Hey guys,

I was replacing the bulbs in my front map lights a couple weeks ago and once I got them installed I noticed the back ones weren't coming on when the doors opened. I can still turn them on by pushing the buttons, but only the front lights come on when a door is opened. Electrical work is not an area I'm supremely confident in so I thought I'd see if any of you could offer up some ideas. I don't figure it's a fuse because I assumed that would keep the lights from coming on period. Or am I just that unobservant and the lights have never come on when a door was opened (although I'm pretty sure they're supposed to come on).

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

There is a big switch right next to the lights. Its the switch that designates whether or not the lights come on with the doors. Flip it to the other setting.
