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.

2008 kia rio dome light doesnt work when door is open but works manually


You didn't mention if one door or all doors.
If only one door then most likely that door switch.
if none of the doors will make it come on, the see if you have a dome light control as my Kia can be set for all from switch near mirror.
Not thinking a fuse since it will turn on manually.

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!

2008 chevy express dome lights won't come on when doors are open but will come on with the switch on the dash


Dome light issues with Chevrolet Express van. Easy Fix
To the right of the headlight switch/knob, there is a square plastic base for the "dimmer" It has a post-like button in the center .. above the post is a switch - it doesn't look like one (it reads "Dome Off"). Press it in, and the interrior lights will come on when the doors open, etc. I just had my van serviced, and had to do this myself.

Kelli says to move switch for dome light to dome for door activation on '08 Sonata, but I see no such switch. Where is it?


That particular switch is on the dome light itself. It'll have three settings, Off, On, and Dome. Just like it says, the Off position makes sure the dome light never comes on, the On position makes sure the dome light is always on and the Dome position makes sure the dome light comes on when you open the door.

Entry lights not working


On most vehicles, the dome light has 3 settings,
(1) on always (your manual slide you are doing)
(2) On only when door opens (or the key fob pressed)
(3) Always Off

Usually the same switch to turn on (position 1) is a 3 position switch that allows for all 3 modes. However, I have a Buick LaCrosse (I thought a sister model), and the switch for control of this is on the left side of instrument panel with the headlight controls.

Check to see if you have 3 options rather than just on or off.

Malibu dome entry/exit light does not turn on when doors open.


My wife showed me that one- the doom lite in center of roof is 3 postision, slide it to passanger side then back to center. Its a poorly made switch but once set in middle the lites will come on/off with door openning/closing. Be aware it dims delays when going off, not immediate.

My dome lights in 99 Chevy express conversion van don't work when the doors are opened or switched on. The fuse is fine and the lights work if toggled individually but not when doors opened or switch...


Did you check the dome override button? It shoiuld not be pressed in, otherwise the lights won't come on with the door or the dimmer slide switch moved all the way to the top.
