interior lights wont come on when the door is opened

Asked by Mar 11, 2014 at 10:07 PM about the 2008 Saturn Aura XR

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the interior lights have always come on when I open the door, now it won't.  I can turn on the interior lights once in the car by pushing the lights in the overhead counsel, but they should come on automatically when the door is opened

Have you tried tinkering with the door jam switch to see if you can get the lights to turn on? Many times they stick. And/or break. Sometime by tinkering with it you can get the doom light to come on or at least flicker. The door switch is in the side of the dashboard.
