DOME LIGHT DOES NOT COME ON WHEN DOOR IS

1993 Toyota Camry

Interior problem
1993 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles

The dome light in the car works fine when manually turned on but does not come on when the door is opened. The care is previously owned and did not come with an owner's manual.

Thank you.

Close all doors.

Test:
1. Make sure the switch is at "Auto" or "Door" position.
2. Open and close one door at a time. Record the ones that don't turn on the light.
3. If only one or two doors don't trigger the bulb, replace the jamb switch for that door.

4. If all doors don't trigger, the problem may lie in your body control module.

I will try your suggestion. Do you know where the switch is located to position the light for " Auto" or " Door"? I can't seem to locate it at the dome light area. I can find the button that manually turns on the light, but cannot find a switch.

The switch will be on each door. Open your doors one at a time, and for a unit that resembles the photo.
