INTERIOR LIGHTS DON'T COME ON WHEN SIDE

2004 Toyota Sienna

Electrical problem
2004 Toyota Sienna 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 71400 miles

When either the passenger or driver's sliding side doors are opened, no middle seat or rear interior lights come on. Very occasionally, the lights flicker and I can hear a noise similar to a contact trying to connect. Where would I look for this contact or switch that controls the interior lights? For reference, all lights turn on when I use the inside 'all lights' switch, and the light illuminate when individually pressed with the doors closed, so I know they all work


Thanks

Hi, Mtvan.

I also have the exact problem on my 2007 Toyota Sienna LE -- except that this problem only happens with the driver side sliding door.

(No issue with the passenger side sliding door).

Hoping someone can help us out.

Thanks.

Started having the same problem with my 2004 Sienna LE, except with just the passenger sliding door, which is electronic. Driver side slider is manual, and still triggers all interior lights to come on, as does the lift-gate door.

What gives?
