    Did you happen to flip the switch over so that the light wont come on?

    It should have 3 positions. 1-On, 2-Door (door open on), 3-Off (no matter what)

    I'd re-check all your fuses- Use a check light or a multimeter to be sure. (under hood and under dash).
    I have a hard time believing that you broke a wire or pulled a connector out of place enuf to lose all voltage unless you have done some mods or rewiring recently??

    This might be an off the wall suggestion... but check your door switch/plungers.

    I have a weird problem with my dome light & door switches - and occurs mostly in the cold weather. When I make a left turn, the dome light comes on briefly during the turn. I'm wondering if something will eventually stop working because of this...been tempted to swap door switches from side to side.
