Try looking on the drivers side at the end of the dash board. there is a panel cover that looks like it is part of the dash board but is held on by three clamps that release with a slight tug. the 300m's front door opens wide and you can get to the fuses quite easily.r

1998 Jeep Laredo continuous clicking sound passenger side under dash it runs battery down ignition is off continuous clicking please help thank you


A number of people in the link report the same problem on the Jeep Forum and there are a number of fixes.

I also found this for you.

The problem seems to be a short in one of the rear dome lights, which seems to be affecting two fuse circuits. The temporary solution was to remove one fuse and replace another (blown), and remove the bulb from the bad dome light. I had to remove "fuze#5-15 amps-Interior Lighting", this stopped the clicking noise, I replaced blown fuze#8-15 amp-Overhead Console, keyless Entry ..." This fuse also seems to effect the alarm system (contrary to the documentation), and I think that was what was killing the engine. The problem existed before fuse#8 blew. Removing fuse#5 may have solved the problem, but the other fuse blew while I was testing the dome lights, and the jeep will not start without it.

Found lots of wires bare or broken in all the door wiring harnesses ( in rubber boot that goes to the door)I first checked both fuse 5 and 8 but both o.k. After fixing the broken wires found fuse 8 had blown. Replaced that and all is well again. Thanks for the advise got me looking in the right direction.

. Fuse box located in passenger side door jam...check #8 fuse if its not blown check others...if it is blown, check your radio, and interior lights for good ground
Clicking noise under passenger dash Jeep just shuts down

Where is the interior light relay on 2001 ford windstar


Your interior lights are controlled by the GEM - generic electronic module !
Battery Saver The battery saver relay is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM) and is located in the fuse junction panel. The battery saver relay is designed to supply B+ voltage to the following:
  • dome and map lamp switches
  • visor lamps
  • glove box lamp switch
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior courtesy lamp relay
  • delayed accessory relay
The function of the battery saver relay is to prevent excessive battery drain by interior lighting circuits. The GEM supplies a ground signal to the battery saver relay anytime one of the wake-up inputs of the GEM is activated to operate the battery saver relay. A wake-up command is sent when:
  • any door becomes ajar or is opened or closed.
  • the ignition key is inserted or removed.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to RUN.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to ACC.
  • a wake-up request is received from the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module (if equipped).
  • The GEM will maintain the ground input with ignition in RUN or for 40 minutes from the last input activation with ignition in the OFF position. After 40 minutes the ground signal is discontinued.
This de-engergizes the battery saver relay preventing B+ voltage supply to the controlled switches and circuits.

  • Short to power.
  • Damaged switch.
  • Generic electronic module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test AF .

Interior lights and tail lights don't go on for 2002 nissan sentra


you most likely have blown 10amp fuse for tail lights in the fuse box under the hood as far as tha tail lights go. turn your lights on and check your tail lights along with the plate lights. plate lights are on the same fuse as the tail lights. there is a fuse box by the battery which has tail light fuse in it. the lid of the fuse box is showing location of fuse. as far as your interior light goes, make sure that you have the switch in "door" position or it will not come on when door is opened. or just put it into "on" position to see if it comes on. but turn it off or put it back to "door" position/middle seting or your battery will drain down.

Interior lights run battery down when car is turned off.


Are you saying the interior lights don't shut off after the door is closed, or that the interior lights, when they're on for a short time, run the battery down?
If the lights stay on when they should shut off, there could be a bad door switch that's not registering that the door is closed.
If the lights being on for a short time when the car isn't running is running the battery down, your battery may be getting close to the end of it's lifespan & need changed.

Battery drain


When the car is shut off, there should be a very small load on the battery to keep the clock running, the security system on etc. But the amount of current is really small. If the battery is dying overnight, something is loading it;
Charge the battery right up.
Have ignition off, doors and trunk closed, no interior /exterior lights on and leave the driver door window open.
Take a fairly large automotive bulb like an 1157 or even a headlamp.
Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery.
Connect one wire to the negative terminal of the battery from the light, and the second light terminal to the negative battery cable you diconnected; connecting the light in series. Don't put the negative battery terminal on the battery.

The bulb should not light if all your ignition system is off and you have no lights turned on.

Turn on the lights or blow the horn by poking through the open window without opening the door, the test light should light and the horn sound.

If the light lights without anything being on, then you have something constantly draining the battery.

Go to the fuse panel and remove and re-install each fuse one at a time from every circuit. You may have to close the interior light door switch by pushing it with something while you are getting to the fuses so the circuit is in the off state all the time. Everything has to remain off.

When the light goes off when you removed a fuse, that is the circuit which is loading the battery. Check the fuse description for the circuit affected.

My guess is a trunk light that stays on even when the trunk is shut. If it is a lighting system fuse causing the problem, remove the trunk bulb and replace the fuse. If the light goes off, the trunk switch is defective keeping the light on all the time.

You can also place a battery charger on the battery (connect the negative back on the battery) and go and check the car in the dark. Is there a light on like a floor lighting in the interior? Do you have a light on under the hood that can't be seen during the day?

Always make sure you have a good charged battery, and that the terminals are really clean before you start analyzing the problem.
Does the alternator charge the battery? Check by measuring the volatge across the battery engine off, no charger connected; should be 12V or close.
Start the car, the meter should read 14V or so, but more than without engine running. If not, the alternator/charging circuit may be the real problem.

Courtesy interior lights E320Cdi 2003


I'm not 100%, but it could be a dodgy contact, on the button, which engages/disengages, as you open and shut the door.
Make sure that they all move freely, and aren't missing any pieces.
Hope that's some help.

1991 Dodge Dynasty interior dome lights won't shut off


First, check the dimmer switch (should be the same as the headlight switch) and make sure it is not turned all the way to the right as that will turn on the overhead light.
If you are sure the door switch is fine, then I would replace the dimmer switch.

Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on


You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.

2006 Pontiac G6 interior lights do not work.


Because you have a 10amp fuse out. Look in your book for the fuse diagram. It will show you where the fuse is located for the interior and door lights. The fuses are located in your glove box (right hand side).
