The dome lights in my 2000 Nissan Xterra do not work. The fuses and bulbs all look good. Any ideas?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Charlie, If you have for sure replaced all the bulbs and fuses, you may need to check your relay or assembly for fault.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Double check that the switch has not been accidentally turned off. Replace the fuse and bulb and if that doesn't work then it will need some electrical diagnosis.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at Would have to be some kind of wiring issue that would need to be diagnosed by someone with electrical experience.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Using a test light, check to see if you have power and ground where the bulb goes. If the test light lights up, then the bulb needs to be replaced. If the test light does not light up, then the system needs further diagnostics by a good technician.
