Is there a switch on the door jam for the interior lights? If not it may have a switch in the door handle mech. If the switch is in the door jam, remove it and check the switch with a multi-meter. Remember its DC voltage.

When I turn off the ignition the radio, air and lights stay on. This is running my battery down. IS there a short somewhere or what might be the problem?


The 2000 Fords should allow the radio to continue to play until you open the driver's door. The lights may stay on for 1 or 2 minutes after you leave the car (close the driver's door) depending on the lighting/security feature of your vehicle.

Your battery should be strong enough to allow these items to remain on for several minutes. If the battery weakens that quickly, you need a new battery or you need to have your charging system inspected.

The door sensor stays on when i open and close the side door on my 1998 ford windstar which causes the interior light to stay on.. what can i do to stop that from happening?


I had the same problem. Cheap way to fix is to remove fuse. Only problem with that is my power windows were on the same fuse so they wouldn't work without the fuse. Alternative was to remove the bulbs from interior lights and leave the fuse in. The door ajar light will remain on but at least your interior lights won't be on running down your battery.

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee power windows won't go up or down and my ac is not working. the interior lights stay on. i cannot find the fuses for the windows


usually the fuses are behind the plastic panel on either the left or right side of the car near the bottom of the dash, you may have to pull it down at the top to get it to unclip from the rear panel.
As for the interior light remaining on you may have the light switch in the wrong position as there usually is 3 positions, 1. lights come on when door is opened or light off when closed, 2. light remains off even when the door is opened. 3. light is on all the time in this position.
If you have checked those and they are ok you may have a faulty switch that is located at the inside rear of the door or maybe at the front, have a good look, it is there

Interior lights remain on after doors are closed causing battery to drain overnight. When fuse is removed lights go of and battery stays charged.


Check to be sure interior lights are turn off when you are in the vehical.If so check the interior light switches on the doors for proper opperation.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

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.
