dome light troubles

Just replaced my dome light bulbs and now I have issues. Dome lights do not turn on with door opening or with dimmer switch. They will turn on individually by pushing the lens switch. Fuse 9 looks good, door ajar warning works. WTF did I do wrong?

Do you have a volt meter? I would take the covers off, and open the door. Then just test to see if you have voltage. At least you can start working backwards from there with the volt meter.

I have the same issue, it appears to be a chassis ground. I thought designers dropped that idea.

I find if I pull on the light fixture it will begin to work again. Don't forget I think the computer plays a part in the sequencing of the lights.
