work when door opens

2 Answers


Make sure your dome light switch is set to "door".


I have the same problem. Mine are set to "Door" and only the lights on the doors at the bottom work, the only time the overhead lights work with doors open is when I place the dial for the dashboard brightness all the way up and the automatic headlights are turned off. If they are on auto, it only works when the switch is turned on. Otherwise, no overhead lights.
