Have you tried the switch on the dash that turns them on? Are door switches adjusted properly?

SOURCE: Where is the courtesy light delay switch located

The courtesy lights as well as the map lights (located on the bottom side of the rearview mirror) will come on when you open a door (unless it's bright outside) and will remain lit for approx 30 seconds and then will turn off. This is verbatim from my '92 Corvette owners manual - The map lights can be turned on and off, but there isn't a delay switch, persay. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: i have a 91 corvette.

Hi.

The door switch must be tested either reading volts when the problem happens, or disconnecting switch wiring. If the stereo is involved in the problem the wiring at the back of the stereo must also be checked. In there you find a 12V memory wire that is always hot, if that is shorting the light may come on at random times.

If the switch is OK and there is no short test the relay and the diode module located under the passenger dash. Testing is done reading volts when the problem happens to check what wiring is getting 12V to lamp.

Here the relay picture, the relay is the 4th from the right. Relays can be tested by swapping them (e.g with the fog lamp relay, if fog lamps come on and dome light works, then relay was the problem):

What is causing the security light to flash after car is shut off along with courtesy lights on


There are little switches in the door jams that depress when you shut the door. One of these is broken or disconnected....no other real possibility here.

Battery drain


There is a module called the delayed entry module, it keeps the courtesy lights on for about 30-40 seconds when the door is opened, by what you say that may not be the problem, without the load of the light bulbs the timer will not work in the module, this throws off many techs. Have you had the battery tested?? even if it is new it can have a problem, I put three new batteries from Kragen in my Corvette in 1 year, I also thought the system had a drain, but it was the battery every time, finally bought a Delco battery and never had an issue again.
