Question about 2003 Pontiac Bonneville

1 Answer

2003 Pontiac Bonneville, dome/map lights suddenly stopped coming on when any door is opened however, can be manually turned on with buttons? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Yesterday car wouldn't start thought it was the battery but wasn't, would only turn over once and then nothing, then just suddenly started perfectly, had battery, starter and alternator checked and all were working properly, then noticed interior lights not working with fob or doors?

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.

Interior of car is dark at night.


There should be a button inside the door arch, on the hinged side, that activates the interior lights when the door is opened, this button also turns the light off when the door is closed.
Find this button and push / activate it manually with your hand.
If the light is not turning on and off, check that the switch on the interior dome light is in the "DOOR" position, not the OFF or ON position. this is usually the middle position.
Check all the Auto door light buttons on all doors, you may find one that is loose (not springing back into position) this will need replacing as it could be the cause of the interiour light on working automaticly.
I hope some of this helps

HELP! Interior lights (map and dome) dim but do not go out. Fuse removed.


There is a short between the dome light and the door switches, this can be caused by something as simple as water damage. check all the wires and switches before you think it is the BCM.

1959 pontiac 2 door bonneville. how do you hook up the wiring for the dome light? two wires coming down from the light. driver side door switch has two terminals. pass side door switch has one terminal.???


Negative from the dome light to one terminal on the door jab,and the other terminal,hook to,and run to the other door jam on passengers side.The hot wire from the dome light goes to the hot side on the fuse box.A additional light switch can be installed,to turn the dome light on from inside the car,by running a ground to the switch,and from the switch to the ground side of the dome light.

Interior lights don't come on. 2003 Pontiac Bonneville


the short is either in the door switches or the dome / interior light fixtures them selves. I would check your door switches 1 at a time does the fuse blow immediatly upon install or when you open a door.

My passenger door has no power,my security light is on constantly


Have lost power to the passenger side door. Without power system doesnt recognize door closed because of no power to door ajar switch which keeps dome light on. Security light stays on because without power to rest of systems supplied by fuse it cannot tell if doors and windows closed to engage security features. Most common is for power wire to break somewhere near where it leaves to main body and enters the door.
