There are switches around the door frame or near the latching mechanism that engage when the door is shut, shorting the circuit in turn cutting the electricity to the lights. look around your doors and find the one that is broken or worn. also check your trunk.

The door alarm keeps going off until you reach 25 km and keeps going back on everytime you drop below 25km. then when you turn the key off the interrior lights come on and wont turn off.


The mechanism in the door also contains the electrical sensor which activates the interior light and the door bell when a door is open.

Chances are good that you will have to replace the door locking mechanism, BUT, sometimes the electrical switch in the mechanism gets dirty and sticks.

This can often be corrected by performing the following:
1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:

  • Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc

  • Air, canned or even better, from a compressor

  • Spray lubricant - Dry lube
2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism
This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical & plunger mechanism inside the door switch.
If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.

If this doesn't work, the switch may have to come out for repair or replacement.

Cadillac Deville Electrical problem


You could try checking the fuses to see if any are blown, if the fuses are all good then it's possible the door switch is bad or not making a connection from dirt or debris, the door switch is generally located insdie the door at the hinge or its a push button switch, when the door closes it pushes the switch in, the switch may also be jammed in keeping your lights from turning on.
