Greetings, new member, new driver of a Cadenza as of Friday last week. Love the car, fully covered certified out to 100,000 miles platinum coverage, but I had an issue right away was wondering if it's worth hassling with a dealership or if it's an easy fix.


Center ceiling console switch for the dome lights offers on, door, off, is flaking out. To get lights on with it, you gotta jimmy it a bit. Then later it's not working again, gotta mess with it again. I'm assuming they will just replace the switch, I'm going to insist zero deductible on the warrantee since this wasn't working out the gate on a certified preowned. Or is it something known that's an easy fix?

I may have posted too soon. Just spoke to dealership, it's covered without deductible, so i'll just go that route, no sense messing with it myself.

Most certified preowned cars have a 100% warrenty for 1 year or longer. Check yours before you do any work on it

2014 - my door on-off switch on the overhead consle would only work between the two settings, in a neutral middle location - not pushed to on or off. Removed the overhead console. First remove the two screws inside the flip down holder. The module has two spring clips on the front edge and two plastic legs at the rear that are part of the module, so gently pry at the front and front corners. My front clips popped up out of the slides that held them and was then able to drop the front and pull forward to get the rear legs out. Used contact cleaner on the switch with no results. Playing with the switch found that the entire switch moves when toggled. Found that keeping it in the middle position with pressure at the rear driver side corner of the switch kept power on. Forced a small washer with electrical tape on both sides of the washer at the rear driver side of the switch between the switch and the case. Found that forcing the washer too low changed the pressure on the contact located on the case at the front side of the switch. Now will never touch it again
