BUT the dash lights up with the door indicator when I have a door open.
and I can switch it to ON and the dome light turns on.

Was there a wire that needed to be tapped for an alarm install that would have been messed up after removing the alarm?

Do you need to tap a certain dome light wire or door wire to install an alarm?

I ask these questions to see if I can hunt down the culprit. I have replaced the dome light with a working one already.. bulbs.. and fuses. Did many searches on here and couldn't find anyone with a similar issue/fix.
Do you know how to use a multimeter? We need to do some testing... First at the dome light, set meter to 12v DC, hook black to ground, and red to the BLUE wire at the dome light, will require you to remove the dome light. If you have 12V when ANY door is open at that wire, you need a new switch. If it does not work. You'll need to check your wires at the integrated module. Found behind left side of dash. Here is some wiring to help you find it. Pin 2 is Yellow/black, 5 Blue, 7 Yellow, 8 Blue/Orange, 17 Blue/White. Check to make sure none of the wires have been cut or spliced. Three wires trigger the module to do dome lights. The wires should rest at about 12V and then drop to 0v when the door(s)open. Yellow is triggers for all the doors but the drivers. Drivers is Blue/Orange, and trunk/hatch is blue/white all at the integrated module. Happy hunting!

Anyone know where I can get the proper FlashLogic module preflashed for my car? Ive asked around and the places that will sell me the module, wont flash it unless they install it.
Try a local car audio shop, otherwise you'll have to order the update cable.... BBY probably charge 1/4 hr custom time. $19.99 + tax. Ask around.

This is because the wires that trigger the doors T and one goes to the combination meter (door open light) and the other goes to the integrated module, as explained above.
