2005 Honda CRV dome light goes out, but not burned out

When I open the dome light cover and adjust bulb it comes on again. Dome light in my 2004 CR-V was intermittent for a while. Now doesn't come on at all. Bulb and fuse look OK. I used electronic cleaner on the switch and checked the wiring. Still no light. When problem started light would come on with passenger doors open but not the drivers door.

    Dome light comes on occasionally but lately not at all. At first I thought bulb was burned out so bought new one and it worked for about 3 weeks and now is out again. My CRV is a 2006.

Filament gets fractured, possibly by vibration of the roof lining. I have replaced mine 4 times and while the bulb looks OK it is high resistance, buy a few bulbs and replace them when it occurs.

Dome light is out on 2005 CR-V.

Take a look at both the door switch and the dome light switch.

Jiggle the switch on the passenger's door and see if the interior light
flashes. Spray some silicone in it if it's sticking. Single phillips
screw will remove it if you want to look at how simple the mechanism is.

97 Honda crv dome light will not turn off when

you have a bad door switch usually located in the door jam if you are sitting in the seat and your door is open look for something that looks like a small button about the size of a pencil eraser it is possible the plunger is broken off so all you may see is a metal object with a hole, replace this if plunger is broken

Help changing dome light bulbs in 2005 Accord

This is a real pain, took me forever to find mine... there is a little TINY slot that you can fit a VERY small flat head screwdriver in to pop it off.

Dont worry, the plastic is durable, just try to use a precision screwdriver if you have one and basically pry it open. it really will just Pop off once you get in there

2005 Honda CRV dome light goes out, but not burned out

Without seeing it, I would guess that you have a problem with clean contacts. Especially in cars with smokers, the contacts of something like a fuse or a light bulb can become corroded just enough to stop the light from working. Wiggling it scrapes away the debris and allows for contact. I suggest that you take some steel wool and lightly scrub the contact points on both the light and the fixture. **Be sure to have all the doors closed so you dont short out the steel wool.** If you are concerned with the abrasive nature of the steel wool, a pencil eraser will sometimes work just as well. Either way, it just sounds dirty which is par for any car. Good luck!

No head light alarm

I'm not sure what your cruise control problem is but your alarm problem may be the dome light switch for the drivers door. The switch is used by the alarm to determine that the door is open. Does the dome light come on bright when the door is opened? If not, try wiggling the switch (behind round rubber boot on the door post). If this works you can remove the switch by pulling up the rubber cover and unscrewing the bolt and carefully pulling the switch and wiring out. If wiggling the switch didn't work, you can check the wiring by grounding the wire to the switch, it should illuminate the dome switch brightly. If so, a new switch is about $10 at your dealer.

Sitting in the backseat, look at the dome light lens cover on the back side, nearest to you. There should be two small notches. Take a small flat blade screwdriver and carefully pry to the cover off. Bulb is then easily accessible and can be replaced.
