All doors there are drivers, and then OTHERS, (wiring)
its wired OR logic, so any switch grounds, it turns them on.
and is programmable on all cars. to have this on or off (features explained in the operators guide, lost that?)

CRV has 3 lamps
front dome
rear dome
and spots.
all of them are messed up? for all doors.
if yes, ITS programming. is wrong.

the rear light is directly controlled lamp to rear lamp. (hatch glass or gate switches.
and has a slide switch, off,on, auto.
the spots lamps are direct. on, or off
the front however is totally different and wired unique.
as you know the drivers door is unique, as it operates the
keys left in igntion, or head lights left on, mode. so if those work
right then the drivers door switch, is,, working......
the front dome
has 3 modes. again , off , on and auto .
Auto is the MCU , unit, the MCU sees any door open and the front dome gets input to the AUTO pin, and if in auto the lamp glows.
i dont think the MCU is programmable but do read the oper guide for that., i dont have one.

SOURCE: 2005 Honda CRV dome light goes out, but not burned out

Filament gets fractured, possibly by vibration of the roof lining. I have replaced mine 4 times and while the bulb looks OK it is high resistance, buy a few bulbs and replace them when it occurs.

SOURCE: 97 Honda crv dome light will not turn off when

you have a bad door switch usually located in the door jam if you are sitting in the seat and your door is open look for something that looks like a small button about the size of a pencil eraser it is possible the plunger is broken off so all you may see is a metal object with a hole, replace this if plunger is broken

SOURCE: 1994 Accord wipers won't turn off unless the drivers door is open

This sort of problem is most common in vehicles that have been in recent accident.Whats happening is the ground portion of the circuit has poor connection at one of the ground wire clusters.(honda groups several ground wires from seperate circuits into one connector that in turn bolts to the body.)what happens is where that common connector attaches to frame of car gets crushed in collision and or is left loose.One or more of these electrical circuits then continuously searches for its next route to complete a power loop,which is through the first ground in cluster that makes a strong connection to frame. this causes circuits to cross with each other.As in whats happening with your wipers and courtesy light circuits.unfortunately at the moment i dont have electrical schematic in ft of me for your car to be able to tell you exactly where that ground cluster would be located at.Most likely it will be located in the area behind headlights, behind inner fender liners, or along strut towers front or rear.But can promise that this is the culprit behind your problem.Good Luck,Joel

SOURCE: dome light doesn't come on when I open the dooe !

assuming that the light actually works, the problem is probably in the door jamb switch. does the door chime work? if not, there's your problem

Dome lights won't work on my 2005 Chevy equinox


The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights


You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

Tip

I have a 1995 F350 crew cab with keyless entry and the dome lights controlled by...


There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

Can't get dome lights on when door is opener even with override switch off?


The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights

The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
Important: If the liftgate is opened after all the modules go to sleep, the dome light will not come on. The liftgate ajar switch input to the BCM will not wake up the BCM once it has gone to sleep, so the dome light will not come on. Once the BCM gets an input to wake it up, from remote keyless entry (RKE) or a door handle, the dome light will turn on when the liftgate is opened.
If the driver inadvertently leaves any interior lamp ON, the BCM will turn it OFF after a 20 minute time-out.
The courtesy lamps will turn OFF immediately if the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or approximately 20 seconds after all doors are closed.
The courtesy lamps are controlled by the body control module (BCM). Inputs from the dome lamp switch and the door ajar switches are monitored by the BCM. When a door ajar switch is closed, or the dome lamp switch is turned to the ON position, the BCM supplies the B+ for the courtesy lamps.
With out a factory Tech2 scan tool or equivalent an knowing how these systems work ,you best bet is to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop !

Why doesn't the dome light manually shut off in my 2004 land rover discovery


most dome lights are controlled or actuated by a ground supply switch rather than a power supply switch therefore the problem can be in the switch at the door jamb or the latch mechanism inside the door or perhaps a bare wire in between the light and the door contacting ground.

The dome light will not come on when driver door opened. Door jamb switch is fine.


Have you tried a little squirt of wd40 or graphite in the door jam switch and then hand manipulate it a few times?

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?

My 2001 pontiac sunfire dome lights, and reading lights dont work. when i open the door there is also no beep sound. check fuses they seem to be ok. what else should i check?


hello,
is this problem only with the drivers door? or all doors?
if it is just one door you should check the door open courtesy light switch located in the door jamb (it will be in the jamb towards the hood only accessible with the door open) its a small cylinder shaperd switch that sometimes sticks due to corrosion. if its stuck the car has no idea the door is open. if it is stuck try and free it up with some pliers and lubricate with some wd40. another thing could be that the lights are burnt out. check this by turnig your dome lights on manually by turning the headlight switch (this adjusts your gauge lights) all the way until it clicks ...your dome light should be on if not repalce bulb and try again.
As far as the door ajar beep...do you have an aftermarket stereo installed...because the stock radio makes the chime throught the drivers side speaker...
i hope this helps

When doors are open dome light does not turn on


There are levers or switches inside the door jambs which are more than likely sticking.........try moving the levers and if this works shoot some lubrication on them and move them around a bit.
