Interior light/moon roof not working

Hi guys, the interior light/moon roof isn't working.
Does anyone know of a fix?
Last I checked the fuses were fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Is it getting power? You'd have to take it off and check the wires. Could be a bad bulb or bad switch, might need a new housing. The switches on these aren't very good.

The switch is a really crappy design that uses a small little BB like ball to make contact with the ground, a lot of times it doesnt make good contact and needs to be messed with. I've "adjusted " mine plenty of times but still need to tap it after I switch to on from off but works fine in the door setting and when I keyless entry. Good luck.

Definitely sounds like an electrical issue if the light is also not working. Unless the bulb happened to blow out at the same time the switch went bad. Do you know how to check if theres power at the light/switch?

Side note, where are you located? If you need the switch you can have mine. Busted a timing belt last night. Gonna pull the motor for rebuild and scrap the body (its been hit too many times and needs too much after sitting for a while)
