SOURCE: 2002 Sable - Interior light stays on all the time when car is run

you have either the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is turned all the way up or a sticking door ajar switch.
Does the door ajar light in instrument cluster stay on?
If so then you can shoot some WD-40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close them firmly a few times and this will usually unstick them.

2003 lincoln navigator lights on rearview mirror will not shut off, killing the battery.


If you mean the outside rearview mirrors, they have a courtesy light called a puddle light. And if not working, you may have the interior overhead light turned off on its selector switch.
Usually this is caused by the rear hatch or rear tailgate window not being fully closed. Some models may have an extra courtesy switch in the rear cargo area that is intended for "picnic" mode and overrides the automatic shutoffs.
There is suppose to be a battery "minder" which is suppose to keep the battery from discharging when lights are left on. You may need a dealer to explain why this feature has not worked.
