    the bulbs are good and the fuse is also good. im thinking that the switch has shorted out behind the dash.

Only 2 things that can cause your problem. Burned bulb or burned fuse. Have you lost any other accessories in the truck? Cigarette lighter? Dash lights? Glove compartment light? Why I ask is because usually there are multiple things on each fuse. If you had something else not working then you could be certain its the fuse. Check the bulb if not. Hope that helps.

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?

SOURCE: Where is the dome light switch on 2003 neon ? The

The dome lamp receives power from the 10 amp micro fuse located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) on the M1 circuit. This circuit is HOT at all times. The ground path for the lamp is provided in two different ways.

One way is through the door ajar switches. Circuit M2 connects to all the door ajar switches from the dome lamp. The switches are case-grounded to the body. When a door is opened, the plunger in the switch closes, completing a path to ground.

The second ground path is through the headlamp switch. Circuit M2 is spliced in with the door ajar switches. When the operator turns the headlamp switch to the dome lamp ON position, a ground path is provided through the switch on the Z1 circuit. This ground terminates at the instrument panel left center support.

The time delay relay is used to allow a time-ON function for the ignition switch lamp. Power for the relay is received on the M1 circuit from the 10 amp fuse located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC ).

When a door is opened, or the headlamp switch is moved to the dome lamp position, a ground path is provided for the relay on the M2 circuit. This energizes the relay, closing the contacts. When the relay contacts are closed, power is provided through the relay to the M50 circuit.

The M50 circuit supplies current to the ignition switch lamp in the steering column. Ground for the lamp is provided on the Z3 circuit. This circuit splices with the glove box lamp, the ash receiver lamp, and the PRNDL lamp. The Z3 circuit terminates at the instrument panel left center support.

So, I would check the time delay relay since it supplies power to the circuit. Also, check for a good ground at the instrument panel left center support.

2008 kia rio dome light doesnt work when door is open but works manually


You didn't mention if one door or all doors.
If only one door then most likely that door switch.
if none of the doors will make it come on, the see if you have a dome light control as my Kia can be set for all from switch near mirror.
Not thinking a fuse since it will turn on manually.

I have a 1995 ford mustang and im experiencing something kinda werid if i let the car sit for more than a couple of hours my dome light doesnt work when i open the door but i can pull the headlight switch...


If you have a light control module then that is probably failing. However if the dome light is activated by small switches in the door pillars it is possible that the contact points may be rusty or have a bad earth.

Dome light doesnt come on when door is open


pretty easy to diagnose: power goes into the fuse for that circuit, from fuse to the dome light, and the door switches are wired in as an on-off switch. So, check your fuse, check your bulb, and if they are both good, then either your door switches are inoperative (may need cleaning, pull them out and check for operation. See if one of the wires is hot) OR, you have a short, a broken wire somewhere (least likely scenario). I hope you find the problem.

With the car off, when I simply put my key into the ignition the chime for the door being open goes off. With or without the key, the dome light stays on as if the door was open when the car is off or...


It sounds like a door ajar switch is broken. The door switches are located in the door on the latch mechanism. To get to it you will need to remove the door trim panel to gain access to the door latch.

The switch is available for around $20 - autozone part number SW1979 or SW3688

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

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 lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

It is not going to be a fuse, It is going to be your dome light switch on the dash or one of your door switchs is bad. I would start with drivers door, (make sure the other doors are closed) you can open the door and flick the switch in and out a few time. Push it in and let it snap out. (keeping a eye on the lights) If that doesnt work disconnect the door switchs one at a time. Dont let the wire touch a ground because that is what turns the light on. Make sure the dome switch on the light itself is not turned on. It is possible but not likely that a wire has come off of one of the door switches and grounded itself.
