2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Dome light stays on.

Everything seems to be ok with the dome light assemble itself. The ''button'' switches on the inside of the doors seem to function properly electronically. But the light will not go out when the doors are shut while switch is in the ''door'' position.

The door ajar/courtesy light switch that is mounted to the door latch inside the door is sticking, this is a very common issue with all late model Fords from 90's up.

Dome light won't cut off after door is shut


Adjust the dome light switch by moving the switch lever to a different position. If this does not work, either the dome light switch is defective or wires inside the dome light came loose and caused a short across the switch itself.

The interior light that illuminates the speedometer does not work. Everything else seems to work. The dimmer switch does activate the dome light. Could it be a fuse?


could still be the dimmer switch, the dome lights are on a separate circuit in the switch, it may also be the fus.

Looking for the stoplight fuse in a 2002 ford


Go to this site for a free download of the original owners manual. The stop light fuse info is on page 123. If your fuse is ok, check the stop light switch to see if it is the problem.

2001 Ford Escape, dome light will not go off when door shut, but door ajar light is dark?Could this be the door switch? are there different switches for the door ajar light and the dome light? How can I...


The door switch provides a ground to the dome light... so there is no danger to you if you want to attempt a removal of the switch. A rusted or shorted wire in the door switch (of any door) will keep the dome light on.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

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 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?

What make the dome light and ajar light stays on after closing the doors on my 97ford f 250


The door adjar switch is sticking. Most of the time you can spray WD40 into the latch assembly in the door and open and close the door a few times and this will unstick it.
