Question about 2005 GMC Sierra
The dome light comes on when the ignition key is removed!!!
Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

There is a timer for the interior lights. The lights come on when you remove the key to give light exiting the truck. ( normal I think )
There should be a door switch on each door that makes the interior lights come on when you open the doors.
The problem could be in the timer too.

its a long process,you need a steering wheel puller, once its off take the hazard button assembly out, take the turn signal loose, pull old ignition out, carefully install new one, and reverse procedure and always if u get confused i would highly recomend
a chiltons manual they explain things great

This may sound too simple, but first verify that you are getting voltage to the light socket. Use meter on d.c. If you are getting voltage, and your bulb is good, it could be a bad ground. Don't overlook the brake light system goes through the directional signal in the steering column.

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: Ignition switch
The Switch is bolted about half way down the steering column on the top I believe. You will have to remove the plastic cover beneath the steering wheel to get to it. Unplug wiring connector from the switch and remove two bolts holding it to the steering column there is a long rod coming from the cylinder lock that hooks into switch, it should come right out after bolts are removed. It will help if you are a contortionist and have very small fingers :)

Tips for a great answer:
The liftgate lamps
You can't turn them on manually ?
This could be a BCM problem , this best left to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer .
