Question about 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD 2WD

1 Answer

Interior light delay

I have a 2006 GMC 2500HD WT (work truck trim), 6.0L, 4x4. The interior lights do not come on if the door opens, or stay on after ignition is turned off and the door open. The door signals work (indicator on the dash display) and the manual interior light dash light dimmer/on-switch works to turn the dome light on. I am suspecting the dimmer timer that, when a door opens, closes, and waits a set amount of time, the lights dim to off.

Same for both doors? If not, I'd check the switch(s) on the drivers door (may be more than one), or may be just one that has multiple contacts and the ones for the lights may be faulty.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?

Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

Fuel gauge issue : this could be the fuel level sensor on the tank. its only a minor thing. with in regards to the lights it sounds like there is a wire that is shorting out causing it to stay on but take it an electrician and they should be able to test for this, and also the light switch could be faulty aswell and wont let the light turn off

Dash reads passenger door open when it is closed and interior lights stay on while driving


The door switch has been integrated into the latch mechanism on many GM vehicles,but I believe the switch can be replaced seperately.You will have to pull of the door trim panel to get at it,so you can probably do it yourself,depending on your skill level.

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra and the radio and dome light doesn't always respond when the drivers door is opened. It does work properly when any other door is opened.


you have a bad door switch on the drive's door - replace it.
more then that you may have a short in the wires coming from the car frame to the door itself, but try the switch first.

When u open the doors from any car some light cam up or turn on right ..my lights doesnt works


Look in your owners manual if manual settings, if auto settings on the steering wheel, using the upper left button scroll through selections until you see settings. It gives you options as far as time you would like the interior lights to stay on, or if you want them off. Sounds like the obvious fix to me. If not, check fuse bank under hood, left side, or on panel located on left side of dash panel when you open the door. The diagram will tell you which one to look at.

Turn off the interior lights in 04 Excursion w/ back doors open?


If you wait long enough, the lights will turn off by themselves. Or if you turn the ignition back to accessories setting (ACC) and the radio should stay on and the interior lights should go off. Let me know at FixYa if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.
