Check that the buttons on the doors are not stuck or broken.. you also have a dome override (should be near your light switch) or the roller that dimes the interior lights

2003 ford explorer driver side door opens and closes by itself and interior lights stay on while driving


The opening and closing by itself is either the door being out of alignment or the Door pin being worn and in need of replacement. As far as the interior lights staying on, look for the brightness control for the dashboard lights. If that is turned all the way to the brightest setting there is a position just past that which turns the interior lights on continuous. Make sure it is not in that position. If it is not in that position and the lights are staying on with all doors closed, to include the rears, and you have checked the switch on the dome light itself to make sure it isn't set to ON, then the problem is a switch in one of the door jams being grounded or a wire was tapped into the power circuit for the dome light that has grounded. This happens when the LoJack installer or Alarm installer makes the mistake of tapping the light circuit for power.

My interior lights will not turn off. How can I turn them off on a 1998 pontiac sunfire?


Make sure they were'nt accidentally turned on by the dome light override switch, which i think it's your light switch. Try turning the knob counter clockwise until you hear a click and see if they turn off. if that didn't work then there may be a faulty door switch on the driver or passenger side.

1998 Ford Expedition "door ajar"


The door ajar switch is located inside the rear door face along with the latch. They can tend to get dirty and sticky over time. Using your favorite petroleum based lubricating spray, shoot it directly into the door latch area, being very liberal. Open and close your doors several times to make sure the switch is working freely. You should do this one door at a time so you can diagnose which door is causing the issue in case it resurfaces. Should be good to go.

Good luck.

1959 pontiac 2 door bonneville. how do you hook up the wiring for the dome light? two wires coming down from the light. driver side door switch has two terminals. pass side door switch has one terminal.???


Negative from the dome light to one terminal on the door jab,and the other terminal,hook to,and run to the other door jam on passengers side.The hot wire from the dome light goes to the hot side on the fuse box.A additional light switch can be installed,to turn the dome light on from inside the car,by running a ground to the switch,and from the switch to the ground side of the dome light.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

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?
