Is the light switch in the back of the blazer on, that will turn on all the dome lights and not shut them off until that switch is turned off, it's just inside the blazer on the ceiling.

You don't have the dome switch in the on postion do you? If not, the headlight/dome switch may be the problem. It's very seldom that the door pressure switch is the cause of this problem.

My dome lights keep coming on randomly when the engine is off. Why is this happening and what is the fix?


The dimmer switch controls the dome light. The switches in the door jamb turn the light on when you open the door and off when you close it. Check the position of the dimmer switch on the dash and if it is really close to the brightest setting move it slightly dimmer. It may be touching the switch for dome light constant on as if you move it all the way to the left it locks the light on. Now for the door switches. There are two different types. One type is built into the door latch itself and you would have to replace the door latch to repair it this is very difficult. The other type is a small button in the front of the door jamb that cuts dome power when you close the door. Ckeck to see if these are cracked or crushed and not fully turning the light off. press them in several times to see if they are sticking or loose as they are only held on by one nut and if the nut comes loose the switch moves closer to the light on position. If loose tighten the nut. If you have to replace it remove the kick panel just behind it , remove the nut, and pull it out from behind the panel. reverse to install new switch and careful not to over tighten as these things will snap in half very easily. Hope that solves your dome light worries, good luck and thanks for visiting Fixya.com for all your solutions, Rich

the door that makes the lamp turn off after you open and close has a bad door ajar switch, try to spray some pb blast in the door latch that might help ease the problem if not replace switch

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

Dome light wont go out


Sounds like the switch that turns off the light when the door is closed is not functioning properly. Also make sure the dome light switch wasn't bumped. On some cars it is the same device that brightens the dash lights.

The door switch is sometimes on the car frame. Look for a spring loaded button.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

Dome lights wont shut off


sounds like there might be 2 feeds coming to where you disconnected the switch, I would co to the reckers & get another one from a similar car. Most of them complete the circuit when they close the switch/door open when the door closes then switch it left hanging open.

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?
