    dome light stopped working...9 months ago

    When I visited the dealership to look at the car I was getting, in December of 2014, the dome light wasn't working.
    I pointed it out and the salesman said the service department had to "program" the vehicle. I didn't understand how much "programming" a simple dome light needs, but I wasn't going to bother asking.

    The light worked when I bought the car, it started working intermittently 1-2 months later, and completely stopped within 3 months of purchase.

    It's not the fuse and it's not the bulb.

    Can someone please shine a light on this issue?

    Thank you,

    First thing I'd do is get up there with a multimeter and see what kind of power you are getting to the bulb socket. I have had bulbs that looked good but were bad.

    If it went from good to bad to worse, then I'd let the dealership figure it out if it's still under the 5/60 warranty.

    Or, the dome light wiring may have developed into a loose connection.. the multimeter is the best thing to verify this condition
