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.

My 2001 Bonneville only 1 window works the drivers side. I know all the motors are good . What could it be?


Terrell, some of the wires may be pinched or may have broken over time in the bundle of wires that go through the driver side pillar and into door from constant flexing of opening and closing door. I believe the master switch on drivers door is where the power gets sent to the other window controls. In the links below, some talk about moisture getting inside the plug to a controller for the windows. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do I find door switch on 1995 Bonneville?


hi -door ajar switch is built into the door latch inside the door. The latch latches to the B pillar. It may be this switch or a wiring problem, or a bad drivers door module (DDM). Remove the inside door trim and check the wiring and connectors. The wires from the door switch are tan and gray/black and run to the 8 pin connector of the drivers door module. By peeling back the plastic shield, you can get to the wires for the door ajar switch at the latch. Disconnect the 4 pin connector at the latch. Test the radio now to see if it shuts off. If it does, the door ajar switch is bad.

You have a dome light/door ajar switch that is defective, the switch is a tiny micro switch attached to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it requires the door panel be removed.

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.

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?

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.
