets the door when closed. You can push in the switch with your finger to test it.

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?

Door switch operation when drivers door pin switch open position; poor ground circuit control. Try wiggle testing pin switch. Harness is routed from door switch along floor board rocker sill.

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?


Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open


Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

My interior lights will not shut off after I've turned the car off, got out and locked the door. The 'check' the car usually goes through stops and just states 'checking...' and the lights will not go off.


Take your interior lamp out for now until you take it to your garage so your battery does not go flat! one of your door switches is faulty or the wire is trapped to earth somewhere.
