Hallo Freek,To turn it on you have to click on the switch below it (Panel Lights). Of course, you need power first.Best regards,--pim

Hello Pim,Are you Dutch??In first place thanks for your respond.The Panel lights working fine, but the "dome Light" switch above is still dead. Status is "powered up"B.T.W. I'm talking about the situation in "Cockpit View", "Virtual Cockpit" works fine.Regards Freek

in the in-game PMDG menu, there is a key assignment for the dome light, assign it to an unused keyboard key and that will turn on and off the dome light

when the game is running, press the alt button on the keyboard to get the in-game menu, there should be a PMDG menu, click on that, then a key assignments option should show up in one of the submenus

Hmm . . . Speaking of this:Is it possible to turn on and off the cabin lights? I know very well that 737's don't leave the lights in the cabin on during a flight; usually it is very dark.
