Door latch has a sensor in it. possible one of the sensors is bad. door panel must be removed for inspection. disconnect each sensor until you find which one is causeing your problem.

SOURCE: door open indicator light stays on , automatic door locks go on & off while driving and dome light and outside mirror lights wont go off after the car is turned off

i would hazard a guess and say that wires in the rubber boot from the door pilar to the door are damaged or the connection block in the door pillar in this the terminals are corroded or something similar

SOURCE: 97 mercury grand marquis dome light turns on and off as u open and close rf door..any ideas???

Sounds like there is a loose ground wire inside the door panel, but the doorjam switch should be what determines the off and on. It is located in the doorjam.

Sometimes the wiring that goes through the doorjam can hide a broken wire inside. There are more connections in the drivers door because it is the Master location for all the other locks and windows.

Go to Autozone.com for wiring diagrams for free. Just register your car and you can get chassis diagrams to show where the wires are for that circuit.

If you are going to fool around with the wiring, disconect the battery first. The only big thing is the controls for the outside mirror can make the removal of the door a little more difficult.

How to replace interior dome light bulb?


1) Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.

2) Make sure the dome light switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.

3) Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.

4) Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel (oil from your skin will shorten its life). Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.

5) Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

If the bulb doesn't work, you've got a bad switch somewhere, probably on the drivers door.

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves


My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

1998 Taurus SE warning chime beeps as you get in the driver door


Hi John,

Had a similar problem with my Saturn. Door chime going all the time, the seat belts going up - down - up for no apparent reason.

Turned out to be the switch in the door jamb had become unseated. As it randomly made and broke contact, the cars computer thought the doors were opening and closing, then acted accordingly.

I remounted it with the help of a hot glue gun (plastic mount).

Hope this info helps with your problem.

Best regards
Mike
