Sounds like there is no problem , on the newer cars , there is a time delay on the dome lights so you have time to get the key in the switch so you can see what you are doing ,some makes have a adjustment for the delay next to the headlight switch

I am needing to find the fuse that will turn off my dome lights off and also the lights under my mirrors. I can't get the light to turn off because their is something wrong with the door.


The fuse box is usually labeled, but if is not then pull each fuse out and back in 1 at a time until it goes off. The voltage will not hurt you.

i would hazard a guess and say that wires in the rubber boot from the door pilar to the door are damaged or the connection block in the door pillar in this the terminals are corroded or something similar

Dome light and outside mirror lights stay on


if your door ajar light stays on, spray some wd-40 into the latch and work it a few times. the sensors tend to get stuck and a little wd-40 (or other lubricant) frees it up pretty good. A simpler check would be to make sure that the over head lights are turned off on the dash!!!

Dome light stays on until you go over 25 mph


I have a 2002 Explorer as well. It mite be that the keyless entry box needs 2 be replaced. I had a similar problem with the door ajar thing and sum other lighting issues and that was the problem. Got it fixed and now I have no problems. The part costs like $25 but the labor, idk. A family member did it 4 me. Hope that helps. Good luck.

2009 ford focus dome light stays on


Are you sure that the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is not turned all the way up until it clicks?
If it is staying on for 10 minutes this means that the smart junction box is seeing a demand for the interior lights from something like a door ajar switch or the thumb wheel. If it sees that the igntion is in the off position it will turn the lights off after 10 minutes to conserve battery power.
Normal operation is:
The interior lighting delay feature provides temporary illumination of the courtesy lamps after the doors are opened and then closed. The interior lighting delay feature keeps the courtesy lamps on for a period of 25 seconds after all the doors are closed. If during the 25-second delay time the SJB detects that the ignition has been switched out of off, or if the vehicle is locked using the RKE, the courtesy lamp illumination is discontinued

Dome lights won't work or power mirrors


Ford's are notorious for electrical 'ghosts'.
If the fuses are all fine.. and the motors for the windows and the light bulb for the dome light are good... probably not much that can be done unless you want to give it to the dealer for diagnosis and repair, but they'll probably tell you they can't find the problem.

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
