SOURCE: I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not

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!

SOURCE: 2004 kia sorento the dome light will not come on

The problem is the diode needs to be replaced. The dome light works in the "on" position, but does not work when any of the doors are opened. The diode itself is about half the size of a dime which you can buy from a kia dealer for less then $20. You don't have to disconnect the battery to do this.
1. Remove the kick panel which is right next to the foot rest on the drivers side and where the fuse box is located. You will have to pry open the door foot guard to get to the other screw for the kick panel.
2. right next to the fuses box there is a wiring harness wraped in black cloth like material or some type of harness cover, just peel it back or remove. You can feel the diode through the wrap.
3. the diode is in a sleeve like incasement or cover carefully pry open and slide the diode out.
4. replace diode with new one and your done.

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?

Interior dome lights wont turn on


Most LED lights are terminal specific. Meaning that there will be a positive and a negative side to the light. If hooked up backwards the light will not work. It will not hurt the light. Just reverse the wires to the terminals and all should be good. You are dealing with direct current and that is the difference.

No interior dome lights , vanity, or cigarette lighter


If it's where most silverado's have it, open driver door, on the side of the dash, there is a panel door, behind it are the fuses, there is another fuse block under the hood, a black box.
