I have a 1998 4cyl/5spd and the dome light was removed when I bought the trick. Of course when I hooked it up it has mostly always been on. Once it switched off when I drove off at night.
Now I know about those door switches and took both of mine out to check them. They are clean and work good and I unplugged both of them while I had them out. The dome light was STILL on.
I tried turning the dash dim control to see if there is a switch for that light, but can't find any. The dimmer works, just no switch.
Is there a switch somewhere hidden? Any ideas what to try?
