Icon5 Eternal Dome Light, How do I make it go out?

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?

Thanks,

Curt

Mine did the same thing, I just bought a new dimmer switch from the dealer. Installed it, and now everthing works like it should. I guess over time, that switch just fails.

Are you sure you turned the dimmer switch all the way up?

I cleaned my dimmer switch and it turns the dome light on and off and dims the lights like it's supposed to now. Any idea what keeps the dome light on?

Thanks,

Curt
