SOURCE: 2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome

To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You usually hear clicking when the battery or connection is bad. Since you hear nothing and you have interior power, it is not the battery, alternator, or connection. It appears to be a bad starter, starter solenoid, ignition module, or lock cylinder. Has you key been getting stuck recently? Ever? I would suggest finding your starter and hitting it. When you mess with the panic button, vibrations can trigger the starter, therfore starting the vehicle as you have said. Also, the security/alarm can cause a vehicle to not start also. But first, try hitting the starter. Do you have an alarm light on? Have you tried entering your security code? Let me know please and thanks.

How do I replace dome light on Matrix 2009


Remove the key from the ignition. Make sure the doors are closed, so the new bulb does not illuminate when you are installing it.
Make sure the dome lighting switch is turned to the "Off" position. Pry the plastic lens away from the dome light. Use a small, flat-head screwdriver.
Push back the side bulb clamp. Pull out the old dome lightbulb. Wipe the area with a paper towel if it is dirty.
Wrap the new bulb in a paper towel. Insert it into the dome lightbulb holder. Push it up gently to secure it.
Turn the switch to "On" to test the bulb. Reposition the cover and push up to lock the clips into place.

96ChryslerCirrus: 'door' warning vs odometer miles, Dome light stays on.


In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2002 gmc sierra 1500 and I can't find the button that turns off the dome light when you close the door.


The button is part of the latch that holds the door shut. If you have that many issues I wonder if the wiring harness in between the door is bad?

My interior lights stay on even with the doors closed and the dome override button won't turn them off either


This is a short on the dome lamp assembly. It is possible that the ground wire from the dome to switches is short.
remove assembly and check.

2003 Ford Explorer.....door adjar light won't go off, dome lights stays on unless manually turned off, key in ignation creates a dinging noise.


try spraying the latch mechanism with a spray lubricant and open/close the door many times-the sensor is on the door latch (not the 'button") and it is a common problem on fords as the get older. do both doors, spray heavily, and open/close at least a dozen times or more.

The open door light on the dashboard won't go off and the dome light stays on 2001 Sub For. All doors are in fact closed.


Posibly a short in the wiring from a door switch. Try each one with the rest of the doors closed until you find it. You should be able to remove the switches from the door pillars.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.
