2012 LT - No Dome Light with Driver Door

10030 Views 22 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  NickD
Hi All,
Apparently I have a bad switch in the driver door. No Dome light,..open door notification or even Key in ignition notification when I open door with key in ignition.
Anybody fix this switch yet ??.... How hard is it to check / replace ???
All other door functions/switches work fine on Driver door. As well as other doors turning on dome light when opened.

Any help is much appreciated. Pics VERY welcomed. :grin:

Eh? I'm missing something here. AFAIK, it's just a switch, not a module.
Sure hope it's not a Module,
I'm assuming the door panel will have to come off to replace the Switch/Latch.
Anyone do this yet ???
Car is out of warranty,.. so I'm on my own here. Don't really want a Dealer involved unless absolutely necessary. :th_thumbsdownsm: (could get pricey).
Not really that annoying but I'll give a try at repairing if I can find the part and figure out the correct procedure.
Any "pics" or info is extremely welcome.
Thanks to everyone for the responses, this forum is the best for help and info.

I'm sure you've probably already checked this ... but could your dome light switch on the dome light "console" on the headliner have been accidentally moved so that the dome light doesn't come on when the door is open? Just something to check if you haven't already.
Already checked this,..all good.


Not only the dome light, if the radio is left on, will switch off when you open the door, with the key in the ignition, will get that annoying beep, also with the drivers door opened, switch your headlamps manual to on to hear another annoying beep.
Radio stays on and no "Beep" or "Ding" with keys in ignition or lights on with open Driver door.
All other buttons on the door work,..even when exiting the vehicle,..if I press down the verticle lock button, up by the window,..ALL the locks will lock.

I see 2 fasteners holding the switch in the door,...but looks like the panel will have to be removed for this to be replaced.

Thanks everybody.

**UPDATE**
I bought a new door switch,had a local mechanic change it out for me.He said he contacted a Chevy Dealer friend who told him that the switch did not have to be "Programmed",..it should be "Plug-and-Play".
So,...after changing the switch out,... still no dome light or other functions mentioned earlier in this post. Everything is the same,EXCEPT now the BCM is throwing a code,... **U1534 (K9 Body Control Module) LIN Bus 3 Lost Communication With Device 4 (M74D Window Motor - Driver).**
I called a Chevy Dealer close to me and the service Mgr. says "New switch has to be programmed". Around $100.
Thoughts anyone ???
:question: (P.S.- My mechanic didn't charge me for the change of the switch). He's a good guy !!!
Apparently the car now see's the new switch,..but still no dome light.

my suggestion if you don't want to go to a dealer then find a shop that can reprogram it there are a lot out there go to acdelco.com and search for service centers in your area
Thanks for the info !!! :goodjob:
Spoke with a Service Center close by, they said the BCM needs re-flashed,..common for Driver door latch/switch replacement. $74.50 + tax.
I'll update this post again when I have it done. :grin:
