SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

SOURCE: my interior lights and door panel lights won't go out

I have the answer to your problem. One of 2 things. Cut wiring harness in the door accordain between the frame and the door. Or most common a defective door latch. The door latch contains the microswitch that tells the comfort module that the door is open or closed. If the lights stay on this means the switch thinks the door is always open. Also the alarm will not activate. First make sure no cut wires then if not replace the door's defective latch.

SOURCE: How do I remove the interior door panel on my mk3

You will find hidden screws behind things like switch panels and handles and handle covers. after you have remove usually around 4-5 screws/bolts the panel will come off either by lifting it straight up or will have door panel plugs that you will pop straight out.

The problem you are experiencing is the drivers side interior light switch is not working. This is usually found in the door latch on later model cars and usually requires the complete latch mechanism changing. However it would pay to check that your car doesn't have a pin switch fitted in the pillar.Unfortunately I think you have the former.

2003 chevy trailblazer driver door controls don't work, interior light won't work when driver door is opened. The other three doors work ok


There two common problems with the driver's door control panel, rain water gets into the module and damages the electrics or the wires in the door boot break or abrade and short out. To check out the control panel itself, take the passenger side panel and hook it up to the drivers side, if everything works, replace the driver's panel.

No buttons on the driver door panel work. the interior light doesn't come on when the drivers door is open. All fuses are good. :::::


Two possibilities, broken wire in harness that goes between body and door or a bad driver's door module. You can temporarily swap in the passenger side module to troubleshoot.

*1 The drivers door module is located in the drivers door.
*2 A double pulse will unlock all doors and disarm the factory alarm.
*3 The passengers door module is located in the passengers door.
*4 This wire will read the dome light delay. The avoid the dome light delay, use the separate door trigger wires and diode isolate each one. They are brown/white and are all located in their own door at their own door module.
*5 The comfort module is the main control module located under the drivers side of the dash.

Use this diagram for the door trigger isolation: motorsport.com/images/install_notes/149.jpg

Use DIAGRAM A.


Hope this helps.

I HAE A 2002 VOLKWAGEN GTI DRIVER SIDE INTERIOR LIGTS ALSO THE DOOR OPEN INDICATOR LIGHT ON DASH SHOWS DOOR OPEN


Hello there. If you are having those problems i am led to believe that the sensor switch of the driver door is faulty or has come loose. With the door open look for a little button. this button is usually sticking out of the frame on the car. Some vehicles have this button on the door as well. If you dont see a button that means that the switch is in the door lock mechanism. Some VW's have the switch in the lock mechanism, which makes it a pain to replace. Below are pictures of the two different types, Button and lock style.

I have a 1998 golf when i open the drivers door the interior light door light and if i leave the lights on there is no buzzer


Open the driver’s door. With a screwdriver or equivalent trip the latch on the door 2 clicks so it is in the locked position, just under that finger get a can of Brakecleen and hose the snot out of it. I mean really firehouse it. As fast as it evaporates I still had it running out of the door drains. Be careful not to get cleaner on the plastic door panel, trust me take extra care.
Open the outside door handle to release the latch, then open and shut the door for a while, like a few dozen times, to work the latch. Repeat as necessary. Follow up by shooting some PB Blaster, WD-40 or whatever light lube is handy. If this doesn’t work, give it a day or so to work free. If still nothing then the micro switch might actually be broken, but this usually does the trick
