Most dome light covers (if rectangular) press in on the long sides to release the holding tabs . If round it push up and turn as the tabs may be in grooves.

I don't know for sure but some cars have a "DOME OVERRIDE" button usually somewhere the light switch on the dash. Not seeing your car the dome covers mostly require only slight pressure on either of the longer sides to remove, press against the side and at the same time pull downward.

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?


Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

How to replace interior dome light bulb?


1) Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.

2) Make sure the dome light switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.

3) Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.

4) Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel (oil from your skin will shorten its life). Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.

5) Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

If the bulb doesn't work, you've got a bad switch somewhere, probably on the drivers door.

I just bought a 1997 Pathfinder and the interior light doesn't come on when the door is open. All other interior lights seem to work. Would it just be a bulb that needs replacing. I'm assuming the switch...


yes it could be the bulb is just blown remove it and check that the filaments are still 2gether if they are fine it will be the fuse its usually in the group of fuses under your hood the fuse will be labeled dome or dome light this is the interior light it has its own separate fuse replace the fuse there are usually spares on the inside of the fuse box cover but make sure it is the same as the one that is blown

Door open light switch problem


First check to see if voltage is actually going to the bulb at the "dome" light etc. when you open the door... Then check to see if you have proper ground at dome light.. If not check wiring harness to the switches at door usually located in the door jam area.... remove switcvh and inspect for missing wires that go to the dome light some times the dome light is connected to a switch on the dash check this first....basics always first, fuses and connections then fallow the wire as a last resort..
