Well I tried recalibrating the dimmer switch as it tells you in the manual but no luck. The door chime does work though when door is open with the key in the ignition. So I assume the door switch is working then? I haven't had a chance to check the bulbs yet. That is next on the to do list as soon as I get a chance to do it.

ohmartm - I checked my mirrors today and those all work fine so I think your problems might be unrelated.

Thank you for testing your mirrors. Now I can start looking for a fix for that. Thank you.

Relays gone bad? Could be the relay for the door switch...

I love easy fixes, I'm just never usually that lucky. I switched the bulb over from the working map light and bingo! We have light!

For the rest of you guys check your bulbs and fuse number 9 in the pass side kick panel. If that doesn't help you out then you might be facing a SJB (Smart Junction Box) problem.

I was even able to find the code on the SJB to get my keyless entry keypad working. It's been a good day

Mine looked like they were ok too. They had a slight discoloration but the filaments looked like they were in tact still. Swapped them out and problem solved.

I had same problem when I got my truck. The bulbs looked good. I checked fuses all over the place. I posted on here the same question and once I swapped the bulbs with new ones I felt dumb, they were actually bad bulbs. The manual switch would work but the door lights didn't. Just switch the bulbs before assuming a bigger problem like I did. was a $3 fix. lol.
