Location of front door switch, 2001 A6 2.7T ?

The interior light sometimes doesn't come on when the front driver's door is open. The light works for all other doors. I've looked all over and can't find the door switch. Can you tell me where the switch is located and any info on how to remove it ?
Thanks.

Where is the location to replace overhead lights fuse in 2003 oldsmobile aurora


Rear fuse box. INT LP 10 amp . there is also INT LP relay in the same rear fuse box .
Fuse Block - Rear
Under the rear seat, on the left side of the floor pan
The INT LP fuse in the fuse block - rear supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open switch contacts of the INT LP relay. The INT LP fuse also supplies battery positive voltage to the INT LP relay control circuit. The fuse block - rear also supplies battery positive voltage to the relay control circuit for the front courtesy lamp. The door modules communicate on a simple bus interface (SBI). When you open any door, the switch contacts of the door open switch close. When a door open signal circuit is grounded, that door module sends a message to the drivers door module (DDM) in order to indicate that a door is open. The DDM sends a class 2 message to the rear integration module (RIM) in order to indicate which door is open. The RIM activates the INT LP relay in order to provide battery positive voltage to the interior courtesy lamps. When any front door is opened, the RIM will energize the FRT CTSY lamp relay grounding the I/Pcourtsey lamps at G302. Depending on which doors are opened, front or rear, the proper interior courtesy lamps illuminate. The RIM provides a pulse width modulated ground to all interior courtesy lamps for the interior lights theater dimming feature. Some of the courtesy lamps are also used as reading lamps, each reading lamp may be manually turned on or off using it's own respective switch

Where is the interior light relay on 2001 ford windstar


Your interior lights are controlled by the GEM - generic electronic module !
Battery Saver The battery saver relay is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM) and is located in the fuse junction panel. The battery saver relay is designed to supply B+ voltage to the following:
  • dome and map lamp switches
  • visor lamps
  • glove box lamp switch
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior courtesy lamp relay
  • delayed accessory relay
The function of the battery saver relay is to prevent excessive battery drain by interior lighting circuits. The GEM supplies a ground signal to the battery saver relay anytime one of the wake-up inputs of the GEM is activated to operate the battery saver relay. A wake-up command is sent when:
  • any door becomes ajar or is opened or closed.
  • the ignition key is inserted or removed.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to RUN.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to ACC.
  • a wake-up request is received from the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module (if equipped).
  • The GEM will maintain the ground input with ignition in RUN or for 40 minutes from the last input activation with ignition in the OFF position. After 40 minutes the ground signal is discontinued.
This de-engergizes the battery saver relay preventing B+ voltage supply to the controlled switches and circuits.
  • Courtesy Lamp On Continuously
  • Short to power.
  • Damaged switch.
  • Generic electronic module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test AF .
PINPOINT TEST AF: COURTESY LAMPS ON CONTINUOUSLY AF1 PRELIMINARY CHECKS
  • Check connections for clean tight fit.
  • Check for loose or damaged wires.
Do components and wiring check OK? Yes No GO to AF2 . SERVICE or REPLACE as required. GO to AF2 . AF2 CHECK CIRCUIT 53 (BK/LB)
  • Remove interior lamp relay.
  • Measure voltage at interior lamp relay connector Pin 87, Circuit 53 (BK/LB).
Is voltage greater than 0 volts? Yes No SERVICE Circuit 53 (BK/LB) for short to B+. RESTORE vehicle. RETEST system. GO to AF3 . AF3 CHECK CIRCUIT 434 (LB/BK)
  • Measure resistance between interior lamp relay connector Pin 85, Circuit 434 (LB/BK) and ground.
Is resistance 5 ohms or less? Yes No SERVICE Circuit 434 (LB/BK) for short to ground. RESTORE vehicle. RETEST system. REPLACE interior lamp relay. RESTORE vehicle. RETEST system. Interior lamp relay is located in the Instrument panel fuse box .

I have a 2005 jetta and the dome lights don't come on when any doors open


I assume if the interior light didn't work at all you would have said so.

When the interior light works but the courtesy light function doesn't the culprit is usually the door switch or switches.
Sometimes located at or near the striker plate the pillar at the door hinge end is a more common location for the switch to be (usually) secured with a single screw, though sometimes a rubber cover must be removed to access the screw.

The function of the switch is to ground a single wire when the door is opened. Sometimes a switch must be replaced and sometimes a thorough clean and a spot of lubrication will put matters right.

Where are the fuse and relays for a 2001 Nissan


Relays are located in many places on vehicles. You would have to know what relay in particular you were looking for to find it's exact location. Fuses are easy to find, they are in the compartment right in front of your left knee on the lower section of the front of the dash, the drivers side of the dash between the door and the dash or sometimes under the hood. There is a door that pulls off to reveal the fuses, the door will have a diagram of the fuse locations. Here is a link from the internet with more information.

I have a 2001 Chevy Express 3500 15 passenger van. A few months ago the power windows started going out, as in the would not work but if I opened the driver door just right it would work. Now they have...


The usual source for the window problem is the wiring between the inside front door and the kick panel where the wires run in a harness and are usually rubber booted. Everytime the door opens and closes the wires are bent back and forth and they break.

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.

My interior lights will not turn off the dome light and rear bay light


check your door jamb switches to make sure they are shutting off the interior lights. They are part of the door latch.

All models have a lamp switch (13713) located in the driver's door latch that activates the interior lamp when the front door (20124) is opened.
I believe right door has one too, and maybe the hatch latch too
