Interior Lights Don't go on!

Like the title says, the lights dont come on but only on the drivers side passenger door (sedan) ive searched but it seems people only made a thread when there drivers side door didn't work and there wasn't really a clear answer... can someone link me to the sensor that needs to be replaced? im guessing thats whats wrong thanks

Press the center button above you. If you hold it for three secs. when you turn it off, it will keep the lights off when you open the door.

Do you have any idea how lucky I was here just now?

Anyway, I hope that's all it is...let us know. In the meanwhile, can we sort of torment you?

That's nice! But I thought I called for torture. Come on...if this guy doesn't deserve it, no one does.

I already asked him if it was okay and I'm sure he'd have said that he understood that he deserved it.

No :rtfm: ? No search?

No I like turtles?

These are beautiful little moments at fanatics and I think we ought to treasure them until Jake finds out!

Is there a fuse for this? The light doesn't come on at all? The bulb? Punch it a few times? Did you try that?
