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.

In my GmC S-15 Jimmy the dome light and courtesy lights stay on when car is off and doors are shut help me fix this

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.

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.

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.

I have some problems with 2000 gmc jimmy not sure if me or truck

If it is a Canadain built vehicle the law required the head lights to stay on while the ignition is turned on. I have owned 9 Jimmy and Blazers including your year of Jimmy and none of them ever amde a noise in the dash when I put the vehicle into park. The shifter only has an electrical line runnig to the light control and a cable which runs under the carpet to the transmission.
