1984 corvette domelight coming on at anytime
Your problem is most likely a defective courtesy light delay timer module. The design is so poor that they are guaranteed to eventually fail.
The module is accessed by removing the lower instrument panel on the passenger side. That's the panel on the passenger side that has the light mounted on it. Then you have to reach up and find the main wiring harness. The module is taped to the harness with masking tape. Break the tape and the module can be lowered down just far enough to unplug it. It's black and will have 3 white wires, a black, a pink/white and a pink/black wire on a 5-pin connector.
The timer was discontinued long ago by GM and reproductions are hard to find. However, the timer function can be easily bypassed at the connector. Remove the timer module from the mating connector and place a jumper wire in the connector at the outermost pin (WHITE wire) and the second pin from the other end (also WHITE wire). The interior lights will now shut off immediately when the doors are closed.
