The windshield wipers will not turn off on my 2008 silverado truck. I pulled the fuse and they still will not shut off. Even when my vehicle is off they are still on. What can be the problem?


Does the radioicon1.png shut off after you open the door?
Does the interior/exterior lightsicon1.png shut off after a minute or so after you open then close the door?
If not then I would think:
It could be a bad ignitionicon1.png switch/cylinder, a door switch, or a bad RAP (retained accessory module) module.
Thats why you still have power to the wipersicon1.png with out the ignition switched on.
If none of these solutions work then I recommend a professional or dealer.

Radio won't shut off after you open drivers door on a 1998 Olds Aurora. If I open one of the other 3 doors, radio shuts off ?


probably a bad or dirty door switch on drivers door, this can also effect interior lights not coming on when door is open

Interior lights come on ,on 2000 murcery marque when doors are cloced and vehicle shut off


There is a door switch on each door that causes the light to go on when that door is open. Sounds like one of them has gone bad. Take the drivers door switch out first (it is the most used) and see if problem continues. if not, you found your problem.

My radio will not turn off when I open my door on the driver side


Generally speaking, the radio and some other circuits "keep power" after you turn the key off for up to 10 minutes. When the door is opened and the interior lights come on, the power source is supposed to be turned off.
This "keep alive" relay could be in the body computer or it could be a separate relay.
You may need to have a shop take a look at it, or get the shop manual to have the wiring diagrams and test procedures.

Radio does not go off when key is out of ignition and door is shut


You are on the right track...the problem appears to be on the driver side rear door actuator switch...locate this spring loaded sensor usually on the inside of the door by the hinges...spray it with PB Blastor, or WD 40...(Blastor works better) and move the switch back and forth...this should loosen up the sticking actuator and return your Buick to normalcy...Hope this helps

The interior lights in my 2000 Ford F250 will not turn off. How can I get the lights to turn off?


Just to get the interior lights off to save your battery, you could pull the fuse. Refer to the service manual to determine the proper fuse.

To fix the problem, i would suspect one of the door switches is faulty.

Driver window switch not working


That buzzing sound was probably a short circuit in the switch panel. You will need to take the door card out and replace this panel. First check the fuses though. You may have blown a couple of extras because of the short. Did the door get wet on the inside somehow?

Where is the door contact switch?


Hiya
Check all 4 doors to see what works and doesn't work, be sure the interior domelight switch is set to turn on automatically when any door is open as well try the radio then open the 4 doors to see if it turns off...if your driver's side door don't work as you stated then that should be the door's "at fault".

GM built the door contact switch that's installed INSIDE the door-it's located inside the door striker/jamb area...it require removal of door trim to gain access.

However, you might want to try this visual inspection:
Check the thick wire harness located between the front-left door and door sill frame to see if any wire has been disconnected/cut or tampered with by previous owner.
