Dome light comes on by itself long after door is closed

Hi I have a 2006 Saturn Vue, after shutting the driver door the light stays on for the perscribed amount of time.Later I went in the garage, it had come back on.These are the 2 lights top center(push on) in front of the sunroof.
I have the same problem with my 2001 Lincoln Continental. The dome lights come on by themselves, wearing down the battery.

    Today was the first time my 2005 vue did this, when I shut the door the two lights above the rear view mirror come on and stay on, when I shut the car off they stay on for 20 minutes and shut off, thankfully, due to the battery timer guard. what can I do besides see the dealer? Thanks

On the 01 Lincoln it has something to do with the keyless pad on the door press and hold button 9-0 till the green light around it goes out!

2006 Saturn, dome light turns itself on when it's parked.

The car might be "thinking" that one of the doors is ajar,
Check the spring switches in all the door frames to make sure that they are hooked properly, and doing their job. One way to do it is ( if the dome happens to be off) to close and open each door several times, to see if the bad switch stays open and turns the light on, even with the door closed
