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.

Interior lights flicker all the time. The auto door lock is only half the time.


Sounds like a Body Control Module or a PCM issue. Allcomputer resources in Miami does a new one to your vin 200.00

Interior lights


The interior dome lights are activated by the door switches, as well as the light control switch. It is possible to have a defective door switch , and that would not allow power thru the circuit. The fuse would be the logical starting point to check first, then the door switches next.

Flickering lights on 2004 gmc sierra. alternator changed


Hi J, The ground connections are on each of the units. that is to say there is one power feed to the dome and another to the instrument panel. From there each door is separately grounded via each of the door switches. If one is rusted, contaminated or damaged and not operating correctly, it will cause the dome light and the door warning on the instrument panel to flicker. regards John

My interior lights flickers when I hit a bump in the road or just sitting still. What causes this?


I would replace the light switch, but first I would have a confederate
go around and jiggle all the door jamb switches while I observed the dash lights. Something is loose, often the brightness control for the dash lights is the culprit.

While driving the door adjacent light keeps coming on also the dome light. it flickers on and off untill u hit a bump in the road and then it will turn off, for a while.


the switch in the adjacent door isnt fully depressed,this could be caused by the doorlatch being worn or mal adjusted also wear on the actual switch.Firstly find the switch on the door that shuts measure it and make sure the one on the side thats causing the problem is the same length(not worn or broken) and springs in and out ok,if damaged or worn in any way change it.If its ok try adjusting the door catch which is mounted on the body with the door open,move it towards the outside slightly and retighten.if it cant be adjusted then the adjustment will be on the lock mechanism on the door, slacken the retaining bolts and move towards the the car, retighten and retry ,dont go crazy with adjustment ,Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!

My interior light no longer come on when the door is Open


I am not real sure about this but my 2001 Blazer has this option. Right by the headlight switch is a button called the dome over-ride and if this is activated the interior domes will not work. Try that and if this is not the case let me know and I will look farther into it.
