Take out the dimmer control module located on the left side of the instrument cluster and unplug it. if the lights go off, you will need to get another module.....junk yards would be best

My guess is, the dome light has a three position switch that got turned to "always on" when you yawned and stretched. Either that or the panel switch is turned to "always on." My roommate once had this problem and for weeks he disconnected the battery every time he parked. But when I drove one time, I noticed the panel light switch was turned on. Problem solved.

    I had the same problem, plus my instrument panel was not bright enough. Sliding the instrument control switch all the way up did allow control panel to be bright, however, the interior lights would not turn off. Sliding the switch all the way down turned off the interior lights, but made the control panel too dark to see. After reading this comment, I went to my car and slowly slid the switch that controls the interior lights. I noticed, there was a slight pause halfway between all on and all off. This middle position, allowed me to turn off the interior lights without dimming my instrument panel.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: 1992 buick lasabre interior lihts don't go on when door is opened

look for the door switch (its the thing that gets pushed in when you close the door - it's a plunger) - I reckon this switch is corroded (giving the age of the car) - (you have checked the bulb and fuses first?)
you need to either replace or repair this switch - very cheap part...

SOURCE: NEED TO REPLACE THE HEATER

the fan "blade" is a tubular rotating device that looks like a mouse treadmill. it can't go bad. if it is binding, free it. it is almost certainly the motor which will probably come with a new fan cage.

You probably have a door switch that is not operating properly so the dome light comes on. You can remove the dome light bulb to keep from running down the battery and then during daylight you can spray the car door latches liberally with WD40 and open and close the doors repeatedly and hopefully the door switch that tells the car the door is closed will begin working properly and then replace the dome light bulb and lights will stay off. This is a common problem on Fords as well as GM vehicles.

I have a 2003 Buick lasabre I try and start it all lights and radio work but it won't start


does the engine turn over and not start or does the engine not turn over. makes a difference. if the engine is not turning over then you could have a starter motor problem, either a bad/dirty connection or the voltage is not enough to start car or the starter itself is bad and needs replacing. it takes little voltage to operate lights and radio compared to a starter.
