Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Are you saying that the dome light doesn't work when opening the door? Or when using the dash dimmer control to activate it? Or both?
There is a position on the dimmer control of most vehicles to disable the dome light. Verify that you don't have it in that position. It is normally at the opposite end of the dimmer rotation from the position that turns the dome light on. If the light doesn't work from either the dimmer or the door switch, check the bulb. They do burn out. If you replace it, do not touch the glass of the new bulb directly when installing. They get very hot and the oils on your fingers will cause premature failure. If everything seems ok (dimmer/door switch/bulb), check for a blown fuse. Otherwise the problem is in the car wiring.
