Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

SOURCE: dome light won't come on when door is opened

Center is the off position. Position 2 is "on when doors are open", Position 1 is "on all the time". The switch (relay) that turns it on when the door opens is likely bad. Play with the button ont he door frame to see if this problem is there.
Also, check if the light comes on when you unlock the car when the swich is in position 1. If light does come on when unlocking, you have a bad switch on the door frame (turns light on when you open the door when the doors were already unlocked). If you don't get light, the switch by the dome light might be bad.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Power lock and dome light does not come on when door is opened.

I had the same problem with my 2005 dodge ram 3500 and found the wires were being pinched that run through the rubber boot on my right rear door. I had this fixed by dodge but there splice didn't last, so I took some 16ga wire and spliced it into the wire that operates the power door lock on that side and it fixed the problem. Dodge service shop did a sad job of splicing the wires back together by twisting the wires together and tape and wire broke.

2006 colbat dome light will not work


Are you saying that the dome light doesn't work when opening the door? Or when using the dash dimmer control to activate it? Or both?
There is a position on the dimmer control of most vehicles to disable the dome light. Verify that you don't have it in that position. It is normally at the opposite end of the dimmer rotation from the position that turns the dome light on. If the light doesn't work from either the dimmer or the door switch, check the bulb. They do burn out. If you replace it, do not touch the glass of the new bulb directly when installing. They get very hot and the oils on your fingers will cause premature failure. If everything seems ok (dimmer/door switch/bulb), check for a blown fuse. Otherwise the problem is in the car wiring.

Interior lights dont come on when door is opened


check for a dome light on and off switch by the headlight switch or check to see if the dash light dimmer is not turned down the whole way. if those are good then check to see if the door switch by the hinge is not stuck

Hi
Locate the switch in the door jam and exercise it to try to make it worl.
Spray some lube in it.

I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not come on when I open the door. I have pushed the dome light button in and have left the button out still no lights when I open the door. Any suggestions?


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!

Dome lighting issue


Try replacing the bulb it really is east. Gently pry off dome so as to not break it and with all doors closed you should be able to remove bulb and replace it. The dealership will do this for about 150 US Good Luck

My dome lights in 99 Chevy express conversion van don't work when the doors are opened or switched on. The fuse is fine and the lights work if toggled individually but not when doors opened or switch...


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.
