Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Toyota Tacoma and I am having issues with the dome light. When the truck is running, the dome light functions as it should. But when the key is turned off, the dome light gets stuck on,

I have check the door switches and both seem to work fine when the truck is running. But the light stays on with both doors shut when the key is turned off.

CHECK THE DIMMER SWITCH THAT CONTROLS DASH BRIGHTNESS. THIS OFTEN CONTROLS DOME LIGHT. ALSO MAKE SURE (IF PRESENT) THE MANUAL DOME LIGHT SWITCH IS FUNCTIONING

Testimonial: "Thanks. The dimmer switch did not have any affect on the dome light. The dome light in "on" works as it should. It just gets stuck on when switched to "door" and the key is turned off."

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times

SOURCE: Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when

The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

1998 toyota tacoma headlight buzzer not working, how do I fix?


The problem lies in the door frame then. You will need to remove the push button in the door frame and check if it is grounded. You should have noticed that your dome light also stopped working. This is because it doesn't know when the driver door has been opened. Therefore, no alert that you left your headlights on, and no dome light. Check wiring.

Will I damage or confuse the BCM (Body Control Module) in my 2011 Toyota Tacoma by adding an additional lighting circuit ?


you can connect them to your running lights,they just need to run off any power.doesnt matter where you get it from,but if you want them to come on with the lights thats what i would do.un less you power a switch an run the running boards from the switch.just more work that way,also you have to hit the switch everytime at night.

2001 Toyota Tacoma seems "boggy"


The best thing to do is go to Autozone or a repair shop and have them read the code. There are a few things that could be going on and instead of simply trying to replace items not knowing the true issue, the check engine light can tell you the problem. In the end this will save you time and effort to find the cause.

Temperature and direction fuse location


* does your cruise control work?
* do you brake lights work?
* does your dome light work?
The 10 amp IGI #2 fuse controls several other components including the dome light, cruise control, and brake lights.
A dim or dead display is a very common problem with the 05-09 Tacoma. The console is very prone to internal failure. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com
There is a bunch of useful info there. Drop me an email if you have questions, thanks!

Light has gone out on the console display for compass and temp on the 2006 Toyota Tacoma headliner. Trying to find out which fuse to replace


2005-2009 Toyota Tacoma Overhead Console Fuse test
* does your cruise control work?
* do you brake lights work?
* does your dome light work?
The 10 amp IGI #2 fuse controls several other components including the dome light, cruise control, and
brake lights. If these are working but the compass is dim, intermittent, or dead then the control module
has gone bad.

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.
