Does the light work if you switch it to on? If so try to open other doors and see if the light comes on. Remove the bulb and see if it is blown?

SOURCE: 2004 Pontiac Vibe remote lock on driver door malfunctioning

notorious done if before, remove the door panel. BE CAREFUL WITH BEAUTY CAPS, CAN BE EASILY BROKEN (PLASTIC) when you remove the door panel go ahead and closed the driver door and activate the door lock button. you will see the bracket is either loose or it off. it looks the a coat hanger when you stretch it out. Reconnect it and lithium grease, test it and its a wrap.

SOURCE: The battery in my 2006

The 2006 Vibe no longer has that feature. It was discontinued after 2005. I have the 2005 so I know how to change it. If your 2006 is able to change then here are the directions from my 2005.
Programmable Automatic
Door Locks
If you have an automatic transaxle, your vehicle is equipped with an auto door lock/unlock feature which enables you to program your power door locks.
Your vehicle left the factory programmed to Mode 4.
The following is a list of the available programming options:
Mode 1: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. There is no automatic door unlocking.
Mode 2: No automatic door locking or unlocking.
Mode 3: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the shift lever is moved to PARK (P) with the ignition on.
Mode 4: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or to LOCK.
To change the mode you are in, do the following:
1. Set the interior lamp control dial to the door position.
See Interior Lamps Control on page 3-16.
2. Move the shift lever into PARK (P) and close all doors and liftgate.
3. Turn the ignition to ON.
4. Within five seconds after the ignition is turned to ON, press and hold the power door lock switch in
the lock position for about five seconds.
5. The interior lamp will flash to indicate that the mode has been changed. For example, if the lamp flashes once, the function has been changed to Mode 1.
If the battery is disconnected or run down, the mode is changed to the initial mode which is Mode 4.

SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.

How do i reset power door settings 2006 pontiac vibe


While I have not had this problem with my 2006 Pontiac Vibe, I had the same problem you describe on my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Unfortunately, the solution is to replace the module in the door panel. I was able to purchase the part at a much lower price on ebay than a dealership, about 1/4th the price. However I had a professional mechanic do the replacement because removing a door panel can be tricky to do without damaging it.

2006 pontiac vibe brake light


All the lights stopping at the same time is not likely a fuse, it would be the brake light switch, the brake light switch is over the brake pedal near top of brake pedal arm under the dash. To test take a 12 volt test light ($5.00 at any auto parts store) and see if both side of the switch light the test light when the brake pedal is pushed, one side is hot with 12 volts without pushing the brake pedal down. The fuse location is in the owners manual but I am 99% sure that isn't the problem.

2009 Pontiac Vibe. Tonight my interior light


there is a side switch on the dome light it has 3 positions

if both the switch and the dimmer are ok
then you have a short some were in that circuit
depending on the mileage it should still be under warranty
