hey guys, got phone call from my Mom today complaining that her dome light stopped working when she opens her drivers door. The light still works if you open any other door so I'm assuming its the lil door plunger switch on the B-pillar.

What exactly is that switch called? I've been on opposed forces for a while trying to find the part, and I'm not having any luck even finding the diagram that shows that part.

I figure if I at least have the correct name for the part, I can call the stealership in the morning and see if they have one in stock

I have 4 of them in working order from an 02 WRX if anyone can verify the cross fitment :P

I call them door jamb switches.

Sometimes the plunger switch can bind up, and not work because of dirt build up. You may want to check for that before replacing. Also, check the switch position at the dome light to see if it is at the proper setting.
