Door switch fell in the hole, how do I get it out?

The dome light and lights on switch and wires fell into the hole in the frame and I can't seem to fish it out. How do I get it out? Is there a panel I can take off to reach it? I have a 2004 Honda Civic.

SOURCE: how do you replace the dome light on a 2005 civic

Look on the sides of the dome light and look for a tiny little notch in the plastic. Take a screwdriver and gently pry at the notch and it should just pop out

SOURCE: Honda Accord Map Light bulb

the cover is removed straight down, slowly working it with a thin tool or butter knife. WD40 to front and rear edge (there's nothing medial or lateral). The cover has 2 Y clips on each side, one about half way, and one that clips straight off of the hinge post. There are no "tabs". It will eventually unclip straight down. Then can replace with a DE3175 LED bulb (V-LEDs.com)

SOURCE: Driver side door switches are not working. Dome

My power locks, windows didn't work and the dome lights would not turn off after closing the door. I removed the black boot that was attached to the drivers door by lifting upward and pulling away from the door. A heavy gauge black wire was broken. I removed about 3/16" of insulation from both ends of the broken wire and connected them by using a connector that both ends are placed in to and then "crimped" both ends so the broken wire made contact with each other and everything worked perfectly! The hardest part was replacing the boot. Total cost to fix is $0.50.

What would cause the doom light fuse on my 2006 Kia Rio to keep blowing?


It is because there is a hard short to ground. It is either the wires have a short leading to the dome light, the dome light itself has a short, or the switch that turns the domelight on has a short. I would suspect either a bad switch or bad domelight if you have not messed with any wiring.

Just bought an 01 maxima and the dome light wont come on when the door opens. Furthermore, the light itself is a push-button light and not a 3-position switch which means it could be a replacement.


dome lights work by having a live wire down to the door switch ( (normally located in the door opening frame )
when the door is opened ,this wire is allowed to ground out and completes the circuit for the light and so it comes on
what you will be looking for is a wire disconnected at the light switch that will complete that circuit

My dome lights mirrors or door locks want work if i have my door cloosed but if i turn dome light switch all the way on with door open it all works if i cut my dome light switch off with doors open mirrors...


It's some kind of short. my guess either the wiring in the boot between the door itself and the frame/ body. or possibly in the circuit for the door courtesy switch, lastly the dome light circuit. if you have a test light, probe for a faulty circuit (grounding or incomplete)

Dome lights will not turn off


There are a few possibilities. First, the Dome light usually has 3 settings on its own switch located in the Dome light case.
One position is full OFF, another position is by Door opening, and the final position is FULL ON.
If these settings do not help, then you must have a bad doorjam switch or a grounded wire. When the door switch is pushed in by the closing of the door, the plunger in the stem of the door switch is suppose to separate the wires.
If the switch is cracked within the door frame opening, the wires may not separate and break the connection. You would need to remove the doorjam switch and BEFORE you removed the wires tape something to the wires to prevent losing the wiring loom in the frame of the body.
Another potential reason for the Dome light staying ON is the headlight switch. Turning the light switch beyond the full dash brightness limit will MANUALLY turn on the Dome light. Check to see if the light switch is turned too far.

No. my dome light won't shut off. how do I shut it off


Check the light switch on the dash and see if it is turned on for the dome light, if so turn it off and the dome light should go off. Check if the dome light it self has a on/off switch button on it. If this was not the problem, check the push button switch at each door by opening the door and holding the button in, if you have a delay light system on your car, you will have to hold the button in for awhile till it kicks the dome light off. If this did not fix the problem, remove each door switch and unplug the wire going to it, use a volt meter to check if the switch works on and off when you push the button in and out, if the switch is bad, replace it, you can buy them at a local auto parts store or dealer. If the switch was bad just leave the wire unpluged till you can replace it, this way the dome light should go out

1998 buick lesabre dome light stays on while driving and doesn't go off when I turn the car off


Open the door and where the hindges bolt to the body of the car you should see a push button type switch.Once you have located the switch, wiggle it to see if it still has a snug fit, also work the button in and out to see if it will turn the dome light off and on.If you can not find the switch, but you find an empty hole about the size of the end of your babby finger then the switch probably came lose from vibration and fell down inside. It will half to be retrived and reinstalled.Repeat for each door untill you find the problem switch. The problem is usually with the drivers door because it gets the most use.

Dome light won't come on when door is opened (switch in center or 2 position). Dome light does work when switch pushed to position 1.


Center is the off position. Position 2 is "on when doors are open", Position 1 is "on all the time". The switch (relay) that turns it on when the door opens is likely bad. Play with the button ont he door frame to see if this problem is there.
Also, check if the light comes on when you unlock the car when the swich is in position 1. If light does come on when unlocking, you have a bad switch on the door frame (turns light on when you open the door when the doors were already unlocked). If you don't get light, the switch by the dome light might be bad.

Good luck.
