Default Interior light issues?

My dome light on my 2000 RAM doesn't work. Although mirrors/radio (factory infinity) do. I've followed along various discussions which all seemed to point to the black IOD fuse. So last nite I pulled it but couldn't figure out how to get it out. However, in that process, I ended up shoving it back in and viola!! Dome light came on and I heard a "whirring" noise - not sure what it was - reminded me of a power antenna. Anyway, so I checked operation of dome light - open door, shut door, repeat. Sure enough it worked. So I was happy.

This morning I go out in the dark to warm up truck. No dome light. Radio is working, and didn't even lose my presets although it reset the clock. Didn't check mirrors - but they were working before as it was.

So I must have had IOD fuse out long enough to reset computer. I would guess this also means that IOD fuse is good since I wasn't able to actually pull the plastic cover out to get to it? I'd really like to have a dome light....sheesh. Any suggestions?

Also, the plungers on the map lights don't work either. Can those be bought and replaced by themselves?

That fuse was in the small compartment on the left side of the dash? Fuse #12 - 10A?
If so, it is 'possible' the fuse is defective (not blown). Try replacing it with a new one.
