There are two relays that keep accessory power on after you turn the key off and close the door. One of them may be stuck on.
You may need a shop manual to find and test them.

Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

SOURCE: 2002 Cadillac DeVille wont start (even w/new battery!)

well first off, check the glove box light blub, make sure it shuts off when you close the door, check it by pressing the switch with your finger to make sure it shuts off, also check under the hood for the light there if there is one, pull the bulb, and the same thing for any bulb in the trunk, then check again after a day to see if the battery dies, if it is dying while the vehicle is not running then it is the battery, if it is dying after it is running then it is the alt. you can check that also tho with a multimeter set to the DC volts setting, place the black end <the ground to any grounded area> and the red end <the hot lead to the back of the alt. > it should be reading higher then 12 volts, normally should be a higher reading then 12 volts... if you are getting a lower reading or just 12 volts then the alt. is bad and needs to be replaced...hope this helps you out...

SOURCE: doors are open no dome

Check your Door Jamb Switch. When you open your Door, the door jamb switch activates the Dome Light.

Can't get dome lights on when door is opener even with override switch off?


The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights

The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
Important: If the liftgate is opened after all the modules go to sleep, the dome light will not come on. The liftgate ajar switch input to the BCM will not wake up the BCM once it has gone to sleep, so the dome light will not come on. Once the BCM gets an input to wake it up, from remote keyless entry (RKE) or a door handle, the dome light will turn on when the liftgate is opened.
If the driver inadvertently leaves any interior lamp ON, the BCM will turn it OFF after a 20 minute time-out.
The courtesy lamps will turn OFF immediately if the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or approximately 20 seconds after all doors are closed.
The courtesy lamps are controlled by the body control module (BCM). Inputs from the dome lamp switch and the door ajar switches are monitored by the BCM. When a door ajar switch is closed, or the dome lamp switch is turned to the ON position, the BCM supplies the B+ for the courtesy lamps.
With out a factory Tech2 scan tool or equivalent an knowing how these systems work ,you best bet is to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop !

Front area dome lights won't turn off killing battery life. where is the relay for this?


Can you manually turn them off by moving the selector switch on the dome to "off" position? If not, the length of time that the dome lights were on may have melted the selector switch and you cannot turn them off except by removing the bulb...and replacing the switch or dome light.......

How do I turn the inside ligts off in my 1992 buick skylark (dome light)


Take a close look at the picture below.
mustgo_85.jpg

This is the dimmer switch.
It's also control on / off function.
=======
In addition to this switch on the dashboard there are pin switch on each door.
Check and make sure all the pin switches are OK.

A damage pin switch will keep the dome light on.
If this is the case then remove the dome light bulb unit you has time to to repair the damage pin switch.

1981 gmc 4 x4 keeps blowing fuze park ligts dont work? grounding out but be nice to have a schematic It takes a 20 amp fuze put a 25 in it the front park ligts came on for only a few seconds then blew....


My 87 GMC did the same thing. Check the ground wires that screw into the radiator support on each side. The right side ground wires were close to the battery on my truck and over the years corroded the ground wires.

When door's are open or radio is playing while the car is not running it kill's the battery.The altenater is good and so is the battery.


How long are you talking about?

Radio, and the inside dome light, use electricity.

f you are talking 15-20 minutes, then I'd say your battery is not holding a good charge.

If you are talking 8 hours, then, can't necessarily expect the battery to hold up that long.

Not sure where in-between those two numbers you should consider it a problem. However, you should have an option to turn off the dome light and save battery power.

Also, repeated drainings of the battery like this can cause a battery to fail.

(My wife once ran the seat heaters on my Tahoe with the engine off to stay warm while she waitied for someone in the store, and then was shocked when it would not start.)

Interior dome light stays on when driving.


Sounds like the dome light has been turned on using the switch on the dash. Most of the time the dash dimmer switch is set up so that if the dimmer is in the maximum position, the dome light can be turned on. If the dome light has been turned on like this, it still will turn off after some time to save your battery. Then when you unlock the door with the remote, it goes back to the same state it was when it was left in - "ON". Check for this switch on the dash, and roll it to get it off of the "ON" position.
