Dome light problems

Hi I have a 1999 dodge durango and the dome lights don't come on when you open the doors except when you open the drivers door or the back hatch thats the only time they come on so I was wondering where the dome light switch is for the back two doors and the front passenger door so that I can replace them or if there's a different way to fix it I would appreciate any help

i had a 99 dodge 2500 that did this same thing only the dome light only came on when you opened the passenger door. turned out the wiring to the switch on the drivers side door and wiggled loose, i reckon from off roadin and bouncin around. might not be the issue in your case since you have multiple doors it aint workin with but just somethin to take a look at. it was a quick and easy fix.

best of luck,

Let's put this in the Electrical section.


No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
