    Hi I have looked all round the door frame since this problem started a few days ago and no button can be found, I`ve owned this car for 6 trouble free years, thanks for your response

    wonderful response I have been out to the car and it appears that this reply is correct as when I moved the latch/lock located in the door by hand to the fully closed position the light went out so its buy a new door latch assembly for me thanks regards Tony

My 1999 Tahoe dome lights do not work, but there is power there,bulbs are OK. Floor courtsey lights stay on and cannot turn off...Do you have any solutions?

the dome lights may be good and have power but do they have a good ground if no this is an easy fix. just run a new ground wire or if you can find the broken wire repair the wire. as for the floor and courtsey lights check and make sure the dimmer switch on the head light switch is not turned up all the way if they are not then unplug the door triggers (the little buttons your door hits to turn the inside lights on and off

Random elec probs ( I suspect a ground issue) 1 garage door opener built into visor and sunroof and the two courtsey lights (map reading lights stop working. Both driver and passenger side (The lights tied...

Yup, grounding problem.
There is a grounding strap from the engine to the chassis. It is either loose, corroded, damaged, missing, or otherwise not making good contact with the engine or chassis. If you can't locate it, then ground has been using the "pigtail" wire coming off the negative battery side.
If you had the battery or cables services recently, then the wrong negative cable was installed. Installing a ground strap (AutoZone $8) from engine to chassis is better anyway.

My inside coursty and dome light stays on when i open the door. i took the fuse out to keep the battery from running down but the horn and back door latch works off of the same fuse. its a 1996 blazer.

There is a dome override switch located below the head lamp switch make sure it is in the off position - if it is ok - open the driver side door look on the side on the instrument panel for a little black plunger - that is the switch for the dome lamp and courtsey lamps if it is broken or not there this will cause the lights to stay on. It will have to be replaced if it is broken or missing.

Turning off the air bag chevrolet kalos

Are you talking about the passenger side? They sometimes have a switch to turn them off. The drivers side does not have an on off switch. Be careful working around air bags they can KILL YOU.

Courtesy light will not go off

Is the courtsey lamp knob turned on?

If not, it sounds like a bad door switch, courtesy light switch, or shorted wiring. Open the driver's side door and locate the door switch, it is usually near the hinges somewhere. Examine the switch and too see if any parts appear broken or snapped off. Rapidly push the switch in and out a few times and see if it has any effect on the lamp. Do the same with the passenger door switch. Also try rapidly turning the courtsy light switch knob on and off.

If you don't notice anything, you can try removing the switches and testing it with a multi meter or continuity meter. Both of these tools are available at an auto parts store if you do not own one. Let me know if you need help removing and testing the switch.
