I believe you when you say the light is not switched in to the 'on' position. It's your car. Is it a double or single fixture? Your owners manual just says push switch or lens to turn on or off for 'room lamp'. It shows two different fixtures, a single lamp and a double. The double you push the lens. The single lamp type you push the switch button. Other than that, sorry, all I can find. Chapter 4 Page 80.

The service department just called me back for this exact same problem. The entire fixture needs to be replaced, which they quoted me at $200 and would have to order the part. No thanks, I'll leave the switch in the "off" position. (The dome light has three positions: Off, Automatic, or On. The light will STAY on for eternity with the car on, off, driving, etc. if the switch is in the Automatic or On position.)
