Dome light won't turn off

Repaired the drivers side view mirror, now the dome light won't go off. I obviously messed up the sensor but don't have a clue how to proceed.

    I checked the headlight switch ( I was hoping). I'm pretty sure it is the door switch. I just don't know how to find it.

Check to make sure headlight switch is not turned to keep dome light on. If not depending on what you did to repair mirror the switch in the drivers door may be the culprit.

    Look in your door jams the sensor is really nothing more than a switch. It may have a rubber boot on it the switch is like a push button. The button is out when door is open and when the door is closed it goes in and turns light off,

2004 chevy impala review mirror lights won't go off


Those should be map lights and there should be a switch for them.
On some cars you can program the interior light control to turn them on with the dome light.
Check your owners manual.

How do turn on the light inside the sunfire aside from those reading lights on the rear view mirror?


  • There is a dome light switch on the dash. Turn it all the way to the right and it will click. Torn it to the left to turn the dome light off.

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.
