My interior light won't come on in my 1999 Buick Lesabre. I have checked the bulb & the fuse. Can anyone help me with this problem? Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.


Courtesy Lights
The courtesy lights come on under the following conditions:
?€¢
Any door is opened.


?€¢
The interior lamp switch is in the ON position.


?€¢
The keyless entry transmitter unlocks the doors (illuminated entry).

When the key is removed from the ignition switch with all of the doors closed, the courtesy lights light for approximately 25 seconds before fading out.
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the IP fuse block CTSY LP/PWR MIR fuse 6A via CKT 640 (ORN) through the body control module (MALL) to the courtesy lights via CKT 1732 (ORN). The MALL provides a ground through CKT 156 (WHT) for the courtesy lights under the following conditions:
?€¢
The MALL receives an input from a door being opened.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the interior lamp being turned ON.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the doors being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.

The courtesy lamps then light.
When the courtesy lights are activated by opening and closing a door, the courtesy lights will remain on for approximately 25 seconds before fading out after all of the doors are closed. If the ignition switch is turned to START or RUN within the 25 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out. If a door is left open, the MALL removes battery positive voltage (B+) to the courtesy lights after 10 minutes. When the courtesy lights are activated by the interior lamp switch, the lights remain on as long as the interior lamp switch is in the ON position. When the courtesy lights are activated by unlocking the doors using the keyless entry transmitter, the lights remain on for approximately 40 seconds. If the doors are locked using the keyless entry transmitter within the 40 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out.
Body Control Module (MALL) Diagnostic Mode
For a detailed explanation of the MALL module diagnostic mode, refer to Body Control Module Cell 51.

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

Interior lights


This is both a courtesy and safety issue on many high end vehicles. The light from the interior lights can cast enough light to get to front door and possibly show dangers in your path. And after first getting into you car and starting it, you can check the back seat for any unwanted hitchhikers. As for the 10 minute timer, I don't know if this can be adjusted. A Chiltons/Haynes repair manual for you car may have that answer, or, the Buick dealership shop foreman. Best of luck.

No interior lights come on when doors are opened. Very dim instrument panel lights.


theres probably a switch off to the left of the steering wheel (probably some sort of wheel looking switch for the brightness)

Engine will not CRANK


mcdevito75 here, My immediate thought is a dead battery, inside the car with the door open so the interior light is on, try to start the car if that interior light dims you have a dead battery if the light does not dim, clean the battery cables and suspect a faulty strater.

Dim interior lights, power locks wont work......


Try looking at your battery. Check the cables to make sure they are tight and clean. Brush the corrosion off with a wire brush. Now, if you have a wiring schematic, find the ground for the interior lights and clean it up too. Oh, put vasoline on it, and the battery cables, to keep them corrosion free. Check the other grounds in the car cabin too.

96 Chev Caprice Classic Interior lights won't shut off.


door pins may be bad, you doors may also be sagging at the hinges causing a bad connection, your lights will dim when you brake because of a draw on the battery, but it sounds like your pin switches are bad
