    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?

    Wife's: '05 SRR 2.5RS 5MT Sport Wagon

    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?
