Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.com.

The first thing to check is for a bad fuse. Here are a few general links that discuss fuses and the replacement process and how to check them:

Now, there is an interior lighting fuse that we need to check first. It is located in the instrument fuse panel. The instrument panel fuse block is located at the right end of the instrument panel, on the passenger side of the vehicle. Open the front passenger's door, and remove the cover, to access the fuse block.

Once you locate the fuses, identify fuse number 5 and check it. I have attached two pictures. The first is what the fuse panel looks like, and the second picture is a fuse legend which shows what each fuse and it's purpose. I only supplied part of the list because it is very long. You will see fuse 5 is for interior lighting. The first link I provided shows how to check, remove, and replace a fuse.

Do this first and let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
