SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

SOURCE: Radio, Key auto door lock/opener, interior lights not working.

Most likely is a fuse. There is a fuse box at the end of the right side of the dash. Open front passenger door and there is a cover that says fuses on the end of dash. There is also a fuse box located under the hood at the right front of engine compartment. It should have a cover with a round knob in the middle of it .Unscrew the knob to remove cover.

SOURCE: Where is the door contact switch?

Hiya
Check all 4 doors to see what works and doesn't work, be sure the interior domelight switch is set to turn on automatically when any door is open as well try the radio then open the 4 doors to see if it turns off...if your driver's side door don't work as you stated then that should be the door's "at fault".

GM built the door contact switch that's installed INSIDE the door-it's located inside the door striker/jamb area...it require removal of door trim to gain access.

However, you might want to try this visual inspection:
Check the thick wire harness located between the front-left door and door sill frame to see if any wire has been disconnected/cut or tampered with by previous owner.

SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.

Check the bulb, if it's intact then must be a fuse or broken wire. Use a multimeter & check continuity across all fuses if intact then trace wire back from light to switches etc

Radio, vantiy lights,fuel door release,interior light don't work.


Yeah sounds like it. You didn't specify the year, make, or model ! Cadillacs have 3 fuse boxes. One on the drivers fender under the hood, one under the drivers dash, and one in the truck on the drivers side.

My door chime does not ding when the key is in the ignition and the door is open


Do the interior lights come on when door is open? If not, you need to check driver's door jamb switch. The driver's door control module could also be the problem. If the interior light do come on, then I would suspect the ignition switch.
You haven't changed out the radio recently? All chimes go thru the radio.

You don't find much with the door jamb switches any longer. Its all done inside the door with the switches being on the door latch.
the radio should still be able to be turned off manualy ;)

My interior lights wont shut off and it drains the battery, how do i switch off the fuse so my battery doesnt die?


When you open the driver's side door, you will find a small switch located on the front of the door frame towards the engine compartment. If you push it, the lights should go off. If you push it and the lights don't go off, there is your problem - if the driver's door switch is okay, try the passenger side by doing the same thing.

If that doesn't work and you are sure that you have the panel switch set to off, then you may want to pull the bulb out of the interior light until you can get to the root cause.

You may not be able to pull the fuse without losing other functions too.
