You have a bad door switch on the drive's door - replace it.
more then that you may have a short in the wires coming from the car frame to the door itself, but try the switch first.

Interior light delay


Same for both doors? If not, I'd check the switch(s) on the drivers door (may be more than one), or may be just one that has multiple contacts and the ones for the lights may be faulty.

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

Headlights do not go off so battery went dead. Also dome light does not respond to drivers door


Never rely on the door switch to shut off the lights.
That is always an extremely unreliable system on any car.
Whenever you shut a car off, turn off everything. That includes radio, AC, fan, etc. Otherwise you are putting a great strain on your battery when you next try to start it.

I have a 2007 clssic body style GMC sierra crew cab and i am having problems with the radiop speakers going in and out also the chime on seat belt warning and overhed dome lights not coming on and coming...


Okay, your truck doesn't have a demon living in it! It does however, have one or two broken wires on the drivers door for sure, and possibly the passenger door as well. Start with the drivers door. You want to carefully inspect each wire in the rubber boot going from the door over to the cab body. If you jiggle the boot you'll see what I mean. The chimes work thru the radio and speakers and that is why both stop working. This may have to do with the dome light as well but, I think it has a seperate wire. This is a very common problem on GMC pick-ups and Medium Duty trucks. You may have to remove the door panel to see what color the speaker wires are in order to trace them. Also, the insulation on the damaged wire may not be broken, just the wire inside. If you can't locate the break, remove both the door panel and the kick panel next to the park brake and run new wires. Starting from about two inches back from the speaker connector, thru the door, thru the boot, and far enough into the kick panel area to give enough wire length to splice them in, 2 or 3 inches back from the main harness connector. There are a lot of wires there so make double sure you match the color before you go snipping wires! The dome light wire is black or black with a white stripe, and the speaker wires may be tan and gray. Make sure to match the speaker polarity with the new wires!
Hope this helps.

The dome light on my 2005 GMC Truck will not come on when you open left or right doors. All fuses are good. The radio does repond with the door opening.


Hello there:
If you look in your owners manual you will find out that there is settings that are set by the steering wheel to turn on and off these features ok?
best regards michael

4 wheel drive gmc sierra 1500 1993. the cigarette lighter, radio and inside cab light suddenly don't work. is there a relay or fuse in engine compartment i could look at?


your fuse panel is either under the dash by the drivers left knee or on the side of the dash where it meets the door. the radio fuse should be the second from the top right side of the fuse panel. its a 10 amp fuse. the power for the switch should be a 16 gauge wire run from the passenger firewall (under hood.) behind a plastic cover where a lot of wires are bolted to posts. that red wire feeds power to almost everything in the cab. it runs behind the glove box and has a disconnect there. if the fuse is not bad and the wire looks good, check the ground on the passenger door "open switch" (the one that is supposed to turn on the dome light. that is where the whole system is grounded for the int. lights lights
