Ever since i got my 94 k1500 a few years ago ive never figured out how to work the dome light in the ceiling. There is a light with a switch to each side of the middle dome light that work great because they have switches. the middle dome light does not have a switch (to my knowledge- maybe someone can help) But when i open the plastic cover to the middle dome light and put a metal screwdriver from the bulb to a screw next to it in the dome light, the light turns on. Can anyone help?

So they are the black things that stick out on each side of the dash. So when the doors are open the light is activated? So in order to fix my problem i need to disassemble the prong or clean it?

An extra set from a truck from the same vintage?

It's probably just as dirty as yours!

That's like saying the batteries in my remote died, so I found some more in the bottom of a box in the back of my closet and my TV still won't change channels.

:crazy:
