    2 questions:

    1) How do you replace the dome light bulbs? There are two in a small
    pannel on the ceiling that also has two switches for the sunroof, two on/off
    switches for the dome lights, and a selector switch that allows you to
    select whether the dome lights are off, on, or on when a door is open. I
    was told that the plastic cover just "pops off" but I've pryed about as
    hard as I dare and it doesn't seem to be comming apart...I don't want to
    break it.

    2) What else would I check, as I really don't think its both bulbs. Other
    bulbs on the fuse work, so its not the fuse. The selector switch might do
    it, broken it the "off" position - I'll check when I get the thing apart.
    I've observed that the bulbs use to "fade" out when they shut off and there
    was a delay between closing the door and the bulb going out, so either there
    is an elaborate circuit somewhere or the computer is controlling this.
    Anybody seen this failure before?

    I've not seen any problems with the fade timer. If the lamps won't
    turn on when the switch is in the on position, you've eliminated that
    anyway. I've seen a few defective switches (requiring lamp
    replacement), but most of the time, the bulbs were burned out.

    To access the bulbs, I beleive the lens pries off. Typically, if you
    look closely, there's a small indentation where you can insert a small
    screwdriver to pop the retaining tabs of the lens loose from the lamp.
