Question about 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Dome light won't turn on.

I have a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero and the dome light won't turn on when I open the front doors. It will turn on when I open the back doors however. It only recently changed to not working when the front passenger side door opens. Not only will the dome light not come on, but the radio/clock doesn't always shut off when I open the front driver's side door.

    Mine is an 04 and I have the problem with the radio not turning off.  I haven't had the dome light problem, and it also leaks water into the car from somewhere under the steering wheel.  I think this has something to do with the problem.

My interior lights stay on even with the doors closed and the dome override button won't turn them off either


This is a short on the dome lamp assembly. It is possible that the ground wire from the dome to switches is short.
remove assembly and check.

Dome light stays on


Aren't the door switches in the door jamb or is the dial for the dash lights turned all the way up?

My map and dome lights won't go off. I have to disconnect the battery to get them to turn off. Any ideas 2001 Oldsmobile Alero


Have you left the over ride switch on? If thats not the problem then the car thinks one of the doors are open, which would mean one of the door jam switches is bad.

I have a 2003 corolla le my door light is on and wouldn't go off


I could be a door switch.  1. switch dome light to door 2. close all the doors 3. open each door one by one. if the dome light comes on then you    know that switch is good. 4. closed the door and wait for the dome light to turn off then move on to the next door. 5. If you find a door that does not turn on the dome light than bingo you have a bad door switch. * the door switch may be your problem because of the constant abuse of slamming, closing , and opening the doors. * This test is not 100%. it is just a visual test. and sometimes with a simple visual test you can diagnose your problem while saving time, and $ Good luck!
