You have a bad door ajar switch, They are built into the latches of all the doors. Try spraying wd-40 in all the door latches for a couple of days. If this doesn't work you will have to replace the bad one. but without a lot a searching, you will need a computer scanner to figure out which one.

Why wont interior lights will not turn off on toyota highlander


If your interior lights are not turning off, you probably have the override switch turned on. This is located in front headliner area and has a light icon on it. This switch forces the interior lights on, even when all of your doors are shut, or if you are driving.

Interior lights won't shut off


Some vehicles have a twist dashlight control and when it is turned to the extreme position it turns on the interior lights. Other vehicles have a separate switch for interior lights right on the dome light. Yet another type is a dome light with 3 selections that command the dome light to be on fulltime, or to be off fulltime, or the normal door opening triggering the switch.

Provided the problem is not any of the above, you could have a bad doorjam pin switch which is not separating its contacts when the door is closed. I would look at the drivers switch first as it has the most use.

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Check the dash light dimmer switch. Perhaps it's set to have the interior lights on, when you turn the dash lights all the way bright, turning it a little more turns the interior lights on. Let us know how you make out.
