There is a problem with the door switch the door is not pushing the switch in completely. Here is what you do close all the doors, then you open them one at a time with all the other still closed. start with the drivers door. open and look for the pin with that the door touches when you close its on the bottom close to the back of the driver's seat it has a black rubber covering it. Press with your thumb in and see if light goes out. Check all other doors in the same way you will see which door switch is not being pressed in completely when door closes. If you find it a quick fix is to pad the area on the door that makes contact with the switch to push it in, for example you can use one of those round sticky cushions that you use on the metal chair legs to prevent them from scratching your wood floor. However if you can solve the problem in this way you may have to take it to electrical mechanic or I will be able to provide more help. contact me and leave me a feedback. Good LUCK

    Hi, I've just come across this solution - and not sure if you're still around.
    I'm having this problem at the moment with my 2007 Corolla Verso. The warning light stays on as does the interior light when on 'door' position.
    I've gone around and tried all the doors and it turns off when I press one of the door pins - but with the other 3 and the boot the light stays on.
    What else can I try to fix this problem.
    Thanks.

SOURCE: what does it mean when

in most cases that will mean that one of the door switches is reading incorectly, because it is shorted or open. one of your door switches most likely needs replacing, or it is frozen. you would be best to take it to a dealer so they can use the scan tool to see which door switch is malfunctioning, and then replace it.

Toyota corolla 2006 fuel door light switch


Ther is no fuel door light in a 06 Corolla.
What you see on the dashboard is an arrow to indicate fuel door is on the drivers side. Of course once you fill up the first time you know which side it is on. Very handy if you rent a corrolla.

In my 2005 Corolla, the "door open" light is


look around the car on each door, you will see a small black switch on which the door shuts on. This switch when open brings on the light and bell. Go around and check by pushing each one of these in. This should stop the light/chime. It works on what is called an open circuit, if you check each of the sensors and the problem persists, then one of the sensors may be faulty or their is a broken wire somewhere in the circuit. For the mean time to stop your battery going flat, remove the interior light globe.

2006 Jetta - Driver door indicator light/sound not working


Sounds like a sticky door switch.

Open the driver’s door. With a screwdriver or equivalent trip the latch on the door 2 clicks so it is in the locked position, just under that finger get a can of Brakecleen and hose the snot out of it. I mean really firehouse it. As fast as it evaporates I still had it running out of the door drains. Be careful not to get cleaner on the plastic door panel, trust me take extra care.
Open the outside door handle to release the latch, then open and shut the door for a while, like a few dozen times, to work the latch. Repeat as necessary. Follow up by shooting some PB Blaster, WD-40 or whatever light lube is handy.
If this doesn’t work, give it might take a day or so to work free. If still nothing then the micro switch might actually be broken, but this usually does the trick

When i open the door the light does not come on


Most likely the button on the door jam for the closed door maybe bad. Make sure the selection switch by the light is on DOOR. Then if the button is working, the open door symbol on your dash display should light up with the door open.

If it doesn't light up on the dash display with the door open, then the button on the door jam is bad.

Door ajar indicator stays on


you may just need to adjust your door jams they may not be closing properly, the other thing you can try is opening one door at a time and putting your finger on the switch usually in the lower l/h corner of b piller and see if the light goes off if not this may be the problem and replace the switch

1997 Toyota corolla - warning noise when lights left on - not working on drivers side!


The ground circuit for the driver side door switch is compromised, or the door switch is bad. Try this: Remove the black rubber cover from the door swich. Using a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, loosen & tighten the switch retention bolt. See if the dome light flickers. If so, the ground on the switch is bad, & just needs cleaned up. If not, remove the switch, and touch the wire behind the switch to the body,or the bolt hole. If the dome light lights, you need a door switch. Your problem is entirely in the door switch/ground/wiring. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
