The dome lights on the center console (up front) don't come on with the door.

Does your '07 lack a dome light near the center? If so there's a fix.

Works as designed. Those lights near the rearview mirror (the map lights shown on page 1-93 of the owners manual above) do not operate with the door.

Oooooooooooh yes, they do. Just need to get the free fix that Don67 has already mentioned.

This fix has been in circulation for a few years so is old news for most Santa Fe owners.

Apparently the original owner never bothered to get the "free" fix.

Take it to your dealer. It only takes a half hour or so.
