in Lenexa, KS on April 11, 2009
The indoor lite will not come on when I open the drivers door but does come on when I open the passenger door. What's the problem?

The fact that the light works off the other door shows the bulb and circuit is OK. The electrical switch that operates the interior light from the driver's door. is located at the rear of the driver's door jam half way up the door opening. It has a black rubber boot over it remove the boot and try tightening the screw and operating the switch by hand fully on and off ten or fifteen times and see if the light then works. If not the switch is probably defective. Remove the switch, don't let the wire fall back into the hole. Ground the wire see if the light works if it does the switch is defective.
