Drivers Door Light???

My inside dome light won't work for some reason when I open the drivers side door. When I open the passenger door it lights up like normal so I believe that the switch has gone bad. Does anyone have any expirence with this? How easy is it to get the switch out? Where is it located? Do I need to clean it or just get a whole new switch? Or is it even the switch at all? Thanks for the help....

Oh yea, I have a 1992 Bronco XLT

Yeah, it's the switch. Took me about 45 seconds to change mine. I think it's like 15 bucks at Ford. You just need a small 6pt socket set.

It's in the door jamb in the lower right corner, near where the seat belt attaches to the floor. It's black and has an accordian rubber boot on it.

Re: Drivers Door Light???

The door switch on my Bronco is located in the front of the door jam between the hinges. You can even get at it from behind by removing the side pannel under the dash.

Mine is an 86, and I've seen the same switch in the same location on a 97 F-250 (before the major body style change). Did Ford really move that switch to the rear of the door jam on later Broncos (and not the F-Series)?

I had ro replace mine on my 93 too. However, I also found that the wires in the plug were burned. Had to remove the plug and solder the wires to the switch. It also effects the map lights located by the dome light.

Riff-raff, I'm not sure. On my 93 bronco, the driver's is to the rear at the bottom, but the passenger's is in the door hinges like yours. Kinda weird having two designs on one truck.
