    Thanks, I'll give it a try. Instead of disconnecting all the connectors I just swung the dash cover over to the side. Thanks Again!!!

    Interior lights won't shut off

    one of your door jamb switches probably needs adjustment because it is not coming into contact with the door; usually the driver's door as that one gets used most often. these switches can be usually adjusted to be longer so it contacts the door again.3_8_2013_5_20_44_pm.png

    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

    Interior lights won't go off after shut down

    There are switches in the door, check to be sure the wire didn't get broken otherwise it's most likely a bad switch there.

    Your interior light are controlled by the dial left of the steering wheel. It is s vertical dial and a dimmer for your dash lighting but also will turn your interior lights on and off. Turn it vertically until it clicks off.

    Interior lights stay on while driving and after the ignition is shut off.

    I would check your door jamb switches first, they are spring loaded and you can check them by pushing each one in and move your finger and they should pop back out without any restriction. When the springs are open your interior lights should come on and when pressed in turned off. Also be sure to check your console dimmer control/interior light switch as well to make sure it is functioning properly

    Interior lights wont go out

    First you can check your door adjar switches. Unplug one at a time to see if your dome light shuts off. If it shuts off replace switch that was unplugged. If this does not help your problem is the ignition switch. Thanks
