I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

    After taking apart the dashboard for another problem I noticed that the problem that I was having with the dome light staying on corrected itself. It did turn out to be a bad dome light switch. If you remove the 3 screws around your dashboard faceplate for you speedometer and instrument clusters you will be able to snap the faceplate off that has the dome light switch in it. You can try to clean the relays inside the switch with contact cleaner or purchase a new switch and replace it. This should solve your problem. Mine has been working ever since I spayed it with contact cleaner. Good luck!

Alarm won't work the roof door do not light on accord 1994


Check the dome light override switch lockated on the dome light itself, then check the fuse for "CTSY Lights" and finally, check the ground attachment by removing the lens cover of the dome (roof) light, an removing the plastic housing of the dome light by either removing a screw, or simply prying on the sides of the plastic housing, you should see a wire screwed into the roof metal.

My interior lights stay on even with the doors closed and the dome override button won't turn them off either


This is a short on the dome lamp assembly. It is possible that the ground wire from the dome to switches is short.
remove assembly and check.

My dome lights on my 2008 Buick Enclave do not go on anymore when the car door opens. I tried to push the dome light override button in and out and it doesn't make any difference. They still don't go on....


make sure the dome override switch is depressed. The switch is located just above the rotating knob which dims the interior ligthts. The dome overide switch is located just to left of the steering column.

1995 taurus dome light and door lights won.t go


One of the door switches is bad. Try spraying wd4o into all the latches, sometimes this will free up the switches. It might take a couple of days. If it doesn't work you'll have to unhook one at a time to find out which one is bad.
