    Dome Light?

    Hey I noticed my dome light doesnt go on anymore when I unlock the doors or open them at night? Is there a switch for this I might not know about? The the map lights do work though but only when I turn them on.

    The dome light switch has three positions: Always on, on when doors are unlocked/opened, and never on. You want the switch in the middle. Hope you don't already know this and think I'm an idiot. -Dan

    The switch is on the dome light housing. it is a 3 way switch like Yossarian said.

    Good luck!!

    Ok now I feel retarded, haha. I guess I never really looked up top. I thought the map lights were what lit up the car at night....

    How did you know the dome light was out if you didn't look at it?

    Well if no light turns on at night when I unlock the doors or open them thats tells me there is a light out. It was workin before. I just never realized the map lights were seperate from the dome light.

    well does the middle light ever turn on, like when u open ur door or when its swtiched to on

    if it does, then is sounds like u turned ur car into valet mode, check ur owners book to see how to get it out of it
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

    Do nudists have nightmares of showing up to class fully clothed?
