Question about Cars & Trucks
Dome light does not work when the driver door is open
If it works when passenger door opened either the driver switch is stuck, or bad---give that one some W-D 40 to see if it helps or not.

My Neon did this.....The door sensors were messed up and i just ended up taping pennys to the little knob.....It was a idea from my co-worker who had a Neon and had the same problem....

My wife showed me that one- the doom lite in center of roof is 3 postision, slide it to passanger side then back to center. Its a poorly made switch but once set in middle the lites will come on/off with door openning/closing. Be aware it dims delays when going off, not immediate.

you have a bad door switch usually located in the door jam if you are sitting in the seat and your door is open look for something that looks like a small button about the size of a pencil eraser it is possible the plunger is broken off so all you may see is a metal object with a hole, replace this if plunger is broken

the actuator for the dome light is actually located inside the lock mechanism. Have you checked to make sure the dome light override button is in the out position?
