    Is there a switch to activate the interior lights to the door opening ?

    I know on the 3 gens before that they had a "dome override" which is my absolute favorite thing in the world... Couldn't tell ya about the newer ones though, sorry.

    So you have a dome override? If you press it, when you open the doors, it shouldn't go on. It also shouldn't go on when you hit your door unlock remote...

    I guess, my recommendation would be to check and make sure your button isn't broken, and that its connected properly?

    the button above the dimmer...

    look to the right of your headlight knob..

    the bottom should be foglights.. the top should be your dome light

    Got it! didn't realize it was a rocker switch as it barely moves when activated.

    Thanks all !

    My 07 has the same thing, for the past 2 years my dome lights have not been coming on when getting in and out of my truck, it hasn't bothered me until today. I started going through my fuses and looking at the schematic and everything was good. I decided to look on the forum and here it was about the switch, had my truck for almost 6 years and didn't know that the switch was a switch. Thank you GMTC and this thread.

    My brother's 08 Silverado he said the dome light was not working. I had to show him this. I told him to RTFM.
