    All fuses are fine both fuses and relays have been checked and are good. I can turn on the light switch and have no lights but when I pull the turn signal to go from dim to bright the bright lights will come on. Is it the pull switch turning the lights on or is it the switch in the steering colum that has the wipers, emerg flashers and brightr dim control? not sure

93 buick regal courtesy lights stay on when car is off

One of your door sensors (or trunk sensor) is signaling that it is open or the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, which turns on the dome and foot lamps. Try turning the dimmer switch all the way down. If this does not fix the problem you will have to get all the door sensors (and trunk sensor) tested to determine which one needs to be replaced.

I have a 94 dodge dakota and when it is cold my head lights don't turn on but the parking lights do i would than let it warm up for about 25 min before it does

I would have to say that this odd problem is due to the headlight relay under the hood sticking when it is VERY cold. There really can't be any other cause.
If this helps you, please remember to vote/comment. Good luck!

Are these interior lights our the headlights? If it is the interior lights, you should pull the dimmer switch and check for a bad connection especially the ground connection on the back side. If that is okay, you may need to buy a new switch. If it is the headlights, check for a bad relay.
