Switch at light should be at correct position, check for switch at door to make sure it is working

    Try the flat button above the round instrument panel control knob. It sort of looks like a switch plate but its actually a switch.

1998 taurus se wagon i have no parking lights and no manual. i think i may need either a new headlight switch? or relay. aswell dome light is malfunctioning when i switch relay!s any suggestions


Check the park light fuse before you condemn the headlight switch. Does the dome light come on when door is opened? Can you use the dome light switch on the dash to turn it on and off as well?

Dome lights will not turn off


There are a few possibilities. First, the Dome light usually has 3 settings on its own switch located in the Dome light case.
One position is full OFF, another position is by Door opening, and the final position is FULL ON.
If these settings do not help, then you must have a bad doorjam switch or a grounded wire. When the door switch is pushed in by the closing of the door, the plunger in the stem of the door switch is suppose to separate the wires.
If the switch is cracked within the door frame opening, the wires may not separate and break the connection. You would need to remove the doorjam switch and BEFORE you removed the wires tape something to the wires to prevent losing the wiring loom in the frame of the body.
Another potential reason for the Dome light staying ON is the headlight switch. Turning the light switch beyond the full dash brightness limit will MANUALLY turn on the Dome light. Check to see if the light switch is turned too far.

My dome lights stopped coming on when the doors are open, I can not find a dome switch and both lights work individually. I have a 2008 malibu lt and can not find a dome switch anywhere, what could be the...


Try the dimmer switch that adjusts the dash/gauge lighting. It should turn an extra bit that turns on the dome light. Also, read the Owner's Manual for info on the dome switch.

Your car should still be under warranty. The dealer should fix it for free.

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 lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

Dome light does not come on when doors open, but does when dim switch is rotated. The dome light bypass button has no effect on it.


All the door switches use the same wiring harness. It's an orange and a white wire. There is a switch on the dash to turn the dome and wheel lights off. If the lights come on with the dimmer, the whole harness is OK, so now check to see if that switch is turned off... or bad
