dome light problems
for some unknown reason, my dome light keeps shorting out. the first time it happened, i took it to the dealership and they fixed it within an hour. then it happened again! it will flicker real fast then boom, its gone. so i got it replaced again. now guess what, it has gone out a third time. does anyone have any suggestions? i have a feeling my alarm might have something to do with it cause when you activate/deactive the alarm, it blinks all my lights; including my reverse indiglo gauges which have already gone out once too. i dont want to have to replace these too. my gauges arent covered under warrenty. if it means anything, its a cobra alarm. circuit city installed it.

i would say take it back to circuit city and complain that their alarm keeps blowing your fuses.

I don't think it is circuit city. I have been having the same prob w/ my celica. I have a 2k2 GT w/ Dunroom (sunroof affacts which bulb you use) I bought end of Feb 2k2. It has burnt out twice now and I get the feeling it prolly will again as soon as I bother to get it replaced again. I have no alarm system, CC or otherwise.
