GMC Suburban K1500 4x4: In my 1998 Suburban, my dome lights

Customer Question

In my 1998 Suburban, my dome lights don't go off when left. It is draining my battery. What is causing this?

I would assume a door switch isn't closing. Open one door and press the door switch closed with your finger and see if the dome light goes out, then go to the other door and check that, too.
If it's not just the door switch, let me know and I'll look up the wiring diagram and instruct you on how to test the circuit.

Passenger side was not working. Is there a fix that I can do. Holding it in allowed switch to turn off
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
After shutting door I see it is working properly now

Sorry, I was out. So everything is ok now or do you need a new door jamb switch?
