    2000 mercury sable-- dome lights interior won't turn off!

    just happened last night, still on this morning

  • Anonymous Jan 26, 2009

    I have the same problem with the dome light staying on. I have pulled the bulb and put it back in later and it stays off. However, after one or a very few door closings it still tays on. I have since pulled the light permanently so as not to drain the battery. is it safe to assume I only have to change the drivers door switch? Please help! TX

    I agree with swanny007, also please state what repairs have been done, I wasted my time with this issue, and I am a Ford dealer tech. Please the whole story.

    there are little switch's on the latch of each door, they are called courtesy light switches, one of them is sticking, they are cheap but the door panel must be pulled to replace them, any one of them cn cause the problem, but most likely it is the drivers door that has the sticking switch.

Check the dash light dimmer switch. Perhaps it's set to have the interior lights on, when you turn the dash lights all the way bright, turning it a little more turns the interior lights on. Let us know how you make out.

SOURCE: 1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

I have a 99 mercury sable, while replacing the headliner the dome lights and power windows quit working. I have checked all the fuses and the relays under the dash and all of them are good. I also checked...


odd,look for a fault in the ground side of that system,
if you check for voltage at say the dome light ground to battery
ground,there should be 0. even a test light from the battery ground to the dome light ground would work,if it even glows the ground is faulty. All I can think of ,,good luck.

My door ajar light keeps coming on along with my dome light but all doors are closed. If I open and shut the passanger door it goes off for awhule and then starts again.


Each door has a door ajar switch in the latch. You can either take some WD40 lube each latch opening and shutting each one 4 to 5 times after spraying, or you can replace the switch

2002 sable ls door light showing doors are open after there closed


You have a little sensor that is pushed in when the doors shut. It is the same one that controls the dome light coming on. Make sure that the doors are closing all of them. One is probably not getting pushed in correctly.

Interior lights on


Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Then re-connect cable and start the car. Good luck.

97 mercury sable, overhead dome light always stays on


THERE IS A SWITCH, IT IS THE DOME/DOOR AJAR SWITCH INSIDE THE DOOR ON THE LATCH. U MUST DE-TRIM THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE REAR GLASS RUN CHANNEL TO REPLACE IT, ALSO ANYONE OF THE 4 SWITCHES CAN BE THE PROBLEM, FORD CAN TEST IT WITH A NEW GENERATION STAR TESTER AND ID THE PARTICULAR DOOR THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. PART IS ABOUT $25.00 EACH
