Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Are you saying only the passenger side interior lights and exterior lights work or do not work?

Is it also the back lighting for the instrument cluster and radio that are not lighting up as well?

Let me know,thanks Pete

OK if you're on the outside of the car the left front headlight and left rear taillights work not the rights act that's on the outside on the inside the only lights that seem to work are the little backlit stereo lights but the dash illumination and the odometer light don't work and rarely sometimes when you're driving down the road all of a sudden everything pops on shows the true knowledge your Dominar lights the speedometer works and then again shuts down

I'm in front of the car and I can send you pictures

Unfortunately I am unable to place a call on this here myself but others see you have requested a call and may still call on this here.I can however continue here.

Is anything after market installed like a remote start or alarm system?

If you can upload some pics here this could help just let me know.

Thanks Pete
