Recently my dome light stopped working whenever i would open my door. Ive tried sliding it back and forth and it wont work UNLESS i push up on it.
I guess there is a connectivity problem?

anyone have any suggestions? I took it off and tried pushing it up so it would connect, but nothing. Its really annoying not being able to see at night when i get in my car.

Thanks!

you could probably play with the wires untill you find the one or ones that are loose, then just clamp them back tight with some pliers or something. if that does not work you could try saudering the connections.

I'm not meaning to come across as a ****. Just saying, take it out and use steel wool to clean off the connections. Steel wool you can get just about anywhere and you get the connectors by pulling the entire plastic piece off.

Take the whole dome light assembly down

check all of the connections as there is prolly a loose one

dissassemble the dome assembly

check and clean connections make sure there are no broken parts

reassmble

it should work

dont mount it but test it if it works mount it then test again.

It is a loose connection
