Just because the headlight warning comes on does not mean that the interior light is on the same circuit through the door switch.

There are also some perameters that can be set using a scan tool from the dealer, or what's known as a Vag-Com that many VW owners have.

There is a switch that is activated when u open the door, it is called the courtesy light switch or the door ajar switch, u will need to test it for continuity, most likely it is defective.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time


Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

Door ajar light will not go off in Holden RA Rodeo


the switches may be ok but the wire to the switch is a live wire and earths out when the door is opened. allowing the light to come on. Check that there is no rust around the switch that will give a circuit . Check that the metal end of the wire is not touching metal any where.

Warning light does not go on when door is open and lights left on 2006 Honda CRV Thanks


Is the overhead interior light switch turned off with the effect that when the doors are opened the interior light doesn't come on. Alter the switch setting and open the door: if the interior light comes on then you should see the warning light come on if the vehicle lights are left on. Failing that it's likely to be a faulty doorswitch or the cable and connector to the doorswitch has become detached. Try unscrewing the doorswitch and withdrawing it from the vehicle body and check that the wire is still connected. Check using a multimeter that the switch operates electrically when open and closed. Replace or repair as appropriate.

Where is the relay / speaker that the audible warning comes from?


go into the fuse box and remove the interior light fuse.there is a dome over ride so the interior lights do not come on when the door is open on most cars ,it is usually with the dash attenuator switch that controls the instrument cluster.the other option is to remove the door switch and short the two wires together

1997 Toyota corolla - warning noise when lights left on - not working on drivers side!


The ground circuit for the driver side door switch is compromised, or the door switch is bad. Try this: Remove the black rubber cover from the door swich. Using a 10 millimeter wrench or socket, loosen & tighten the switch retention bolt. See if the dome light flickers. If so, the ground on the switch is bad, & just needs cleaned up. If not, remove the switch, and touch the wire behind the switch to the body,or the bolt hole. If the dome light lights, you need a door switch. Your problem is entirely in the door switch/ground/wiring. Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
