The dome light has a 3 way switch.
1. On all the time
2. On when Door Open
3. Off.

O = on all the timer
O (solid/filled in) = OFF
Picture of a door = On with door open

The middle position is tricky to find the right spot.

Sit with the door open and play with the switch to try and find the center "sweet spot"

If it never finds that spot - the switch is likely bad. (assuming the fuse is good)

if it is covered by a white plastic then inspect it carefully and look for slots where you can put tiny screwdrivers to pry the plastics off, then you can replace your bulb. just be careful not to break the plastic.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Look closely at the cover. You will see a small slot. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver, and pry it off. Very easy..

Have you checked your fuses? If it is not a fuse then take a flathead and gently pry the cover off, remove light and take with you to parts store for replacement comparison, replace light same way other came out and replace cover. Check your owners manual for specific fuse locations.

What will cause the dome light not to come on


Probably a blown bulb or popped fuse. Sometimes the back of the dome light can ground against the underside of the roof, popping the fuse. Start by replacing the bulb.

2006 colbat dome light will not work


Are you saying that the dome light doesn't work when opening the door? Or when using the dash dimmer control to activate it? Or both?
There is a position on the dimmer control of most vehicles to disable the dome light. Verify that you don't have it in that position. It is normally at the opposite end of the dimmer rotation from the position that turns the dome light on. If the light doesn't work from either the dimmer or the door switch, check the bulb. They do burn out. If you replace it, do not touch the glass of the new bulb directly when installing. They get very hot and the oils on your fingers will cause premature failure. If everything seems ok (dimmer/door switch/bulb), check for a blown fuse. Otherwise the problem is in the car wiring.

Ford taurus tss 2004 map lights work but dome light wont come on


It is possible the bulb in the dome light is burnt out or there is a bad connection @ the bulb. That is at least where you start. you will need to remove the dome light cover & wiggle the bulb while the door is open, or best to have two doors open to remove the possibility of a faulty switch. If it still doesn't flicker or start to work remove the bulb & inspect it to see if the filament is broken. If you can't tell best to replace the bulb & try again.
Please advise if you need more help.

How to replace interior dome light bulb?


1) Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.

2) Make sure the dome light switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.

3) Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.

4) Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel (oil from your skin will shorten its life). Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.

5) Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

If the bulb doesn't work, you've got a bad switch somewhere, probably on the drivers door.

The dome light does not come on when the doors are open. I replaced the light bulb, but it still doesn't work. What should I do now?


Hi,
where the door hinges to the cab [ where it open and closes] there is a spring loaded button type plunger. This is spring loaded so when the door is closed the 'ground' is not able to connect. When the door is open the spring fully extends and makes contact with the ground wire. If all other interior lights are working most likely the problem is in or near this piece. First check to see if when you manually turn on the overhead light and or other interior lights that the others do indeed work and the dome light doesn't. If this is the case check where the bulb went in FIRST - pull the new bulb our and inspect CLOSELY that the unit is also working properly - there is a small spring here too that makes sure the bulb is making good contact.
Between these two [ if all other lights are working] you should get some light on the subject.
Hope this works for you.

2005 Honda CRV dome light goes out, but not burned out


Filament gets fractured, possibly by vibration of the roof lining. I have replaced mine 4 times and while the bulb looks OK it is high resistance, buy a few bulbs and replace them when it occurs.

Dome lighting issue


Try replacing the bulb it really is east. Gently pry off dome so as to not break it and with all doors closed you should be able to remove bulb and replace it. The dealership will do this for about 150 US Good Luck
