Default Installed OHC, Dome Light doesnt work

Let me clarify, the Dome light only works with the Doors closed( and I switch on the dome light), when I open the doors only the new OHC map lights work. clearly its an energy problem with draining on that specific line. Thoughts? Resolutions? Would love to hear it. Thanks,

Liam

yeah but the Maplights on the OHC still turn on. I pulled out the Dome to install and tap in wiring and when reinstalled everything the dome only works when the doors are shut and I toggle the switch individually for the right or left lamp. ... ?

So the dome light only works when the doors are shut and you use the switch by the headlight switch?

If you open the doors it wont come on at all

Almost, the dome lights only come on when the door is shut and I use the toggle switch on the dome light itself. when I give power (switch on) the switch next to the headlight only the OHC Maplights, and the brakelight/whites flip on as it should, but no dome light. when I use the domelight switches it works but it's at about 60% normal brightness, which makes me think its a bad connection somewhere, Ive gone back through the screws that hold the domelight in and all seems good. Thoughts?
