The door switch is bad. Kia has a problem with these. I have owned three KIA cars and they all have switch issues.

I know this sounds silly, but did you try replacing the bulb? If the bulb is OK, try re securing the screws of the assembly to the roof, this is where the light grounds to the vehicle, but replace the bulb first, even if it looks OK, or do a continuity test to the bulb, that will give you the answer.

Have a 2011 Hyundia Santa Fe, the front map lights no longer come on when the doors are open. The two lights turn on with both "on" buttons. Can and how do you replace just the "door" button?


The bulb/bulbs are dead. Figure out how to get to the bulb. Extract it and take it to the store so you can buy the correct replacement bulb.

Message center in dash says cargo light is on , But is not and dome lights do not work at all


get your owners manual out and make sure that your dome light and cargo light switches are in the proper position. there are usually 3 positions, always off, always on, and on when door open. then make sure that your bulbs are good. if you can do this then you are in the top 10% of the mechanically gifted and should consider a new career through MIT.

now if the switches are all in the proper, on when door open, position and the bulbs are good then you have a bad push button switch for the cargo door. this is in the door jamb somewhere and merely unscrews or pops out with a little sideways pry. 90 percent of the time the light switch is in the always off position so replacing the switch or bulb will get you nowhere.

Why doesn't the dome light go on when door is opened


Get your owners manual out and find the instructions for the interior light. You will find it has three settings: always off, always on, and on when the door is opened. Make sure the bulb is good by moving switch to always on, then move it to on when door opened. if it does not come on at all you need a new bulb. if it comes one with one door but not another then you need to replace the button switch in the door jamb. Should still be under warranty though so call a dealer before you spend any money.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

Dome lighting issue


Try replacing the bulb it really is east. Gently pry off dome so as to not break it and with all doors closed you should be able to remove bulb and replace it. The dealership will do this for about 150 US Good Luck

2004 PT Cruiser dome light doesn't work


If there is a switch on the dome light, that may be your problem. You would need to remove the assembly and check for voltage coming into the switch using a voltmeter with the door open.
