The first thing to check is whether the alternator is operating properly. A simple test is to start the car if you can and test the voltage across the battery. If the voltage is above the rated voltage by a couple of volts then I guess the alternator is not the problem. Keep the voltage tester connected to the battery and stop the car. If the voltage drains away below the battery rating the battery is at fault. If however the voltage is very high or low when the car is running suspect the alternator. Hope this helps.

On 97 dodge 1500 I cannot get dome or cargo lights to work with headlight switch and already tried another switch...dome lights come on when I open the door though

This means that the dome light is getting power and grounded by the jam switch. by turning the headlamp switch it has a detent position once there this should ground the dome light if it doesnot work the grounding wire from switch to body is loose or broken.

Dome light quit turning on

the switch on your dome light is more common problem.
remove the switch and inspect for burn marks and corrosion
clean and install
the switch will have 12V Battery power at all time.and ground from the door switch.
second ground will be on the switch and clowse the circuit only with switch to ON position

No power to sterio, over head dome lights, or Dash lights.

I think there should be another fuse for the dash lights and radio and dome (or interior or courtesy it may be designated). Recheck all of those fuses under the dash, I believe one has blown out. This is when a wiring diagram comes in handy-you can see the fuse lay-out, and what circuits each one serves.

Removal of front headlight housings on 96 camry


Shift the Camry's transmission into park and rotate the ignition to the "OFF" position. Apply the parking brake.

Insert the tip of a small flat-head screwdriver between the dome light cover and the dome light housing.

Pry the dome light cover away from the dome light housing until it separates and pops loose.

I was driving down the high way at about 75 and my power cut off i still have head lights and dome , i have no stereo no dash lights and when i turn the key its as almost like there is no battery in it...

It could be that since the column moves that much it could be that a connector came loose or a ground wire broke but it sounds like your problem is in the column.

I lost my head lights, dome light, horn door

sounds like you have a bad ground somewhere. Check every ground strap that you can find, make sure it's tight, and not corroded, etc. Sounds like the accessories are trying to find a ground, and going through the brake light to do so, thus burning out from too much current.

My interior dome lights flicker

Sounds like you have loose wiring or a short in the power door locks. Try looking behind the power door lock switch and work your way back through the door to see if there are any loose or bare wires touching on any doors with a lock button. A Chilton or Haynes Manual for your exact car may be found at a library or most auto parts stores, and they'd be able to give you the exact location and diagrams of the wiring for your power door locks. The dome light may be a loose or broken switch in the door that turns the lights on/off when you open/close the door, try tightening the bolts or nuts holding this switch to the door frame. Hope I could help.

Radio, dome lights and EVIC power problem

I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.
