Hi.

 

Do you still have the switches and bulbs? If so I'd like to order a pair of switches and 4 bulbs. I'll be paying with PayPal.

Do you know if the switches work on other cars? I have an 89 Regal with map lights that have a similar issues to the vert dome lights.

That is an interesting question.  I'm thinking you're talking about the lights in the back seat on the side of the roof, right?  I have a couple of olds coupes, I would think the regal would be the same as that.  So, on the olds coupe, the switches Look the same and do fit into the housing but the shaft/pushrod isn't as long - the coupe being longer.  I suspect you could get creative and figure out a way to make the shaft longer - either by drilling a hole in the middle and putting a screw half way in, or maybe cutting a slice off of yours and gluing it to the new one (or maybe a combination of both of these).  One other idea...I know some folks have taken the switches apart (to reuse the original wires as opposed to splicing them in).  If they could do that you could probably switch the shaft (if it isn't damaged\melted).

 

I'd suggest taking one of your lights off to see what it looks like.  If it looks like a match try separating the switch into 2 halves to see if you can extract the pushrod piece.

 

Maybe post up a pic of what you have, if it's the same as the olds...we'll come up with a plan.  I might have one around I can play with.

In the Regal, the back C pillar lights are controlled by the dimmer on the headlight switch. I haven't seen a way to formally turn them on and off separately. The Regal has an overhead console  with a cubby. That console also has the map lights and the "dome" light.

 

This is not mine but it looks like this.

I've taken it apart before, and it seems that the buttons are similar enough but I don't have a CSC one handy to compare.

Well, here's some measurements for reference.  It's 3/8" wide where it would slide into the housing (so that would equate to the size of the hole that it would slide into) and 7/16" from the base of the top of the switch to the top of the pushrod (so the height from the bottom of the hole it would slide into).

By the way, are they the same from 90 through 95? I 'm only sure about 93-94.

Nice, good find!  And that confirms the light is the same from 92 - 95.  Anybody know if 90/91 is the same?

Careful, I got a set of super nice corner markers when I rebuilt the Regal a few years ago off a different model year and they were like an inch too short for the recess in my bumper. Blew my mind.
