Question about 1997 Mercury Sable

Interior lights not on when I open the door

When I open the car door, the inside lights don't come on. I can manually turn on the ceiling lights. The dash and door has lights.
Also, the car has no heat and I wanted to use a cigarrette adapted heater/defroster to keep me warm, but the cigarrette lighter doesn't work. Help!!

Fuse was out for the lighter--heat may be a thermostat-will find out--no solution for the light situation, yet.

Inside light work when turn on but want work when door is open"


I'm fairly sure the overhead light has a switch where you can turn the door circuit off. You might want to check on that.
If the symbol on the dash does not come on when the door is opened, the problem could be the sensor in the door.

The middle light on my ceiling inside the car will not turn off


there is no manual switch for this light, aside from removing the bulb.

if the light is staying illuminated, you likely have a problem with one of your door switches. are you experiencing any warning chimes like an open door? if so, look towards the drivers door. if not, look towards the passenger side. good luck!

Sounds to me like you got a wiring problem, a bad earth connection, its earthing out through your interior light, hence your light glows dimmly. The door open switch works by creating a direct to earth connection when door opened. Locate the switch, either in the door or a plunger switch that the door closes onto. Take it out & clean it.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up


If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.
