06 Ram interior lights shut off quickly

My 06 Ram's interior lights time out very quickly.When the truck is not running, If the doors are open..lights stay on for about 5 seconds then shut off. Shut the doors then they come on again briefly.Using the keyless entry,they seem to stay on only for a minute or so. They do stay on if the truck is running. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    The owners manual did not show any way of adjusting the time the lights stay on. Thank you for your reply.

    Thanks for the reply. I will check with the dealer to see if they can fix it.

I maybe wrong, but there should be a proceedure in the owners manual to adjust the interior light timing. If this proceedure is unsuccessful check your dealer for more info.

    Check with your dealer, I'm positive there is a way to adjust the interior lighting. They should be able to manipulate the interior lighting controls through the bcm or cluster.

06 Silverado interior lights don't work when open doors dome light work on switch can't find fuse


If the lights work on the switch then you have tested the fuse. The fuse is listed in the owner's manual. Is this problem true for all four (or two) doors? None turn on the interior lights when opened.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time


Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open


Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

Interior lights run battery down when car is turned off.


Are you saying the interior lights don't shut off after the door is closed, or that the interior lights, when they're on for a short time, run the battery down?
If the lights stay on when they should shut off, there could be a bad door switch that's not registering that the door is closed.
If the lights being on for a short time when the car isn't running is running the battery down, your battery may be getting close to the end of it's lifespan & need changed.

The interior lights stay on and the door ajar light is on when driving. the interior lights stay on when you shut off the car thus running the battery down. It happens about 70 percent of the time and when...


Find the lamp push button on each door.
Open one door, and only one door (or tailgate).
Push the lamp button IN at that door. If light goes out, then that particular push switch needs adjustment or replacement.
Cl;ose door and open another door. Push button IN.
Keep doing this until you find faulty door push button.

Which door was it?

Interior Dome Lights will not turn off


The fault is most likely to be the drivers door micro switch.
Open your car door and push the microswitch button in and out a few times. This will probably make the light go off short term.
Long term just replace the switch.
