Courtesy and dome lights won't shut off. Could the courtesy light relay be the problem and where is it located? I already replaced the control timer module which didn't help.

the courtesy and dome lights are operated by switches in the door frame look around the opening and look for a small black button
that button presses back in and breaks the circuit thereby putting out the light
if it is earthed ( grounded) at the back then the lights will stay on
there is one for each door and any one will keep the lights on

Dome light won't cut off after door is shut

Adjust the dome light switch by moving the switch lever to a different position. If this does not work, either the dome light switch is defective or wires inside the dome light came loose and caused a short across the switch itself.

2006 chevy trailblazer dome light will not shut off

There is no fuse marked for dome light's in the rear fuse box. The BCM - body control module controls the dome / courtesy light's .
The body control module (BCM) monitors the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit in order to determine when the courtesy/dome lamps should be illuminated. When the BCM senses that the courtesy lamp switch signal circuit is grounded when the switch is activated, the BCM will directly illuminate the courtesy/dome lamps.

You should possibly think about taking your vehicle to a qualified repair shop !
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, observe the courtesy lamp switch parameter in the body control module (BCM) data list.
Does the scan tool display INACTIVE?
YES - Go to Step 3
NO - Go to Step 4
Activate the courtesy lamp switch.
With the scan tool, observe the courtesy lamp switch data parameter.
Does the courtesy lamp switch data parameter change state?

• Test the courtesy lamp switch for sticking in the ON position.
• Perform a visual inspection for loose or poor connections at all related components. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...

To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Dome light stays on.

The door ajar/courtesy light switch that is mounted to the door latch inside the door is sticking, this is a very common issue with all late model Fords from 90's up.
