    with one bulb in you can only get it to go off by putting the on/off switch half way in the off position. with two bulb on you can not get the lights to go off. door switch does not work at all.

The switch in your door that lets your truck know when the door is open is stuck. It is cheap to replace and it is not hard at all. 30 minutes maybe.

There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

The first thing is that this car has an auto shut down, if it sees any lights on it shuts them down after a while, this is why they are shutting off, i think you are correct with the door switch, the most common one is the driverdoor switch, its a small push type switch on the latch asm as you know, i would start with the driverside door, i would almost bet thats the bad one, as afr as the headlight switch try unplugging it and see if light goes out but some models operate throught the switch but most dont so if its the dimmer switch then the light should go out when disconnected. good day.

My dome lights stay on for about 15 to 20 minutes and my radio shuts off now when i turn the car off, it normally stays on when car is turned off until you open a door.


This is normal...........The dome light will give you time to collect your belongings and the radio or music of your choice will stay playing for about 15 min unless the door opens..............It is just the way cadi rolls........Hope this helps.

Whether I am driving or when I shut down my car and close the doors, the dome light stays on until the 20 minute shut off happens.


If you're HHR is a 2006 (maybe 2007), looking up at your dome lamp, there is a three position switch (OFF-ON-ON w/ DOORS), check that the position of this switch isn't ON. On later models, the dome lamp ON-OFF is controlled through the instrument panel dimmer on the center of the dash above the radio.

Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Then re-connect cable and start the car. Good luck.

Probably a bad door switch or a malfunctioning body control module. If it's an analog problem it could be the door switch (usually driver's side) or a broken wire in the harness going into the door as the constant movement of the harness when opening and closing the door eventually affects the wiring.
