Does your dome light turn on manually? If not you may need a bulb. If the light works manually, be sure it is set for using the door switch. All that said, the door switch often fails because it has a bad grounding to the door post. Try improving the switches mounting. If you can remove the wire from the switch and touch it to a good ground and the lite works......youi need a new switch

06 Silverado interior lights don't work when open doors dome light work on switch can't find fuse


If the lights work on the switch then you have tested the fuse. The fuse is listed in the owner's manual. Is this problem true for all four (or two) doors? None turn on the interior lights when opened.

2005 chevy trailblazer interior lights don't work help me troubleshoot the issue


Most times it is the light switch when none of the lights work. Can you manually turn them on? This over rides the BCM. Interior lights are controlled by the BCM. Try opening the passenger side door, see if they come on. If so, replace the drivers door latch, inside the door. If still no lights. The BCM needs scanned for codes.

My new tucson's interior lights do not go on when the doors open.


If none of the door switches trigger the interior light then check your interior light fuse on the fuse assembly located under the dash.
This could have failed usually a 10 A fuse.

Interior lighting stays on


First check your dimmer switch to make sure that you do not have it turned all the way up where it clicks.This is how you turn on your interiors lights in many cars.Second,Make sure there is nothing jamming your doors open,even slightly, and making your interior lights stay on.Third,if none of these are the culprit,check your doors switch inside the jamb where your door swivels out.It may be broken or not operating properly.Check the wiring that is insid the jamb.Many times when and if there is a rubber cover between the jamb and the door,the wiring can break and cause a short.Which in turn grounds out and may cause your lights to stay on or not at all.Hope this helps some;)

Interior dome lights wont activate wh en doors


If none of the interior door lights work, check the fuse, and check the bulb. If they are both ok, then you may have a bad relay or switch but you will have to trace the wiring which is a pain.

Drivers door sensor not working. Electric fuel pump is not activated when drivers door is opened. Warning for lights left on when exiting car not operational


It's the switch on the door frame that detects when your door is open. VW's are notorious for this problem. It either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Definitely try cleaning it first. It might be stuck in the "door closed" position.

Door lights not turning on when the door is opened


Windstars have problems with door switches. The last owner likely clipped the wires to the defective switches because the lights would not go off.

Interior Lights


I'm not sure where the fuse is, but I'm pretty certain your door sensor is the source of the problem. In between the hinges on all your doors is a button that gets pressed and depressed when the doors open and close, this controls your courtesy lights, make sure none of them are broken, seized up etc.
