    Yep that's what happened to me in my 2001 S-10, I had a loose door jamb switch. I went to Auto Zone and picked one up for $11.99, and it fixed the problem and it's very easy to remove too.

    Relay problem maybe ? Try owners manual see it it gives you any answers.

    Do 09's have the dash button that disables the dome light for the door like the 02's? Not the dimmer switch but the one next to it that disables it.

    sounds like you got it turned off . Look at it again and check your manual. If not take it in and have your presidents people fix it under warranty.

    How do you remove the door jamb switch on a 93 Suburban? It feels like there are somw prongs on the back side, and it should slip out the front. No luck so far with this method. My 1976 had a switch that screwed into the door jamb. Thought I would ask before I created another repair job. Thanks.
