ok, I'll ask because this has fixed this issue in the past...

did you check the dimmer switch?

Check the terminals on the back of the dimmer switch and the wiring harness that goes to it for corrosion, that was my issue when this happened to me.

It depends on what you mean, but I've been guilty of not turning it all the way and thinking it was screwed up. Embarassed

well my dimmer switch is weird, i didn't know the connections on the back corrode that easily but it makes sense now, i used to have to play with the knob turning the interior lights on and off quickly, sometimes i had to pull it in and out too like turning on the night time running lights and eventually it would go on. whats the easiest way to get to it? ill probably figure it out, but if theres a trick to it let me know!
