Please check fuse #9 in the dash fuse box. It is a 15 amp fuse for the map lights in the headliner console. The lights are coming on when the door is opened which means the dome light circuit and fuse are good, but the lights do not come on when you press the switch which is the map light circuit which is fuse #9 in the dash fuse box.
