How do I fix the dome lights inside my car? To turn them on I have to push where the light it but when I got my car they were already pushed all the way in. What parts do I need to fix it and how?

When I try pulling out the plastic part to the light so I can try to turn it on it just gets worse and I want to remove the whole dome light and try to fix the the inside altogether so I do not have this problem again and one side of it looks like the whole dome light wants to come off . I want to take it all out and fix it as a whole so I don't have to worry about it falling off.

My 2009 GMC Acadias dome lights are not working when I open the doors.....what am I missing?? I have read the manual about 5 times and followed what it said with no luck :(


Usually this happens when somebody pushes the wrong button to turn on/off the dome or map lights. On my car (not an Acadia) there is a button marked "Off" and another marked "Door." If you push "Off," you not only turn off the dome lights, you stop them from turning on when you open the doors. To correct this you have to push "Door." Not what you would expect a button marked "Door" to do, right? I'll bet there's something similar going on with your car.

How can i make my interior overhead lights to turn off


These are activated by little push in switches located on the door frame. When you close the door, it pushed the pin switch in and disconnects the power from the inside lights. You should also check the light switch on the dash. There is a setting on the headlight switch usually that allows you to turn on the inside dome lights by that switch. It may be in that position and will keep your inside lights on until the switch is returned back to the normal position.

How do I replace dome light on Matrix 2009


Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.
Make sure the dome lighting switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.
Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.
Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel. Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.
Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

No. my dome light won't shut off. how do I shut it off


Check the light switch on the dash and see if it is turned on for the dome light, if so turn it off and the dome light should go off. Check if the dome light it self has a on/off switch button on it. If this was not the problem, check the push button switch at each door by opening the door and holding the button in, if you have a delay light system on your car, you will have to hold the button in for awhile till it kicks the dome light off. If this did not fix the problem, remove each door switch and unplug the wire going to it, use a volt meter to check if the switch works on and off when you push the button in and out, if the switch is bad, replace it, you can buy them at a local auto parts store or dealer. If the switch was bad just leave the wire unpluged till you can replace it, this way the dome light should go out

My dome lights on my 1996 pontiac grand am will not turn off.


Has your Grand Am been in bad winter (dirty) weather? Locate the door accentuator on each door...these are located near the inside of each hinge...one for each door...You have the right part if you can depress the spring loaded push pin...lubricate each of these push pins thoroughly with PB Blaster, or WD-40...(both available even at Walmart automotive:) If all of these are fine...the dome light switch on your dash is bad...Hope this helps.

I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not come on when I open the door. I have pushed the dome light button in and have left the button out still no lights when I open the door. Any suggestions?


Next to the round exterior light switch is a switch that controls the brightness of the interior dome lights. You can push (detent) that button in and it will pop out to make it easier to brighten/dim those lights. The tricky part is that the switch for making the dome lights illuminate when you enter/exit the vehicle is actually the top half of the backplate of the dome brightness switch. It says "dome off" on the upper portion of the backplate. That one inch area - that barely depresses - is actually the switch to make the dome lights work with the door operation. Try pressing it and then opening your door. It should work. Good Luck!

Dome light won't come on when door is opened (switch in center or 2 position). Dome light does work when switch pushed to position 1.


Center is the off position. Position 2 is "on when doors are open", Position 1 is "on all the time". The switch (relay) that turns it on when the door opens is likely bad. Play with the button ont he door frame to see if this problem is there.
Also, check if the light comes on when you unlock the car when the swich is in position 1. If light does come on when unlocking, you have a bad switch on the door frame (turns light on when you open the door when the doors were already unlocked). If you don't get light, the switch by the dome light might be bad.

Good luck.
