Smile Dome Light

I have a new 2009 Cobalt LS Coupe with only 2700 miles so far. The dome light does not seem to be working. The ownwers manual tells me that it should shut off within 20 seconds if I have it in the right on position. When I set it for the door position it just stays on does not shut off.

Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

it should shut off, mine stays on for close to 40 seconds after I close my doors...maybe there's a bad connection or something

the dome light will stay on for a long time if you just shut your doors and not lock it. but if you shut them and then lock it and make your car honk, then it goes off within 5 seconds.

are you sure you have it set to the middle setting and not all the way to the right?
