Make sure your dome lights switch is set on door, it could just set for off.

It could be a short or bad switch. Check to make sure the switch on the dash that controls the light brightness is not cut off.

In my chevy Tahoe the fix was simple.Just above the dome switch there is a flat switch,looks like the housing for the dome switch. That's the on and off control for the dome lights.look carefully you will see the light symbol on it. push in is off push out it's on. Good luck.
