Dome light not working

All of a sudden my 2014 altitude passenger dome light won't turn on when the doors are opened. The rest of the lights turn on but it won't. It will however turn on when I click it manually.

I have installed putco led interior lights throughout with no problems for a while now.

This light just randomly stopped turning on tonight with the opening of doors and I also smelled a slight electrical burning smell for a couple minutes. After checking the housing, all looked and seemed well, but the smell was definitely coming from that light.

However the light still works fine (with no more smell) when I manually click it- it just won't turn on with the opening of doors or the turning of the light knob all the way up- whereas all the other lights work fine.

What could this be?
Will reset battery and check fuse box in the morning
