Q: switch for back hatch window and dome lites

asked by on

My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The inoperative back hatch window switch and inoperative dome lights could be, just a blown courtesy fuse. Circuit tests should be performed, if the fuse checks out good. The fuse may have been removed, if the dome light was staying on, due to a faulty door ajar switch. Proper diagnoses should be performed to avoid unnecessary repairs. I recommend having your vehicle’s inoperative rear window switch and dome light be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
