Just got my 2003 explorer sport trac dome light dont come on when you open the doors but they come on when you push the button to turn them on how do I get them to come on when I open the doors?????


The instrument cluster illuminates the interior lamps when an unlock signal is received from the vehicle security module. The illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
  • 25 seconds have elapsed since the illuminated entry feature was activated and the interior lamp control is not activated (door ajar or courtesy lamp switch on).
  • The instrument cluster receives a request from the vehicle security module (remote transmitter lock button pressed) and the interior lamp control is not activated.
  • The ignition is in the RUN or START position and the interior lamp control is not activated.
The instrument cluster illuminates the courtesy lamps when any door is open or ajar. The courtesy lamps shuts off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps are not reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp signal is received.
The instrument cluster controls the courtesy lamps illuminated entry function by activating the battery saver relay.
The panel dimmer switch is integrated into the headlamp switch and controls the interior lamps by activating the instrument cluster through circuit 1034 (BK/WH).
The vehicle security module sends a signal to the instrument cluster on the UBP network circuit to indicate a request to turn the illuminated entry feature on or off.
The on-demand lamps, glove compartment assembly, homelink module, puddle lamps and illuminated vanity mirrors are controlled by the battery saver relay. The battery saver relay becomes active (relay coil is energized) when the instrument is in the awake mode, or in the sleep mode (relay coil is de-energized).

Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

The first thing would be to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also check with an enhanced scan tool to see if the BCM shows ajar switch data (open or closed ? Do you know about body electronics ?

Checked voltage where ?
The instrument control module (ICM) controls power to the power window system by activating or deactivating the delayed accessory relay.
Symptom Chart Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster module (ICM).
  • Accessory delay relay.
  • Driver window control switch.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test A .
Vehicles equipped with remote keyless entry (RKE) have an illuminated entry feature, which enables the instrument cluster module (ICM) to illuminate the interior lamps (and if equipped, the puddle lamps in the exterior mirrors) when an unlock signal is received from the vehicle security module through the UBP network, or when any of the doors are opened. The ICM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry feature by activating the battery saver relay. When active, the illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 ECU is Defective Instrument Cluster Module REFER to Section 413-01 . B2499 Courtesy Lamp Output Failure Instrument Cluster Module Go To Pinpoint Test A .

If not your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Where is the instrument panel relay located?


There is no relay for the instrument panel. The dash lights and interior lights have fuses. The instrument panel itself is illuminated by the Central Power Module.

Will not shift into gear from park with motor running, also cab lights and electric windows not working. Will start from neutral and then shift into gears.


Might want to start with checking your stop lamps & the fuse for the stop lamps.

The shift interlock is part of the stop lamp circuit on the 97-03 MY trucks, and without working stop lamps, the truck does not come out of park,

Not too sure what you mean by cab lights, is this the interior dome lamps or the instrumentation illumination ?

I have a 2004 sebring that i bought new. the instrument cluster lights dont work, i checked interior fuses number 7 and 11 that relate to the instrument cluster illumination. they seem to be fine.


If the fuses are good there should be a dial that adjusts the brightness of the dash panel.If this dial doesn't work then the bulbs for the dash panel might be blown out.

Dash lights & tail lights are not working but every thing else is need help to locate fuse for it 2002 ford f150


The parking lamp circuit feeds the instrument illumination fuse

The parking lamp fuse is engine compartment Fuse # 6
After the main headlamp switch the cab fuse panel fuse # 18 is the fuse for the instrument illumination.

Don't forget to turn the main headlamp switch to at least the park position when you test the fuse with a meter.

Digital odometer barely illuminates and is about


First thing to check is the interior light / dome light control. It is usually located to the left of your instrument panel (where your odometer is located). It you move this dial up or down it will control the intensity of interior lighting.

However, if that does not cure the issue, it is possible that you have a short somewhere, or a bad bulb for the instrument panel. At that point, I'd take it to your local repair facility and have them check it out. Changing interior lighting or testing for electrical failures can be a difficult task.
