In my 2000 Chevy Venture I can not solve the problem with my dome lights. When you open the door, the lights make a quick flash on, then off. When you put the key in the Ignition, same thing, quick flash on, then they shut back off. This tells me (and I verified) the fuse is not bad. And lastly, it happens again when shutting the van off and exiting it.
I can not get the lights to come on using the dash panel dome light switch at all? Has any one else experienced this? Any resolution? I had thought maybe the ignition switch, or dome light switch(headlamp switch)? It just dose not seem probable. The van has 92,000 miles on it and the lights have not worked sience 75,000, four years ago.

Re: Dome lights inop.
On all doors, it comes on momentarily, then off, as well as switch on dash, leads me to believe there is a circuit breaker in that circuit that's tripping. In some vehicles, they'll use these for power windows, and other circuits for some reason. Have you pulled dome light down & checked that light itself has a good ground going to it, and no bare wire or connector in behind panel that may be rubbing on metal ?

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.
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?
There is a dome override switch on it. I have a 04 Avalanche that the dome light didnt work when I bought it and replaced the bulb and itstill didnt work. ABout a month late I noticed a dome override button below the air vent on the drivers side ov he vehicle and pushed it. When I got home the light came on. Not sure what purpose this button serves, but look for a dome override button.
