2000 Insight MT - 164,000 mi. Only owner.
My first post!

Anyone experienced dim dome light? Opening the door it's quite dim. When door is closed and the light is switched on, it's somewhat brighter, but still not full brightness.
Sure seems like a grounding problem - any tips would be much appreciated!

I've replaced the ground straps to the engine/trans sometime ago, the classic problem as discussed in other threads - they corrode and break.

Clean the bulb socket by mechanical abrasion either roll it in the socket, or remove and replace several (many) times. Try cleaning with a pencil eraser. Coat with a light shot of WD-40. Do the same on the door switches and the switch in the fixture.
You have checked the battery voltage right,it should be ~12.5 volts engine off and ~ 13.5 + volts engine and headlights on.

dome light

biododge1,
When I switch it to the on position (with door open) it gets brighter but not full brightness. It's been like this for years... and has slowly gotten more noticeable.
Thx!
