Re: no interior lights

Double check the fuse. I believe its the one that also controls your telescoping feature of your mirrors, as well as the underhood lamp.

Re: no interior lights

Sure there isnt a setting that disables the dome lights on "door open"?? My wifes Mazda has that option that you access on the dash display...
You might try and scan thru the owners manual looking for settings/adjustments???
Other than that, does this issue only arise with the drivers door? Do they come on with the passenger door open?
If its only acting up on one door, I would say theres something wrong with the door latch/switch, if it doenst come on with any door open, would be looking more at a setting or software issue. If you can't figure it out, unhook both batteries for an hour...

Re: no interior lights

yea light doesnt come on with any of the doors. even when you unlock it with keyless entry cargo and interior are pitch black its hard to see at night when you get into a dark truck.

Re: no interior lights

sounds like a setting then. My truck has some similar settings that can be programmed, like no interior lights when doors open, Interior light on when unlocking with keyless, headlights on when unlocking with keyless, etc.....
Has the truck always been like this? I would read owners manual carefully and see if it describes the correct procedure for making changes.....
Did you get a chance to disconnect batts.?

Re: no interior lights

I have that issue in my '08. It quit working after I tried putting in LED's in. I can't even turn the interior lights on using the dash switch. Heard there is some kind module that could have failed because it controls the auto dimming and you can't dim led's. Lights work manually though just like you said

Re: no interior lights

My lights work perfect after LEDs in the dome lights, and they dim... not sure what's going on with yours like they said check settings I've gone crazy thinking something was wrong before and just had a switch flipped or something.
