If you play with door switch on dome light you can get it to work intermittently. Sounds like a short or a wire is loose?

You will need to remove the switch... then test it.
Most likely the switch has failed.

I can't turn the dome light off in my Hyundia 2007 Santa Fe, why?


Pull the light bulb. It's easier and it won't disable any other circuits.
Really. The fuse may also power your tail lights, or dash lights, etc.
Sounds like the problem is in the dome light fixture itself.

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.

the switch on your dome light is more common problem.
remove the switch and inspect for burn marks and corrosion
clean and install
the switch will have 12V Battery power at all time.and ground from the door switch.
second ground will be on the switch and clowse the circuit only with switch to ON position

I installed running boards on my 2010 hyundai santa fe with a light kit. Can you tell me where to connect the wires so the lights come on when i open the doors,and where these wires are located. Thank...


When you open the door there is a door jam switch located near the door hinge. This switch is spring loaded and completes the circuit when the door is open turning on your interior/dome lights. If you have your running board lights ran together or in parallel as you should you could either tie them in to the driver's side or both driver and passenger side if that is your preference. You would need to route them in a way where they would not be pinched or damaged in any way when the door is opened or closed which could cause a short and possibly other problems as a result

Dome lights don't come on when you open the doors but light works when you push button on dome.


The dome lamp has a switch that can be put into several positions. "Door" "Off" and "On" If you want the light to come on when you open the door then you must have the switch in the "Door" position.
The "Off" position will only let the dome lamp work when you override it with the dash control and the "On" position will leave the light on at all times - door open or not.

Kelli says to move switch for dome light to dome for door activation on '08 Sonata, but I see no such switch. Where is it?


That particular switch is on the dome light itself. It'll have three settings, Off, On, and Dome. Just like it says, the Off position makes sure the dome light never comes on, the On position makes sure the dome light is always on and the Dome position makes sure the dome light comes on when you open the door.

Dome lights intermittently flash on and off in a 1996 Jeep


If it has automatic or a domelight that stays on for a while after you shut the door is on a timer relay and that is probably getting bad. As far as the door ajar message there is a switch in the door jam, look and see if you see it. Take wd40 and try to soak the switch try to get it inside the switch.If its incorporated in the door latch spray back inside the door latch real good. Open and close the door several times and see if it works then.
