Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on

Toyota Camry 1991 Ultima
I had a flat battery because the door lights stay on. I slammed each door but it doesnt go off. I looked at the manual and the fuse (no.5- Dome 7.5A)that is suppose to control the interior lights, personal lights, trunk room light ignition switch, clock and open door warning light has a black plastic fuse in it so in a sense it doesnt have a fuse.
At the moment I am disconnecting the car battery, but how can I fix this?
The warning light for the trunk door of my 2002 Kia Optima stays on all the time. It's running my battery down, but the battery still tests good and can be easily recharged. I've had it charged 3 times to start the car, so I need to figure out how to get that warning light to go off. My garage charges a lot for any work on the electrical system, so I'd rather get rid of the warning light if that would sove the problem.

Replace the door ajar switch that is defective, short answer. But the issue here is any of the doors can cause the problem, since in order to replace this tiny switch the door panel must be removed to access the door latch the smart thing to do is have the dealer scan the BCM (body control module) and see which switch is causing the problem. Cost will be about $300.00 depending on where you live

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: car dies when driving,check engine light comes on.

There is a good chance it could be your fuel pump , however if the check engine light is coming on and the dealer cant tell you what is wrong , try a different dealer or another shop. Second opinions never hurt.

The relay (fuse type thing located under the hood) was good as well. If that is the case then the motor is the issue. or the switch itself.

SOURCE: Can't get car out of park!!

This may seem like a silly solution but it's worth a try if it gets you out of this jam. I believe the Kia has a safety feature where it won't let you shift the car out of park unless the break peddle is fully depressed. Try stomping on the break peddle while you start the car. Then see if it will let you shift out of park. If this doesn't work try pumping the break peddle a few times and try it again. If this doesn't work check the fuse box. Maybe the fuse for the actuator in the gear shift lever that lets you take it out of park is burnt out. I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: my 2006 kia optima airbag indicator light stays on

my advise to you is not to attempt a repair to the airbag system yourself. The airbag module can be set off by static electricty & goes off with the force of a shotgun blast

If you look at the ignition very well, you see; Off, Acc, On, Start. Make sure the key is on the Off position then all the light will go off. I guess it is on Acc now, so try and turn it off.

Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on

You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.

91 toyota camry door ajar light stays on along with the chime

Probably a faulty door switch. Are you familiar with what I'm talking about. Little push like switches that the doors push on as they close, usually on door post by latch end, or sometimes in jamb of door at hinge end.
