Ok here is my current ridddle.

Light will come on when door is closed, off when open. The headlight switch should be good, dims the dash and when turned all the way to the click will turn on the 3rd brake light accessory lights outside. BUT NOT the dome light (it will turn off at the click)


Door switch? Bad ground somewhere?

It looks to be an old problem. (Recently picked up this truck)

Went to replace what i fugured was a burnt dome bulb, and the light itself was dissconnected.

Re-hooked it up and discovered the problem (and likely why the previous owner had it unplugged)

I have to echo Gville BKO question about the doors. Does it happen with both doors? Does it look like the door switches have been replaced. The only thing I can think is that the switch was replaced with a normally closed switch as opposed to a normally open switch or vis versa.

thanks, I'll start following the wiring.

Too bad it's been 9 degrees outside for the last few days. I may just have to wait till it gets at least up to 30 again before messing w/ it
