The door switch has been integrated into the latch mechanism on many GM vehicles,but I believe the switch can be replaced seperately.You will have to pull of the door trim panel to get at it,so you can probably do it yourself,depending on your skill level.

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab door handle broken

You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.
Look for the one sold by
mike8756.

It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.

Installation instructions are here:

Good luck.

SOURCE: no power to passenger door

Couple of things to look for. Have you used a circuit tester to make sure it isn't a switch that is bad? If there is no power in the door, check the rubber boot that is between the door and truck body. Inside the boot are many wires to the power door locks, windows, mirror...etc. Over time the wires sometimes break due to opening and closing the door many times. I've found that and a bad switch are the most common problems in GM trucks.
Good Luck

SOURCE: passenger truck door is locked

you will need to get the panel off, there are screws in the armrest, if window crank will be clipped/screwed on then its just a matter of popping off the sides with a flat tip, lifts up and out, once panel is off you should be able to unlock door. Tim

So now i'm adding to my problem. First the panel read passenger door open and the interior lights stayed on while driving. My husband hasn't had time to fix, so I had to drive it anyway. No


Fuel gauge issue : this could be the fuel level sensor on the tank. its only a minor thing. with in regards to the lights it sounds like there is a wire that is shorting out causing it to stay on but take it an electrician and they should be able to test for this, and also the light switch could be faulty aswell and wont let the light turn off

I'm not sure which passanger door you're taking about, but i'll assume it's the front passanger door. What I think is happening is that the passanger door's not pushing the Door Switch all the way down when it's close cause the light to stay on.

First check to see if the door switch(to see the switch, open passanger door and it located lower left coner. see picture below) is work by push on. The interior light should go out when push down and on when release.
k42282_35.jpg -If switch is not working, replace door switch.
-if switch is working, adjust passanger door inward by loosing the door striker(A) bolts(B) and tipping it with a hammer. Adjust until door open/close proplery and light stay off when door is close.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up


If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

Dome light


Might sound funny but check the rheostat knob that dims the interior lights, sounds like its set to always on. Check the dome light too, some have always on and on when door is open settings.
