This is a problem caused by a sticking door ajar/courtesy light switch. The switch signal goes to the BCM (body control module) and that turns on the interior lights. Since each door has this switch you need to have the dealer use a special tool to scan the module inputs from the door switches and see which door switch is causing the lights to stay on.

SOURCE: 1999 Buick regal Security light on. Won't start.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.

I have a 93 buick regal but my front doors & rear


Well, the mirrors would be on the circuit with the courtesy lights. The door locks and windows would be on different circuits.
Why can't you unlock the driver's or passenger door with the key and open it with the door handle ?

95 buick lesabre door jam button that turns dome light on and off


The complexity of the problem depends upon whether your Buick has lights with or without illuminated entry. In the former, a remote accessory control module is used in addition to an interior lamps relay position F circuit which could have a sticking relay. The "simpler" circuit has no remote accessory control module.

The dome lights and floor lights stay on in my 1993 Buick Regal Custom. I have made sure that all doors are shut tight and still they stay on!!


This sounds like one of your door jamb switches have stopped working.

This could also be the dimmer switch on the dash. If it has failed, it could keep the lights on.

Also make sure you don't have the dimmer switch turned all the way up to where it keeps the lights on all the time.

93 buick regal courtesy lights stay on when car is off


One of your door sensors (or trunk sensor) is signaling that it is open or the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, which turns on the dome and foot lamps. Try turning the dimmer switch all the way down. If this does not fix the problem you will have to get all the door sensors (and trunk sensor) tested to determine which one needs to be replaced.
