Interior lights come on while driving

The door-open indicator is on during this situation; a pull on the driver door makes the lights and indicator go out, even though the door is securely latched; is the door jam switch adjustable? how? thanks

Yes,its adjustible.Pull off the interior cover.Next you'll see a nut that secures the light switch.Loosen that a turn at a time until it is in the proper place.(when the door closes without too much force)When you find your adjusment,tighten it back up.PS.there will be wiring attatched to that,dont damage the connector

The interior lights in my 2004 VW jetta do not turn on when the driver door is opened.


If I am remembering correctly, the switch is part of the latch. Each door has its own switch to turn on the interior light, and it sounds like the switch in the driver's door latch is either stuck or junk. If it has to be replaced it is very simple to remove for those that know how, but a nightmare for those that don't. The exterior handle has to be removed to release the pull-cord to the latch, interior trim panel and vapor barrier has to come off. Electrical harness, lock rod, interior handle rod, all have to be removed. Now the latch. Then it all has to go back together, and most importantly, it all has to work. I'm not saying it's not possible. I'm saying that it can ruin your day and your wallet if something goes wrong.

How do i slove my door ajar problem


Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

My interior lights won't turn off and kills my battery where's the fuse or how do I fix it?


It appears that one of the door operated switches for the interior light is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light staying on. It could also be that the "Off/ Door/On" Control switch on the main interior is faulty. Check each door switch by operating manually with finger with door open to see if light goes out.

It this check makes light go out then it could be that one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in and observing if interior light goes off, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact. If these checks don't produce results then there could be a problem with one of the door switches being faulty and making constant contact.

How do I set the interior light to come on automatically when I open the door?


{: ) If you open the driver door and the dome lights are off, there are two butons nearest to the right of the main headlamp switch. Push the one situated on top. That's the interior lamp on/off switch.

My alarm activates and interior light comes on when door is


Replace the drivers door switch, it's shorting out. It's on the B-pillar below your door latch, covered in rubber that you can pull off to get access to it. You can take it out, just tie a string to the electrical connector and tape it to the door so you don't loose it. The switches are fairly cheap at the dealership.

You have probably blown a fuse. The interior light switch is probably faulty causing the light to stay on and the warning to come up.

Lincoln continental fuses


I have heard there is a door sensor relay that can cause this problem when it goes bad, however i have not been able to locate this relay.

What i did do to better the situation is pull fuse 31 (15amp) out of the fuse pannel under the driver side dash and this will disable all of the interior lights and nothing else. I know this does not fix anything but at least i dont get dead batterys anymore.
