Timpinson I have an '08 F350 Super Duty Crew Cab. The Domelights, map lights, and back-up lights do not work. The door sensor switches work on all four doors, I get a message on my dash when one is ajar. I have replaced all bulbs, checked all fuses, and still nothing...

divalent in my 2010 F250, there are 3 bulbs (of the type that look like fuses), one for each of the manual switches (left and right), and a central one for the door. My manual lights worked, but the door one didn't. Took it apart and the central one was burned out. Replace and it works. This video showed me how to get the unit off the ceiling. (I'm new here so can't post an actual link; so the Youtube video is g6tPmqrZTfQ.)

Biggredd 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.

Mustangnut6788 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.

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
Awesome!! Thanks for the information! I will have to go out and check for any blown fuses... i wonder if i can get my aux input on my stereo to work...
