dome light

Would anyone know a reason to why my dome light wont turn on when its on "door" and open the doors but it lights up when I switch it to "on"? My lights on my door panels don't light up when I open my doors either. .

Your door pins can be bad. They allow the dome light to turn on. On your dash does your indicator lights turn on when you open a door?

do the door ajar indicators operate in the dash...like when the cars on or running and you open the door(s)? if not theres little switches in the door jamb, they need cleaned (pretty easy) or replaced.

yeah but its not pins. theres a little L shaped switch in the door jambs of all the doors sorta near the strike plate. it just slides in and out when the door shuts and opens. one screw holds it in, one wire is all that comes off it. theres probably just some grime/oxidation in it, its basically 2 pieces of metal inside some plastic with a little spring. mine were sticky and grungy; took a whole 10 minutes to sort it out.

I do have a DIY guide on cleaning and restoring the door sensors in my signature should it be relevant to you !

The facebook page gets dumber by the day. I just like how easy it is to post a picture. Wish it was that easy on here.
