Fuse #26 should be a 10 amp unit that controls among other things, the interior lamps. Good Luck.

SOURCE: door ajar and dome lghts

Probably a door switch, check them first. Go to each door with a can of penatrating oil, find the switch in the jam, give it a shot and work the button manually until they're all freed up. Watch the light while you do this to eliminate which one's causing the problem. Please post your results.

You have to remove the right front inner fender plastic liner to access the horns. To get to the bolt that holds them you have to remove the battery and tray.

It looks like one of the plungers on the switch at one of your doors has broken off. If not it is in your main switch (I doubt it tho)

2003 Chevrolet tracker has a clicking relay when car is off. kills battery, interior dome light stays on, sound stops when lights are turned on

try locating the relay and identify its purpose.relays have two power sources but require the delivery of ground to switch,this ground is supplied from te vehicles pcm or ecm.relay could be faulty if its a time delayed relay it may be "sticking" and not stopping the draw from power source. but keep in mind that GMs are notorious for the body control module to fail.(this module may be integrated into the PCM.but may be a independent unit{{found under drivers seat in most full size SUV and PU after 1999.}} have u attempted disconnecting the battery for about 10min.? this may reset and correct your issue.

95 buick lesabre door jam button that turns dome light on and off

The complexity of the problem depends upon whether your Buick has lights with or without illuminated entry. In the former, a remote accessory control module is used in addition to an interior lamps relay position F circuit which could have a sticking relay. The "simpler" circuit has no remote accessory control module.

Where is the smart junction box located and what does it control?

The 2003 Expedition smart junction box was formerly called a GEM module in previous years. It has relays that control your keyless entry codes, the relays that control the dome lights and the delayed radio shutoff as well as other functions.

On a 2003 Expedition, the sjb (smart junction box) is located on the inside passenger's side kick panel below the glove box. It is most easily accessed by opening the glove box and squezzing the limiting tabs on each side so the glove box can open fully and tilt forward. It is approximately 6" long by 4" tall and about 1 3/4" thick. The part number on the label will be 2L1T-15K602-AN or similar for 2003 Expeditions.

Where is the dome light switch on 2003 neon ? The dome light does not come on when the front driver side door is open. There is no visible dome light switch in the door jam like most vehicles. Where is it...

The dome lamp receives power from the 10 amp micro fuse located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) on the M1 circuit. This circuit is HOT at all times. The ground path for the lamp is provided in two different ways.

One way is through the door ajar switches. Circuit M2 connects to all the door ajar switches from the dome lamp. The switches are case-grounded to the body. When a door is opened, the plunger in the switch closes, completing a path to ground.

The second ground path is through the headlamp switch. Circuit M2 is spliced in with the door ajar switches. When the operator turns the headlamp switch to the dome lamp ON position, a ground path is provided through the switch on the Z1 circuit. This ground terminates at the instrument panel left center support.

The time delay relay is used to allow a time-ON function for the ignition switch lamp. Power for the relay is received on the M1 circuit from the 10 amp fuse located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC ).

When a door is opened, or the headlamp switch is moved to the dome lamp position, a ground path is provided for the relay on the M2 circuit. This energizes the relay, closing the contacts. When the relay contacts are closed, power is provided through the relay to the M50 circuit.

The M50 circuit supplies current to the ignition switch lamp in the steering column. Ground for the lamp is provided on the Z3 circuit. This circuit splices with the glove box lamp, the ash receiver lamp, and the PRNDL lamp. The Z3 circuit terminates at the instrument panel left center support.

So, I would check the time delay relay since it supplies power to the circuit. Also, check for a good ground at the instrument panel left center support.

The interior lights and running board lights stay

Check your DOME light switch. There are 3 positions. Completely OFF even with doors open, ON with doors shut so you can read while parked, NORMAL for the lights to come on only when the doors are open.

Your headlight switch will also turn everything ON inside when it is turned completely to one side. Just twist this switch a little towards center if this is on.

Turn off the engine and put the alarm the dome lights don't shut off, when start the engine the light keep on for about 3 to 5 min.

I have the same year and My windows,interior lights and radio stop working randomly, I was told by the dealer and mechanics that the problem is the accessory delay relay. It appears thatYou have to remove the right front inner fender plastic liner to accessicon1.png the horns. To get to the bolt that holds them you have to remove the battery and tray. To get to it, I looked it up and found it for about $9 when my mechanic and Ford wanted $80 and $25 I will try this myself and keep posted what happens

Yes, it sounds like it burned the contact points in the dome light delay. They were never really designed to have the lights left on for that long (and being 13 years old, it has already had some usage before this)
The part you need is PRC9948G (I would double check that with your dealer).
It is the delay courtesy relay.
