Flat-Six is on a distinguished road
Frt Center Dome Light, Door Puddle Lights INOP

The Center Dome light in the front, and both door puddle lights do not come on when opening the door. The center black button will not turn on the center dome light (in the front) either. Both front map lights work, and rear dome lights all work with the respective buttons. I've also tried resetting fuse 14. All dash lights work.

I've swapped/tested all bulbs and they are fine.

Check the Vanity light over the visor mirrors. Are they working?

Could be a bad ignition switch (electrical portion). See symptoms of a bad ignition switch.

Do you have an airbag light on? Could be your seat sensor. Most common is passenger side.

Yeah, I was hoping for something cheaper and easier. I'll start digging into it once I get a few other things fixed. I was just wanting this to be a quick and easy.....thanks for all the help.
