    I checked the fuse and all the bulbs are ok. i dont think its a fuse problem. We dont know when they will turn on again currently they are off. You never know when its going to be on or working properly.
    any other suggestions and could it be a problem with the alarm system malfunction. i know it has something to do with the alarm.

    hi,darklord1! Don't you think if one of the door's switch is shorten the light is supposed to fail from that door in particular and not from all the doors? isn't the light supposed to work when i turn it on from the main switch inside the cabin, even with the doors closed? remember they don't work in either cases.

    it sound more like a relay problem. do you know were that relay is located? i don't understand what the hood light switch you mention is located. can u explain a little bit more about it? can you send some type of illustration? thanks:pedritof

No it cant be the alarm system malfunctioning as it would have disable the car. Its not a fues else the problem would be persist.

This leaves 2 things.

The relay,
The switch (hood and door sensor).

I'm leaning towards the switch shorting out. There are 5 switches, 1 on the hood light, and the other on the doors. open your driver door and look at the side of the car where the door closes it looks like this
i have a nissan quest - darklord1_2.jpg

they are on all four doors, one of them is shorting out, open each door one at a time, ignition on, the lights should come on , if not, press and release the switchs rapidly until you find the one that turns the light on, Try cleaning he switch and if not, replace it.

In the mean time, set your hood light switch , from door to on or off , to make sure everything else is fine, Once the setting is on door and the switch is shorting you will have the problem.

    not really, each door switch are actually 2 switch's, 1 for that door and the other for the hood light. do if 1 point of contact is bad the other one still works fine. The relay is located in the fuse box under the hood. There is a diagram on the cover showing which relay is which.

HI, You have an issue with fuse problem or bulb. you will need find where the fuse box is inside the engine, by opening up the bonnet of the car, and locate where the fuse for bulbs are,and see if the fuse is still working, you can use a meter to read the fuse.might also be that the bulb is not placed properly or the fuse is shaking.

And also before you check for the fuse inside the bonnet,you will need to test the bulb also that is switching off if it's still ok,or needs to be replaced..

If you can do it your self,i would advise that you call an expert on this, handily issues with wiring in cars are funny sometimes.

Do a general troubleshooting .

Good luck.

Can you tape a coin or two onto the door at the spot that hits the light switch? If not, just remove the bulbs.

All interior dome light are out on 2004 quest, fuse checked are good


The interior light are controlled by the Body Control Module (BCM).
Check the fuse for the BCM. If the fuse is OK, then try to disconnect the car battery for about 10 minutes to reset the BCM. If resetting the BCM doesn't work you may have to replaced it.
