Dome Light Question.

Recently my dome light wont come on at all? i checked the bulbs -- good. Now im puzzled.
Before it wouldnt come on when i opened the door, I had to turn it on.
And also my cargo light or whatever you call it doesnt work as well? Could there be a connection to both of them not working or just coincidence?


Thanks for the help.

Have you checked your fuses?

Take a look at your fuse diagram (in your manual) and check for a blown fuse.

Also, there is a sensor in your door that might have gone bad. Im not sure about the cargo light though.

I hope this helps.
