Your door switch is made into the door latch, you might try spraying WD-40 into the drivers door latch and work the latch open and closed. You will probably end up having a new latch installed though.

Courtesy and dome lights won't shut off. Could the courtesy light relay be the problem and where is it located? I already replaced the control timer module which didn't help.


the courtesy and dome lights are operated by switches in the door frame look around the opening and look for a small black button
that button presses back in and breaks the circuit thereby putting out the light
if it is earthed ( grounded) at the back then the lights will stay on
there is one for each door and any one will keep the lights on

2001 gmc jimmy clock stays on after door is opened and dies out battery, what could be wrong?


No other lights on ,dome, courtesy etc...
Battery Rundown Protection/Inadvertent Power
In the event that any of the interior lamps supplied voltage by the inadvertent power relay and ground from the courtesy lamp relay were to remain on when the ignition is OFF after a period of 20 minutes, the BCM will deactivate the inadvertent power relay turning OFF all of the lamps on that circuit to prevent total battery discharge. Only when the ignition switch is cycled back to the RUN position will the BCM reset the internal timer and reactivate the inadvertent power relay. When the inadvertent power relay is not energized, the BCM utilizes the inadvertent power courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit to monitor for a courtesy lamp switch request signal. If a courtesy lamp switch is activated, the BCM will receive the signal to energize the inadvertent power relay by grounding the control circuit.

Dome light and courtesy light stays on in my 1987 S-15 GMC Jimmy even when car is off and doors are closed


courtesy lights have a 3 position switch 1 is for doors open --on /off 2 is for light off permanent and 3 is for light on in car permanent for reading etc. Other than that check the door switches for a permanent earth fault.

Dome light and key in ignition tone won't quit.


Yes, I would lean toward a stuck drivers door latch. Your door open switch is located in the latch itself and the ding is a reminder your key is in the ignition so you don't lock them in the vehicle when you lock the door. even though your door is shut, the truck still thinks it is open. sometimes spraying the latch with some WD-40 will get it freed up and working again, but a new latch might be in your future.

1996 GMC Suburban...Courtesy lights stay on and will not go off. Tried button- off-- tried interior lights up and down....Button to turn off dome lights does nothing and will not stay punched in


96 Jimmy Check the SMT surface mount technology, referring to circuit boards.
WOW, listen under the steer wheel is a panel
drop it down on the panels left side as it comes down is a small black plastic box left of the diagnosis jack with I don't know 5 or 6 wires going to it, wires come from the left hand corner above the emer brake pedal. Plugged in lights on ,,out lights off. Then have the unit tested. or replace. If there was ever a power surge the caps could have blown.

One of your door sensors (or trunk sensor) is signaling that it is open or the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, which turns on the dome and foot lamps. Try turning the dimmer switch all the way down. If this does not fix the problem you will have to get all the door sensors (and trunk sensor) tested to determine which one needs to be replaced.

Courtesy lights (ceiling and door panel lights) will shut off if ignition is started but after shut off and I open and close either door the interior lights stay on long after the 20 second timer is...


Some lights do that on my chrysler they'll stay on for up to a minute that shouldn't kill your battery. As long as they go off you should be ok
