SOURCE: DOOR WONT OPEN

This is a common problem on Kia, see here.
When this happens it is because the door latch is jammed, in this case pulling on the push rod won't open it.
You can partially remove the door panel to bypass the latch, so that you can help the door to open from the inside, but this is not an easy job, and you risk to cause further damage.
Better to take the car back in to the car dealer for a quick repair.

SOURCE: I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not

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!

SOURCE: 2004 kia sorento the dome light will not come on

The problem is the diode needs to be replaced. The dome light works in the "on" position, but does not work when any of the doors are opened. The diode itself is about half the size of a dime which you can buy from a kia dealer for less then $20. You don't have to disconnect the battery to do this.
1. Remove the kick panel which is right next to the foot rest on the drivers side and where the fuse box is located. You will have to pry open the door foot guard to get to the other screw for the kick panel.
2. right next to the fuses box there is a wiring harness wraped in black cloth like material or some type of harness cover, just peel it back or remove. You can feel the diode through the wrap.
3. the diode is in a sleeve like incasement or cover carefully pry open and slide the diode out.
4. replace diode with new one and your done.

Dome light wont come on when door opens but you can use the on switch at the ceiling and it will work


These switches usually have three positions: off, on, on when the door opens. Try checking all three.

2004 kia optima driverside door wont unlock how do I open door


There is probably something wrong with the lock linkage in the door. Have you tried opening it manually from the inside. Repairs on doors that won't open are ten times harder then ones that open.

If my door jamb switch is bad on my 2001 kia optima could it cause the car to have no power at all and not start at all if the battery is fully charged?


YOU MEAN THE DOOR LIGHT SWITCH???? MOST LIKELY YOUR BATTRY WAS DRAINED BY THE DOME LIGHT BEEN ON ALL NIGHT OR ALL DAY. TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS AND CHECK IF THEY WORK OR ARE DIMMED. THATS A SING OF DEAD BATTERY.

If you have tried the inside, and outside door handle, and it does not open you need a new door latch assembly.

Dash lights and rear lights go out if driver side door is opened


There is a electric contact in the door to turn on the dome light when open and off when closed. It sounds like that switch is bad or the wire attached to it has fallen off behind the doorsill. It may be another door though, since all work the dome light. Try opening the other doors one by one to see if they light up the dome. Theres no guarantee because the seat or seatbelt may come into effect.
