All these functions are controlled by the BCM - body computer ! The door ajar switch is an input to the BCM . Your problem could very well be a door switch , does the light work when you open other doors ? possibly BCM problem !
Interior, Courtesy Lamps Circuit Description
The MIRROR (Pontiac) or RDO/INT (Chevrolet) fuse in the IP junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the body control module (BCM). The inadvertent power control circuit of the BCM supplies battery positive voltage to the IP junction block. The IP junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the left and right hand courtesy lamps and the dome lamp. When any door is opened, the door jam switch contacts close and the door open input to the BCM is grounded. The BCM provides a pulse width modulated ground to the left and right hand courtesy lamps and the dome lamp for the theater dimming feature.
The IP junction block also supplies battery positive voltage to each reading lamp and the rear compartment (trunk) lamp. When their switches are closed to provide ground, the lamps will illuminate.
The dome lamp switch has three positions, DOOR, OFF and ON. When in the DOOR position, the dome lamp operation is controlled by the BCM. The ON position provides a ground for continuous operation. The OFF position turns off any dome lamp operation.
If the driver inadvertently leaves any interior lamp on, the BCM will turn it off in 18-22 minutes.
All chimes are activated by the Body Control module (BCM) by class 2 messages. Via the radio according to messages it receives on the class 2 serial data line. The radio sends the required chime signals to the radio amplifier, which sounds the chime through the Drivers door speaker. The chime will sound with the radio turned off or on

The chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

SOURCE: Removing doors from Jeep Wrangler - Dome Light Stays On

I have a 97, and my fuse for that is behind the glovebox. Open the box, slide the end of the strap to disconnect it, then remove the box. The fuse is marked. Something like "Dome lt. elim." I think it's located one up from the bottom right. This can actually be done without removing the glove box. For a more permanent fix, quadratec.com has a switch that plugs into the fuse location and mounts under the dash, so you can just flip the switch. Hope this helps.

Where can i find a dome wiring diagram for a 1998 chevy cavalier ?


Do your dash lights work? Check the dash light switch to see if it rotates to control the dome light, it may be turned off completely or the dome light ground wire may be loose. If not the wiring will run from the back of the fuse block through the body post to the dome light Good Luck

2000 chevy 2500 (new style) parking lights wont shut off


The parking lights staying on and the left turn signal not working may not be related, the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb, turn on the left signal and see if all the bulbs light up if not replace the burnt one, if they all light, the turn signal flasher may be at fault ( it can work with one side and not the other), as far as the parking lights staying on, check the door "pin" switch that controls the interior lights (are the interior lights staying on too?), since the chimes are staying on even with the keys on , I would suspect the door pin switch, probably the drivers side. I believe there may be a timer on the parking lights that turn them off after several seconds after the door is closed, this may be at fault if not the pin switch. newer cars and trucks also leave the reverse lights on for a while after the door is closed.

Interior light and radio not working


It's not a fuse, It is the internal wiring, the wiring from your dome light to your wiring harness is bad.. have you recently put in an aftermarket CD player?

Where is the fuse panel on a 2000 daewoo leganza, interior dome light does not work


Check the light first. remove the plastic cover and twist the bulb in its socket. Sometimes they get corrosion. The fuse box is under the dash on the left side, little slide out door conceals the fuses. there is a diagram of fuses on the panel door your slid off.

Interior lights dont work


Will it come on when the passenger door is opened? or at least when you turn the interior light on with the switch on the dash? If not it could be a fuse. If it does then the switch button in the door or door jam is probably the culprit. If it does not.. Then I would suspect a fuse... A broken wire, Or the dome light needs to be replaced.. Meaning the housing itself.. A test light will tell you if you have current to the light or not with the door open... Or find where the wire meets the assembly and test or pierce the wire and see if it has current at the wire... If it has current before the assy but not where the bulbs hot wire comes in then it's the assy. If it has no current before the assemly then check the fuse... then pull the fuse and test the contacts... If none if those contacts light up the test light Then you don't have power to the fuse for that light and your problem is behind the fuse panel or a wire going to the fuse panel... Start at fuse.... If it's good and has power to both sides. Then go to the light assy itself. If it does come on when the passenger door is opened then go to the button in the door jam... If it doesn't check the wires on the back side of the assy. It's a process of elimination... but do it in this order to find it quicker
