Question about 1991 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

Dome/interior lights on my 1991 Dodge Grand Caravan come on in Dimmer Position for Dash Lights

The dome/interior lights come on whenever the dash board dimmer switch is out of the off position even when all of the doors are closed. The light should only come on when the switch is slid all the way to the end (right). I pushed the door switches in and out to make sure they at least moved except the rear hatch one which I could not find. Would I have to replace the entire headlight switch or is it possible to open it up and move contacts that may be out of place after all this time?

SOURCE: courtesy lights don't work

You will need to test the Body Control Module, it controls the lights.

Switch is inside the door. by the lock mechanism ( door latch) If you remove door panel you should be able to reach wire it runs outside the door. Interior lights ground threw that wire so it is ether grounded or the switch is bad

Interior dome lights stay on.


Make sure that the thumbwheel that makes dash lights brighter/dimmer is not all the way to bright. That will turn on dome light. Check fuse block for dome light relay, pull out the relay and see if light goes out, if so try replacing the relay. Possible welded contacts? If all that doesn't work you will have to try each door switch and see if you have a bad one.

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

1997 Dodge caravan. Dome lights(2) and tailgate courtesy lights(2) do not turn on. with either 1.opening the tailgate; 2. opening any other door ; 3. using the in dash switch. Trouble shooting: 1 Checked...


Not sure about your car but on my KIA the dome and rear gate light have switches on the light assemblies themselves for on/off all time/on with door. Check to see if you have same. Also, there may be another "dash" switch, typically on the dash dimmer switch which may be turned all the way from dim to off. Check your dash dimmer switch. Relays are typically in a fuse box under the hood.

1991 Dodge Dynasty interior dome lights won't shut off


First, check the dimmer switch (should be the same as the headlight switch) and make sure it is not turned all the way to the right as that will turn on the overhead light.
If you are sure the door switch is fine, then I would replace the dimmer switch.

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.
