I have searched all over for a resolution on this:

When I open the door, my map lights do not come on. The map lights will turn on when you press them (either driver or passenger) but won't come on when opening a door. The "door" button doesn't make a difference, whether it's pushed in "on" or not. The done light does come on when opening a door. I have Googled this and in another Kia model, it appears they replaced a diode in the wiring near the drivers door kick panel, but I could find no information on a Soul.

Does anyone have an idea? I'm sure I'm not the only one having this issue.

make sure that the control buttons in the door frames are not stuck and retract in and out with no problem.

The dome light comes on when you open a door (any of them), so i assume the switches on the doors are fine.

I guess it could be the "door" switch by the map lights, the button moves in/out, it kind of goes in further, then you push it and it comes out a bit.

I guess it could be the switch, any idea of how to check it? How do I remove it from the headliner?
