    I know it's a dumb question, but are you sure the dimmer wheel isn't all the way up? At the very top, there's a slight click into the full on position.

    I have the switch all the way down when I put the fuse in, the dimmer and override switch have no affect on the dome light

    I would pull the switch module out next and check it then.

    Door switch is also a good idea. I started at the headlight switch because he says the override does nothing.

    Is the switch in the door jam or relocated to the door latch at the striker?

    Knowing the year would help too besides just 2000 to 2006

    My 2002 Tahoe takes an AC Delco D6068A as a door jam switch. Is at Rock Auto

    @M1Gunner has a great write up on rebuilding/cleaning the door switch.

    Inside if you don’t see it in the forward jamb.
