The Interior lights won't shut off on my 96 Chev Caprice Classic. Shut the door and it has a slight delay before they shut off, but mine won't shut off at all. When you hit the brakes it dims the lights slightly. any suggestions?
Door pins may be bad, you doors may also be sagging at the hinges causing a bad connection, your lights will dim when you brake because of a draw on the battery, but it sounds like your pin switches are bad

one of your door jamb switches probably needs adjustment because it is not coming into contact with the door; usually the driver's door as that one gets used most often. these switches can be usually adjusted to be longer so it contacts the door again.
This can be caused by a door or trunk being ajar, be sure you shut all doors firmly, if there is still no resolve check by shutting all doors then open one up and press the button (if any) on the inside of the door jam and see if it is broken or the light goes off.
change the speedometer gauge system completely
and if you have those little buttons on the door for the interior light to come on when opened sometimes those stick so spray WD40 around the button and see if that takes care of the problem
