Dome light not working with door switch -

10

Asked by Jan 07, 2012 at 05:57 PM about the Ford E-350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I purchased a 2008 E-350 recently and realized that the dome light does not come on when either door is opened. It works fine by the switch, far left is off, center is on and far right is on. I would think the center position would be operated by the door button / switch but this is not the case. Can someone tell me how their dome light opperated?

Thanks,
Charlie

Thanks for your reply. I'm thinking it must be related to the switch at this point. I pulled the dome lamp and inspected the switch with a continuity tester and it works fine. There are three wires on the connector. I believe one should be constant battery power, one should be powered through the door switch and the other ground. The problem seems to be that two of the wires have constant power. Neither is controled by the door switch. I'm not sure if this truch has a delay off on the door switch that is malfuctioning or if these two wires have made contact in the harness. I ordered a set of service manuals which should have wiring diagrams. Thanks, Charlie

Hello, my dad just purchased a van just like yours, and is having the same problem, did you ever figure out the wiring for the dome light?
