    What is it doing? the dome light is a open ground circuit. Like the door close, the switch is open, open the door the switch closes and the light comes on.

    Have you a manual? It will have a wiring diagram in it which will show the wire and color. I know that is is a loaded question, you may have the manual.

    1....Dome light should have power to one terminal of the lamp all the time. The socket is a 2 terminal socket THE SHELL does nothing.

    2...Second lamp terminal goes to yellow, and this is "common" with all other come/ courtesy lighting. You ground a yellow, the lamp should light
