Interior Lighting problem #1
The car is a 2001 GMC Jimmy. I previously reported 2 other failures refr to odi number 748064 this time my dome light stayed on and would not shut off I pushed the dome override button several times to shut the light off when I did all of my headlights and dash lights went out. I had to us the override headlight switch to turn on my lights. We took it to the dealer and they ordered a new headlight switch. As of the present time they have replaced my turn signal switch, my ignition switch, and now will be replacing the headlight switch. I feel these problems could endanger other owners. Could someone please contact me and let me know if I am the only person who is having problems so I can tell if this is just my vehicle or are others having problems. Thank you, you may call during the daytime at my work. Again thank you for your help. This problem occurred on Saturday, July 7, 2001.

The vehicle involved was a 2001 GMC Jimmy. Intermittent issue with the dome lights, they will turn on by themselves while driving and the only way to shut them off is push the dome override button. Alarm system has also gone off by itself with no one near the vehicle or trying to enter the vehicle. The cigarette lighter and the two multipurpose plugs work intermittently.

Interior Lighting problem #10
The car is a 1996 GMC Jimmy. (1)no events leading to failure. (2) dome light quit working when doors are open. Power mirrors quit working. Power seats quit working. I checked the fuse (a 20 amp) and it was burned out. When I replace the fuse it immediately blows the fuse, I've tried multiple 20 amp fuses and all have instantly blown when I try to replace it. I'm not sure if this is a related problem but the rear hatch will also not open by pressing either the button on the dash or the button on the tailgate. (3) haven't had the money to repair the laundry list of problems with this vehicle. It was December 5, 2004 when this interior lighting issue happened.
