SOURCE: passenger door won't open

most common problem with replacing door handles on these is that you will encounter allignment probs for main catch which this sounds like. if you attempt to open from the inside then try putting lots of pressure on it till it should give way. once you acvhieve this, try looking at the very end of the door with the catch on. if you take a key and roll the latch till it locks and lake sure it is not too far into the mechanism, dont worry simply pulling door handle will disengage it, but once it is shut like this it is extremely difficult to undo.

SOURCE: Malibu dome entry/exit light does not turn on when doors open.

My wife showed me that one- the doom lite in center of roof is 3 postision, slide it to passanger side then back to center. Its a poorly made switch but once set in middle the lites will come on/off with door openning/closing. Be aware it dims delays when going off, not immediate.

SOURCE: 2004 Chevy Silverado had dead battery after 5 days...

I had the exact same problem! On the third battery and the third time in our local Chevrolet Garage...they told me they couldn’t find any problems. My response was, “this vehicle isn’t dependable and it’s staying here until you fix it.” Well what do you know about a week later and a $100 deductable on my GMPP warranty they found the problem. It was an accumulation of three issues but mainly one.
1. The LoJack system that a different Chevrolet Dealership installed was drawing a constant 20mA when the vehicle was off. Within LoJack specs. Normal.
2. The Prodigy trailer brake controller was drawing 15mA. Within specs. Normal.
3. And the MAIN CAUSE of the whole problem was the HVAC controller never turned off. It was continually drawing 35mA until they pulled the fuse. They had to order another HVAC controller which would have cost $287 and a weeks’ worth of shop hours to investigate the problem. Thank GOD they only charged me the deductible on my warranty.

SOURCE: 1999 Chev Silverado Door Light Switch

the actuator for the dome light is actually located inside the lock mechanism. Have you checked to make sure the dome light override button is in the out position?

My sister has a 2000 chevy cavalier b4 the door chime and the interior dome light worked now they both dont, we replaced the bulb and fuse to no avail and I have no clue what's wrong with the chime.


the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

Why would my van radio stay on after I turn the car off and open the door?


Does the dome light come on when you open the door? It should work off the same trigger.

In my 2007 ford crown victoria the dome light doesn't turn on when the doors open


If the lamp is good, then the door switch, is not

Try the passenger door to see if that works

Also most vehicles will have a delayed acc relay to keep
the radio on when the key is turned off & when you open
either front door it will go off, if the switches are good,as
well as turn on the dome light

My dome lights stay on for about 15 to 20 minutes and my radio shuts off now when i turn the car off, it normally stays on when car is turned off until you open a door.


This is normal...........The dome light will give you time to collect your belongings and the radio or music of your choice will stay playing for about 15 min unless the door opens..............It is just the way cadi rolls........Hope this helps.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on


I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
