Question dome light is not working!

my dome light recently went out, i was trying to replace it. The bulb is still in perfect condition when i took it off, but i still put the new bulb in it. It's still not working . The door courtesy lights and map lights are all working. The only fuse i know is the interior light fuse on the driver' side foot. Is there another fuse for the dome light? has anybody experienced this issue?
My ride: 2003 EX Coupe V6.
Thank you in advance

Theres a fuse box near the engine bay right on top of the stock intake

I doubt it has anything to with the other one outside. Take the parts out and check the wires and other stuffs.

i checked the fuse box in the engine bay already, there's a fuse called small light fuse, it's fine. I guess there's something wrong with the wiring,

what I do when customers pull up with this issue is remove the lens that has the problem. remove the bulb. and squeeze the two prongs together. insert bulb and test. the light should illuminate. The connection may just be poor.

Im having the same problem in my car. I even tested the connections for the bulb holder and it doesn't show any voltage. Also, I checked my fuses and they are fine. If it is a wiring problem, were do I start? Do I just remove the headliner?

How about checking the switch to make sure it is not set on OFF.

i had this same problem on my 2009 Accord. i checked the interior fuse, as well as the fuse under the hood. Both are fine. The bulb looked fine, but on a whim i swapped the bulb with a map light bulb. The bulb ended up being the problem.
It's strange because most bad bulbs are apparent.
