There are several things that can cause this, but the most common is a broken door switch that keeps the circuit energized.
Second most common is a broken interior light fixture.
Both of these item as are cheap plastic, and both break and melt easily.
The door switches are not often easy to change, as they are hidden behind trim parts.
You may choose to pull the fuse for the dome lights whilst you decide to fix the problem, lest the battery die, or the dome light melts.
. God bless your efforts.
sorry i have to say this, but have you checked the bulb? the cover pulls off pretty easily.next, check the fuse. the dome light fuse will run with another electrical component. be sure to check them all!and if you can manually turn on the light. check the door switch located in the door jamb close to the latch.
pretty easy to diagnose: power goes into the fuse for that circuit, from fuse to the dome light, and the door switches are wired in as an on-off switch. So, check your fuse, check your bulb, and if they are both good, then either your door switches are inoperative (may need cleaning, pull them out and check for operation. See if one of the wires is hot) OR, you have a short, a broken wire somewhere (least likely scenario). I hope you find the problem.
the fuse for that controls all your interior lights first check your door jam pin switches the check the dome light switch before pulling the fuse and it would work out better for you if you just take the bulb out instead of pulling the fuse
First, check all of the door switches to make sure they are working properly in the door closed position. A broken switch actuator will cause this problem. If that doesn't work or you don't have the resources to fix the problem right away, check your owner's manual for the location of the dome light fuse. Pull this fuse and save it until you can finish the repair.
Sounds like the dome light has been turned on using the switch on the dash. Most of the time the dash dimmer switch is set up so that if the dimmer is in the maximum position, the dome light can be turned on. If the dome light has been turned on like this, it still will turn off after some time to save your battery. Then when you unlock the door with the remote, it goes back to the same state it was when it was left in - "ON". Check for this switch on the dash, and roll it to get it off of the "ON" position.
Sometimes the dome lite is turned on manually by rotating the headlamp switch knob, try turning it off with the knob. Best time to check for light left on, is in the dark.
Hopefully pulling the dome lite fuse will stop the battery drain.
