    I have a very similar problem... interior lights ONLY work when engine is running. With engine off = no dome lights with doors open, no dome lights with manual switch, no map lights, no emergency battery switch that opperates windows with engine off. Door switches seem to be opperational. Have checked all fuses and relays except for "Auxillary relay box 2". Can not find the location of "Aux relay box 2" that lists an interior lamp relay located at "C20 22" With engine running, all interior lights and windows work as expected?? I'm out of ideas, any help would be greatly appreciated!

You require new door switches -they are availble in help section at most car part stores-note when you disconnect this old one -do not drop inside chassy-this is very bad. I am not kidding on this . No beer no friends ,no girls around get it done then get on to other things - I recomend pullin gswitch out tying a string around end that runs inside chassy -secure it -then remove switch. you may fine it just needs cleaning but I would just replace.Take the old one in to store as the size at base changes between brands .

I have a 2013 hyundai santa fe and the interior lights do not come on when opening the door. I cannot find a way to turn them on. A friend has a 2014 and my car does not work the way his does


Can you turn the interior light on manually? My 2009 Hyundai Sonata has two switches on the interior light fixture. One is labeled 'Door', and must be depressed for the light to work with the doors. The other switch is to turn the light on/off manually.

Dome lights won't work on my 2005 Chevy equinox


The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights


You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .

My 95 Ford Windstar has just developed a rather distressing problem. In the morning, I get in my van and everything is fine. A few hours later, when I get in my van and start it, there is a warning bell...


one of the door ajar switches are sticking. needs to be put on the computer to find out which one. only other way is to go around and unplug the switches until your light shuts off.

2007 Denali interior lights will not come on when the door is opened. They can be manually turned on though. Is this a problem with the overide switch?


If only one door does not make light go on, then door switch.
If no door works, then switch at light bad. The light switch has 3 positions: off, on, and on when door open.

Interior lights won't come on when the doors are open.


there is a timer on the interior lights to turn off after 20 minutes.
one of your door switches are bad,and it tells the computer that a door is open and the lights are turned off,that makes sense.
a way to test this is to undo the battery for a minute. then see if the interior lights come on. one of the door switches is bad

Interior light and diagnostic plug doesn't work


The data link gets it's power from fuse no. 3(20 amp) in the interior fuse panel,which also is the power for cig. lighter. This fuse gets it's power from fuse no. 103 in the battery junction box (50 amp).

For the interior lights the door adjar switches in the door send a signal to the GEM module.It then grounds the coil side of the interior lamp relay. The switch on the dash that you turn on manually also grounds the coil side of the interior lamp relay so that would mean that everyrhing after the GEM is ok.Are the lights not turning on from any door including the deck lid? If not then problem would have to be in the GEM module.
