Need to pull a fuse

So when i shut my driver side door the dome and door light do not shut off. i know about the button that makes those lights go off. however, that little plastic piece is broken. is there a fuse i can pull to shut those lights off when i close the door? i just need a quick fix until i get the part i need, and i dont want my battery to die.

Yes there is a fuse.............sorry I'm not familiar with the outback but if you consult your owners manual and look up fuse in the index there will be instructions to locate the fuse box and it will tell you which one is for the dome\courtesy\interior light
hope this helps....good luck!

Hi there I have an 04 Honda Accord 2.2i ctdi sport and I was installing projector lights into the door courtesy lights now the courtesy lights on the drivers side aren't working.


Could be a bad light switch in the driver's door. You can check and see if you have power on the driver's door with a tester before you purchase a new switch.

I have a 1989 chevy s10 horn radio and dome light not working keeps blowing horn/dm fuse out


Check inside the drivers and passenger side door jam for the little push in type switch. 9x out of 10 one or the other will be causing the short to the dome fuse. These little **** get rusty and also get alot of wear and tear from the door opening and shutting over and over. These switchs are what causes your dome light to come on when you open your door and or likewise they shut your dome light off when you shut you door. A very good way to test to see if one of these little switchs is the couprate is to take and hook up a voltage light into the negative side battery post after you disconnect the battery negative line.. If your voltage light is on than that would mean that you have a short somewhere in your system. Now, since you already know that you are blowing the dome fuse then your already halfway there. With the light on your votage light still on indicatin a short, unscrew the little switch on the door jam and disconnect the power wire from it. Check to see if the light on your voltage light is still indicating a short, if not then you can be sure that the door jam was the coulprete. Hope this is of help.

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

1998 Ford Windstar fuse problem - dome light stays on etc


you most likely have a bad door ajar switch- the door panel has to be removed to access it, its on the door latch- you can unplug them this will take care of the batt drain prob.as for the locks it may be a switch problem- most ford vehicles will not let you lock the vehicle from the driver's door when it's open to prevent locking the keys in.

Interior Dome Lights will not turn off


The fault is most likely to be the drivers door micro switch.
Open your car door and push the microswitch button in and out a few times. This will probably make the light go off short term.
Long term just replace the switch.
