It sounds like there is a short in the switch that turns the interior lights on beside the headlight switch. You might be able to get a switch after market from your local auto parts store. Possibly with it being an 01, it would be a dealer item. Try calling parts store/dealer to see if you can locate one. Hope this is helpful. Please rate. Thanks

It's probably inside the door, built into the latch mechanism. I don't know for sure though.

What to do if your door ajar light and interior light won't go off if all your doors are closed


This problem is caused by one or more of the tiny micro switches that sense the door is latched being defective, The dealer can run a special scan of the body control system module and detect which switch is defective, each door has a switch attached to the door latch and this requires the door panel be removed and the rear glass channel taken out to replace the twist in switches, so knowing which switch is the problem can save allot of time and money, so the system scan is essential.

Interior lights stay on where is the relay located


Three things run the interior light
the two door jamb switches and the control from the headlamp switch
One is at fault
The door jamb switch is usually the problem on most
Simply remove the two and see if they are stuck in the open position. You can also tell once they are unplugged if the light goes off as well with any switch you check

Interior lighting stays on


First check your dimmer switch to make sure that you do not have it turned all the way up where it clicks.This is how you turn on your interiors lights in many cars.Second,Make sure there is nothing jamming your doors open,even slightly, and making your interior lights stay on.Third,if none of these are the culprit,check your doors switch inside the jamb where your door swivels out.It may be broken or not operating properly.Check the wiring that is insid the jamb.Many times when and if there is a rubber cover between the jamb and the door,the wiring can break and cause a short.Which in turn grounds out and may cause your lights to stay on or not at all.Hope this helps some;)

Interior Lights Circuit Description
By using a feature called inadvertent power control, the body control module (BCM) supplies power to all of the following components:
• The courtesy lamps
• The dome lamps
• The rear view mirror reading lamps
• The instrument panel compartment lamp
• The rear compartment lamp
The left front door ajar switch turns the interior lamps on through the BCM by grounding CKT 394. When the left front door is open, the switch is closed. This condition provides a ground and a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then grounds the following lamps through CKT 156 in order to turn the lamps on:
• The courtesy lamps
• The dome lamp
• The rearview mirror lamps
The right front door ajar switch and the rear door ajar switches turn the interior lamps on by grounding CKT 395 from the BCM.
When the ignition key is removed from the lock cylinder, the interior lamps remain on for approximately 40 seconds.
The BCM provides an interior lamps-on delay after a door is opened. The lamps remain on for approximately 40 seconds or until the ignition switch is turned to the ON position. The 40 second lamps-on delay reduces to 4 seconds if a door is opened within 2 minutes of the ignition switch being moved from the ON position. The interior lamps immediately turn off when the vehicle begins to move.
The dome lamp OFF-DOOR-ON switch controls the dome lamp. When the switch is in the OFF position, the dome lamp remains off. When the switch is in the DOOR position, the dome lamp lights when a door is opened by the BCM grounding CKT 156. When the switch is in the ON position, ground is supplied through CKT 750. The rear view mirror reading lamps are controlled by the rear view mirror reading lamps switch or through CKT 156 from the BCM.
Voltage is supplied at all times to the BCM through the INT LPS fuse. The BCM supplies voltage to the interior lamps through CKT 1732.

Battery Run Down Protection
When the ignition switch is in the OFF position, the BCM turns off the power to all of the interior lamps after 18-22 minutes.
The BCM will reset the inadvertent power control relay output when one of the following actions is performed:
• Open or close a door.
• Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
• Turn off any interior lamps that may be on.
• Press the power door lock switch/keyfob button.
• Press the decklid release keyfob button.

My 2001 pontiac sunfire dome lights, and reading lights dont work. when i open the door there is also no beep sound. check fuses they seem to be ok. what else should i check?


hello,
is this problem only with the drivers door? or all doors?
if it is just one door you should check the door open courtesy light switch located in the door jamb (it will be in the jamb towards the hood only accessible with the door open) its a small cylinder shaperd switch that sometimes sticks due to corrosion. if its stuck the car has no idea the door is open. if it is stuck try and free it up with some pliers and lubricate with some wd40. another thing could be that the lights are burnt out. check this by turnig your dome lights on manually by turning the headlight switch (this adjusts your gauge lights) all the way until it clicks ...your dome light should be on if not repalce bulb and try again.
As far as the door ajar beep...do you have an aftermarket stereo installed...because the stock radio makes the chime throught the drivers side speaker...
i hope this helps
