JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?

JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: This happened once last yr. I took it in & it never stayed on for mechanic to ck reason why. I had a neighbor try to ck the fuses but he could not get them. Last time I had to unhook cable to battery so it would not drain but now opening hood is a challenge

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The problem you are describing with the dome lights can be caused by any of the following.

  • Body Control Module (BCM)
  • Shorted Door Handle Switch
  • Shorted Remote Function Actuator Module
  • Shorted Wiring
    In order to determine the cause you are going to need to do some testing. I have enclosed the test steps in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.

    See the wiring diagram for reference in this link.
