The dome light quit working. I didn't have time to check the bulb and did nothing. About a month later, it started working again. Then about 2 weeks after that, it quit working again. It hasn't worked for about the last 4 months.

The front dome light will not come on when the front doors open. I replaced the whole thing and it worked for a while then stopped working again.
