My gx470 dash light keeps coming on showing the all the car doors are open while I'm driving

Might have broken wiring in one of the door switches. Check wiring that runs along the door frame. They are inside a rubber boot/insulation. Most common area where they break due to constant open/close.

What is Warning yellow light triangle with exclamation mark appears when all doors are shut.?

Check the drivers manual to see what the light means, I think the boot light switch wants adjusting or is loose, causing the light on the dash to light up.

Light on dash shows a door open but boot light stays on all the time but i cant find the switch any where on the boot

This switch is located on the door latch inside of the door. This is a common problem and the dealer may have issued a recall for this problem, and may even fix it for free. If not then any decent mechanic can fix this for you.

The light on my dash saying the door is open wont

they have little pin switches on the inside of the door jar's check all these are pushing in and then back out when the door is open, they stick internally sometimes and you have to wd-40 them to free them up.

Also is the door light the same one for the boot? or is that another light? if it is a shared light for both then check the boot lid underside and the small panel on the bottom where your knees would be ensure these are all clean and have a good contact.

If no joy please get back to me.

1999 trans am passenger window not working where are fuses and relays..drivers side works

Drivers side on the side of the dash. When you open the drivers door you will see it on the side ,it will be position # 15 and its a circut breaker which means if the drivers side works the passenger one will as well.. They both use the same circut breaker. I suggest checking the wires in the rubber boot between the passenger door and the body in the door jamb area the wires are light blue and the other is tan if my memory serves me correctly. good luck

Rear hatch door won't lock dash light showing

You need to tighten the lock mech on the boot lid. this will close the boot just enough more to turn the light on. It's no biggy, you might need a star driver depending on bolt head. move it into the boot lid approx 4mm to start. then 1mm until 10mm. if no joy then it may be the sensor.
All the best
