Most likely it needs a new door switch. Until then, remove the bulb.

I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.

First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.

SOURCE: 2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

Yes the lights should turn off automatically when you close the door IF you don't have the light switch on inside the car.

If the light switch is on the lights will stay on. Tell grampa the internet said hi.

Our '93 was doing that and in this case it was that the door latch was out of adjustment and not closing the switch properly

Everytime i lock my van the locks keep unlocking themselves


My Honda did this when the driver's door wasn't fully closed.
Does the inside light (dome light) turn on and off correctly when you open and close the driver's door?

If not, then the door latch might be loose or the door sensor switch might have failed (so it thinks the door is open even when it's closed securely)

Look for contacts at door jamb & door, that mate when closed.( usually round metal piece) Take a piece of fine steel wool & scrub them and see if that cures it.

The door light switch does not work on my 2000 Dodge Grand carava


There sould be a small door switch on the b-pillar of your van. It is held on by a phyllips screw. Purchase a switch and replace it. This is a very simple one screw and one wire repair.Let me know if you need more info.
