    Hi, I'm hoping for some direction here, it's been awhile since I did my own repairs.

    1) Dome lights (both of them) do not go on with the doors, only by the dash switch. I checked the override button and it makes no difference. Door switches? New dash switch? I'm hoping someone here has had a similar experience and can share with me.

    2) Rear passenger power window won't move and I hear nothing from the window motor. All other windows work, so my guess is the button- I know this is the usual culprit most of the time. If it was the motor, I would at least hear something, correct?? Move a switch from another location and see if it works?

    3) Eventually, I would like to fix the drivers side heated seat- I saw a sticky but it was for 1999 and up, I have a 1998.

    Thanks in advance!

    How long have you had the truck or how well do you know it's history?

    1. The dome light I gotta think about. I seem to recall a similar problem with mine that resolved it self.
    2. Could be the window motor is bad switch or a damaged wire or bad connection.
    3. What truck are we talking about? I don't think the differences in the heated seat would be that great across model years.

    I have a 98 but electrical gremlins are the worst kind. Unless they make smoke, they can be tough to pin down.
