Question about 1994 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I have a 1994 Cadillac Sedan Deville and the interior lights won't turn off

I opened and shut one of the rear doors and that's when the problem began. I think there may be a sensor there but I can't find it, don't know what fuse to yank. Drained the battery so now it's on the battery charger and the lights are back on.

AS A SHORT TERM SOLUTION , TAKE THE BULBS OUT OF THE LIGHT , YOU CAN DO WITHOUT IT ON TILL ITS SORTED .
BUT CHECK THE PIN SWITCHES IN THE DOOR PILLARS , SOMETIMES THEY STICK IN WITH WEAR AND THIS WILL CAUSE THEM TO NOT RESPOND AND WILL DRAIN THE BATTERY OVER NIGHT. SPRAY WD40 AROUND ALL THE 4 DOOR PILLAR SWITHES .

Testimonial: "Thank you! I don't know why I didn't think of WD-40 sooner, between it and duct tape very few problems go unsolved :-) I went around twice saturating everything and the light went out. Thanks for the great suggestion!"

SOURCE: interior dome lights wont activate wh en doors

If none of the interior door lights work, check the fuse, and check the bulb. If they are both ok, then you may have a bad relay or switch but you will have to trace the wiring which is a pain.
