Dome light short

Installed aftermarket DVD/flip monitor. Connected constant power, door trigger and ground to the 3 wires in main dome light. something shorted and popped fuse. Before putting another fuse in I tested continuity and shows a short. Truck side of fuse is short to - on battery. When + on battery disconnected short is not present, when battery connected blows fuse. Wiring from fuse to drivers side block is good, block to overhead dome is good. When inserting "black" connector on back of driver side fuse block short returns. Keyless entry stopped working as well. Please help.

SOURCE: no dome light on tacoma

The dome light gets 12 volt battery power at all times. The door switch, when the door is opened, allows the current to flow to ground, and completes the circuit. The door switch allows the ground to be made. Measure for 12 volts at the wiring connector, and measure for direct short at the ground wire, with the door open. The Ground wire is white with a black tracer.

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.

Dome light won't cut off after door is shut


Adjust the dome light switch by moving the switch lever to a different position. If this does not work, either the dome light switch is defective or wires inside the dome light came loose and caused a short across the switch itself.

Dome light short


... Sorry to hear about this.
Have you checked all the fuses; to see if they are good?

I would start with checking all the fuses, the dome light bulb and burnt wires. (burnt wires will smell) If you didn't smell plastic burning while hooking up the DVD player, then you're okay. But check anyway.

If you can't solve the problems, call the Toyota service department for help. They may be nice and give you some help.

Good Luck!

How do I make my interior lights turn off without taking out the fuse?


The trigger for light is a return GROUND which goes to all the door switches and the light dome switch. so if there is a short on the holder or on the lamp return wire this willoveride the switches and the lamp will stay lit.
So remove the dome light and check holder and return wire to switches for short.

Negative from the dome light to one terminal on the door jab,and the other terminal,hook to,and run to the other door jam on passengers side.The hot wire from the dome light goes to the hot side on the fuse box.A additional light switch can be installed,to turn the dome light on from inside the car,by running a ground to the switch,and from the switch to the ground side of the dome light.

Dome Light (switched circuit now working) Shorted it out


Why didn't you hook into the entertainment system (radio ) ?
The one that turns on when the door opens is controlled by the BCM -body control module .You probably shorted out the transistor in side the BCM .
These lamps may be manually turned on by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door.
• The Dome Lamp
• The Rear Compartment Courtesy Lamp
• The Rear View Mirror Map Lights
The inadvertent power control circuit of the BCM supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp 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. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 or G403.
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 normally turn off using the theater dimming feature. The BCM provides a pulse width modulated ground to the interior lamps for the theater dimming feature. The courtesy lamps will also turn off immediately if a door lock command is received with all the doors closed, or if the ignition switch is turned to the ON position.

check wires for incorrect connection @ a short to ground if you installed an aftermarket radio its more than likely you connected the illum light wire to ground also check your dome switch & door pin switch for binding

Short ?


the wiring for the dome light, door ajar and radio is most likely crossed with the brake light wires causeing it to turn off power or on when pressing the brakes giving electricity to the lights and then it could be cutting off the power to the radio
