Well, I don't know if you already tried but last time my 300E went to shop and came back my dome light was not working while opening door but it would work when i close door at all times. As I didn't even know where that switch may be i looked at door how its opening and closing and show a switch.
I pulled switch out, show two wires going, swap them and operation was back to normal.
Since your light does not come on when inside car i will rule out this situation but hopefully some newbi like me may be helpful knowing this in future.
