DOME LIGHT STAYS ON WHEN DOORS ARE SHUT

1 Answer

14,385

Hi CYRUS, I would check the dome light switch first. Make sure the right setting is being used. Normally it has 3 settings (1 - on always, 2 - on when door is open, 3 - off always). If the setting is on 2 and the problem still exists then check and/or replace the door jam switches. These exist in each door jam and switch the light on and off based on a whether the door is open or closed. Hope this helps!
