Sequoia Dome Light Switch

4 posts in this topic

I'm having an issue with my rear dome light in my 2001 Toyota Sequoia. This is the overhead light in the rear cargo area. The light works if I turn the switch on manually. It also works if I open any of the passenger doors. It has quit working when I open the rear lift gate, though. I've searched all around the door jamb and cannot locate the switch that should operate the light.

Any ideas?

Funny this should come up, I had the same issue last year with the same year and model SUV. It would turn on manually but would not work with the rear hatch. I fiddled with the switch/light location on the ceiling of the truck replaced the lamp and it has worked like a charm every since.

Good luck.

I believe the switch is part of or attatched to the latch on those. It may be possible to spray a little lube in the latch area to see if it freese up. Should be a red wire and a black w/ white wire going to it.

Thanks, Airjer. That was my thought. I did spray a bit of lube in there. Might have to do a little more investigation on that. Unfortunately, I just put the door innards back together frown
