Question about 1997 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Dome light I just bought my honda and I noticed that no interior light comes on a night when I open the door. There is an interior dome light with a switch that has 3 positions. The light works when I put it in the on position. Is that the same light that should come on when you open the doors? Any ideas? Thanks

The switch has 3 positions on/off/doors.....there is also a timer for the doors/ignition,so with the doors closed try to find the on,then the off then you know the last position must be the doors......

Interior of car is dark at night.


There should be a button inside the door arch, on the hinged side, that activates the interior lights when the door is opened, this button also turns the light off when the door is closed.
Find this button and push / activate it manually with your hand.
If the light is not turning on and off, check that the switch on the interior dome light is in the "DOOR" position, not the OFF or ON position. this is usually the middle position.
Check all the Auto door light buttons on all doors, you may find one that is loose (not springing back into position) this will need replacing as it could be the cause of the interiour light on working automaticly.
I hope some of this helps

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?


Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

No interior lights


There may be a dome light override switch that keeps the overhead light off when the doors are opened. Consult owners manual or see dealer.

Door ajar and interior lights dont go on when door is open


THE SWITCH MIGHT BE STUCK! OPEN YOUR DOOR, LOOK FOR A BLACK ROUND SHAPE BUTTON AND GRASP THE ROUND EDGES WITH YOUR FINGER AND PULL OUT AND SEE IF YOUR DOOR AJAR LIGHT COMES ON, ALSO CHECK THE FUSES AND LAST CHECK YOUR INTERIOR LIGHT BULB. GOOD LUCK!

Interior light is not on whrn doors open


Did you check the switch next to the interior light on the roof? Honda's have a switch position that turns off the dome light completely, so it won't work when the doors are opened or not shut tightly. There are 3 positions, dome light on all the time, dome light on only when door is opened, or ajar, and dome light off. I must say, I love Honda's, but I find this switch annoying!
