Question about 2007 Saturn ION-2 Quad Coupe

1 Answer

Dome Light (switched circuit now working) Shorted it out

I shorted out the wires on the dome light on my 2007 Saturn ION (Installing a DVD player/screen).

The constant power is working, but the switched (the one that turns onwhen the door opens) is not working, there is no voltage on thatcircuit.

Where would I find the fuse for the switched dome light? (I've checkedall the fuses at the drivers foot area and they all look good)...Allother accessories appear to work, except noted below.

Also as a side note, not sure if it's related but after I tried allaccessories and locks and windows the rear window behind the driverwill not go down now, could this be related? I hear a click when I tryfrom the drivers console, but nothing when I try from the rear seat?

Why didn't you hook into the entertainment system (radio ) ?
The one that turns on when the door opens is controlled by the BCM -body control module .You probably shorted out the transistor in side the BCM .
These lamps may be manually turned on by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door.
• The Dome Lamp
• The Rear Compartment Courtesy Lamp
• The Rear View Mirror Map Lights
The inadvertent power control circuit of the BCM supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 or G403.
If the driver inadvertently leaves any interior lamp on the BCM will turn it off after a 20 minute time-out.
The courtesy lamps will normally turn off using the theater dimming feature. The BCM provides a pulse width modulated ground to the interior lamps for the theater dimming feature. The courtesy lamps will also turn off immediately if a door lock command is received with all the doors closed, or if the ignition switch is turned to the ON position.

A door-closed switch is failing 'open', I suppose. Most likely the drivers' side one (which gets the most use?), but it could be any. Replace that ******! (Ask for details at the Saturn Parts counter.)

Forgive me if I seem to be over simplifying, but have you have you tried rotating the knob to left of the steering wheel (below the a/c vent)? If you rotate it all the way clockwise, it 'clicks' and the dome lamp comes on. Rotate counterclockwise and the dome lamp goes off and you adjust the brightness of the interior lights.

2007 Saturn ION 3 door locks have no power, key fob has new battery, still doesn't work.There is also no power from drivers door, to locks.


It’s most likely a broken wire in the drivers door. With constant opening and closing over the years these wires break. It’s an easy fix to someone who is handy with wiring.

Dome light short


... Sorry to hear about this.
Have you checked all the fuses; to see if they are good?

I would start with checking all the fuses, the dome light bulb and burnt wires. (burnt wires will smell) If you didn't smell plastic burning while hooking up the DVD player, then you're okay. But check anyway.

If you can't solve the problems, call the Toyota service department for help. They may be nice and give you some help.

Good Luck!
