SOURCE: interior lights wont turn off

Double check your dashboard "dimmer" switch, most vehicles allow for adjustment of dash light. Once the max intensity is reached there should be an additional "click" which will cause the interior lights to come on and stay on. This is the first thing to check. Many newer vehicles also have a timer switch you should check which turns off the lights a minute or two after shutting the doors. It this is set to the max position it over rides the shut off.

If this is not the cause, you either have an additional fuse for the reading lights (most likely labeled something like "courtesy"). If you did pull the correct fuse and still have power to the lamps you may have a short in the wiring or faulty light switch, dimmer switch or one or more of the door switches which control the lighting. As you can see, it is a more complex system than most people assume. Please take the issue seriously (it is more than an annoyance) as it can melt your lighting fixtures, cause additional electrical system damage or even potentially cause a fire.

One other thing you may wish to check for is an additional switch on the rear hatch. My Kia Sedona has one I accidentally knocked into the on position which caused similar symptoms. The Sedona also had issues which a "Master Switch" located under the dash which controlled the lighting and it's timer which turns off the lights after a short interval.

SOURCE: seems like the car is staying in "ACC" (accesory key position)

the ignition lock cylider gets jammed try messing with the shifter my alero has done the same thing to me. the ignition cylinders on these the grand-ams and about five other gm cars with the dash mounted ignition are very ****-poor and a new switch at the dealer is 175.00 and you have to have it fitted to your key as the new one comes without a key

SOURCE: 97 corolla, car turned off, brake lights stay on,

Check brake light switch on brake pedal and see if there could be a rubber bumper missing or you could have a bad switch. Switch should be on or close to brake pedal and when you press pedal listen for switch to click.

SOURCE: right turn signal light stays on front and back

this problem is a bad BCM the relay is part of the computer system and your problem is common. replace the BCM and reprogram security and you will be good to go.

Or find someone to replace the relays inside. Harder to do than you think, I change them all the ime, but not easy to find the replacements.

Change battery and alternator but 08 Silverado battery goes dead after turning off

You have a current drain in your system. Using an ammeter identify the amount of drain. then pull fuses one by one until the drain disappears. Now you have the circuit that is responsible for draining your battery. You have to check all of the peripherals on that line.

Says fuse on odometer

Check the IOD fuse in the under hood fuse block. If its o.k. then there is an issue with the IOD (ignition off draw) circuit. I should be able to get you some wiring info if you need it.

I have a brand new battery in the vehicle and it went dead in less than 2 weeks. Would the computer located in the fender well have anything to do with the battery being dead? I have had the alternator...

You need to check for something that is a constant drain on the battery.
Is the underhood light staying on?
Are the interior lights left on?
Is the glove box light staying on?
Has anything been added to the van recently like an alarm, radio, amplifier, etc?
Do you leave your GPS unit plugged in or cell phone charger plugged in?
I would start my search (since you have already had the alt output checked) looking for something that is draining the battery slowly.

Alternator,battery good for some reason my battery just drains slowly then car won't start 67 el camino..

Most likely you have a parasitic draw. Unhook one of the battery terminals and put a test light between the cable and the terminal. If it lights, pull fuses until it goes out. the fuse that turns it out is the circuit that has the draw. Find what is staying on and repair it.
