My '16 is one of two failures reported to G.M. The dome light circuit kept blowing fuses and after lots of troubleshooting and consulting with the factory the Chevy tech was told to replace the SUN VISOR. This is a non-service item and the original-- with the very unneeded lighted vanity mirror--is being returned to G.M. for analysis of an internal short.
On the 7th day of captivity I got my car back and am slowly recovering from acute separation anxiety. The loaner Camaro got me where I needed to go in spite of harsh ride and ancient drive train, but it was rattle-free and the top had low wind noise at speed.

The drivers sun visor is the first place I look if there is a dome lamp failure of any kind no matter what make/model of the car. Its the only circuit that has movement and gets the more use then the passengers side. I have seen the short cause the fuse to blow, the visor to get very hot or just cause the dome lamps to dim or flicker.

If I remember correctly, the older Golf GTI had that happen a lot, that's the only reason I'd have thought of it.

Kinda reminds me of my friend who kept getting a dead battery in his Cadillac...until we figured out his TRUNK light was just staying on all the time.

Get a kid to lay in the trunk to figure that one out?
