    Default Interior lights Yukon 2008

    Hi,
    When I open my doors, the interior lights do not come on. The Dome light switch is extented.
    When I turn that switch all the way to the right, the lights go on.

    I would like to have the interior lights come on when a door is open. What do I need to do?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I'm not sure if i understand you correctly, but if you mean it wont come on when the door opens, check the little switch in the door jamb that turns the light on when you open the door. That happened to my moms car. easy fix

    the small "button" in the door jamb may be stuck in the "pushed in" position . you should be able to pry it open ... then i mite recomend shooting a little wd40 on it to make it slide easier...
    sorry this is kinda foggy

    Hi,

    The dome light override is off, in the default position. It does not matter which door I open, the light does not come on. In my Sierra, when I opened the door by remote, the light would come on as well. This does not happen either.

    What else could it be, is there a menu setting I might accidentally changed?

    thanks for all your help!
