Question about 2008 Mazda Tribute

1 Answer

My 2008 Mazda Tribute front interior lights will not come one when the door is opened. I have moved the position to ON and it will come on. I have it set to the middle where I can see DOOR. What could be the problem. Is there a fuse or something that I need to be looking for?

Check the each door switch. manually push on and off the switch. observe if there is a reaction. if none, the switch is defective.

My interior lights come on at random, while parked and sometimes while driving. I noticed today that the alarm does not activate when this happens while it is parked and the interior lights are on.

Each door has a switch on the door opening that turns the light on when it is open, one of them is faulty or the door is not closing it.

My 08 Mazda Tributes dome light does not turn on when the door is open with it set to door

The switch in the door frame may be faulty, see if you can press it in and out, it looks like a small button near the door hinges, spray it with wd 40 to get it working again!

Dome light does not come on when door is opened

fuse blown comes to mind 1st but the door plunger in the door jam may only be sticking. look towards the drivers door while setting in the seat, do you see a plunger type button that when pushed by hand,does it go in and out with help? or does it stick? also check interior light and accessories fuse.
