There is one of three common issues that can cause this.

  1. The Lamp Dimmer for the dash/overhead lamps is turned to the Dome Lamp Off position. Many people are unaware of this feature.
  2. The door switch that activates the dome lamp is defective.
  3. The dome lamp bulb is burned out.
If none of these are the problem, then there is either a blown fuse or a wiring problem in the lamp circuit.

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

Doomlight stays on or will not turn on when door opens


You have a dome light/door ajar switch that is defective, the switch is a tiny micro switch attached to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it requires the door panel be removed.

Dome light won't come on when door is opened (switch in center or 2 position). Dome light does work when switch pushed to position 1.


Center is the off position. Position 2 is "on when doors are open", Position 1 is "on all the time". The switch (relay) that turns it on when the door opens is likely bad. Play with the button ont he door frame to see if this problem is there.
Also, check if the light comes on when you unlock the car when the swich is in position 1. If light does come on when unlocking, you have a bad switch on the door frame (turns light on when you open the door when the doors were already unlocked). If you don't get light, the switch by the dome light might be bad.

Good luck.

Kelli says to move switch for dome light to dome for door activation on '08 Sonata, but I see no such switch. Where is it?


That particular switch is on the dome light itself. It'll have three settings, Off, On, and Dome. Just like it says, the Off position makes sure the dome light never comes on, the On position makes sure the dome light is always on and the Dome position makes sure the dome light comes on when you open the door.

DOME LIGHT DOES NOT GO ON WHEN DOOR IS OPENED. YOU HAVE TO PUSH IN THE DOME OVERRIDE BUTTON TO GET IT TO COME ON. IS THERE A WAY TO SET IT SO THE DOME LIGHT COMES ON WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR?


The door switch needs to be looked at, possibly worn out, check other doors, if they work, then the driver door switch needs to be replaced.
