2000 chevy 2500 (new style) parking lights wont shut off


The parking lights staying on and the left turn signal not working may not be related, the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb, turn on the left signal and see if all the bulbs light up if not replace the burnt one, if they all light, the turn signal flasher may be at fault ( it can work with one side and not the other), as far as the parking lights staying on, check the door "pin" switch that controls the interior lights (are the interior lights staying on too?), since the chimes are staying on even with the keys on , I would suspect the door pin switch, probably the drivers side. I believe there may be a timer on the parking lights that turn them off after several seconds after the door is closed, this may be at fault if not the pin switch. newer cars and trucks also leave the reverse lights on for a while after the door is closed.

Interior lights run battery down when car is turned off.


Are you saying the interior lights don't shut off after the door is closed, or that the interior lights, when they're on for a short time, run the battery down?
If the lights stay on when they should shut off, there could be a bad door switch that's not registering that the door is closed.
If the lights being on for a short time when the car isn't running is running the battery down, your battery may be getting close to the end of it's lifespan & need changed.

Interior lights stay on in '98 windstar.why?


You should have a switch that controls your dash lights so you can make the lights brighter at night. See if that switch is tuened all the way up. Turn it the opposite direction and see if your lights go out. Hope this helps Leave comment.

The interior lights in my 2000 Ford F250 will not turn off. How can I get the lights to turn off?


Just to get the interior lights off to save your battery, you could pull the fuse. Refer to the service manual to determine the proper fuse.

To fix the problem, i would suspect one of the door switches is faulty.

Came home tonight, interior lights on 92 Ford Explorer. All doors shut, light switch in off mode. Any suggestions to get them off.


Likely, the plunger style switches that are in the door jam near the door hinge has lost it's lock nut and fallen into the body of the truck. The plunger would then be allow to stay extended allowing the interior to stay on.

Check for the plungers inside the door jam of all the doors, as well as the rear hatch.

My interior lights do not come on when I open front doors. Open back door, driver side and they come on and stay on. Had to shut off dash ligts to shut off. Just bought vehicle used.


There's a little switch that the door pushes in.This switch is visible and accessible. If it has a nut on it, or if it looks like it can be pulled out, then take it out, and cut one or both of the wires. Cap them to prevent them from touching. This will permanently disable the switch.
Else you can replace the switch.
This solution is not good if you are facing the same problem with all the door.
Thanks

1991 Dodge Dynasty interior dome lights won't shut off


First, check the dimmer switch (should be the same as the headlight switch) and make sure it is not turned all the way to the right as that will turn on the overhead light.
If you are sure the door switch is fine, then I would replace the dimmer switch.

Interior lights wont turn off


Double check your dashboard "dimmer" switch, most vehicles allow for adjustment of dash light. Once the max intensity is reached there should be an additional "click" which will cause the interior lights to come on and stay on. This is the first thing to check. Many newer vehicles also have a timer switch you should check which turns off the lights a minute or two after shutting the doors. It this is set to the max position it over rides the shut off.

If this is not the cause, you either have an additional fuse for the reading lights (most likely labeled something like "courtesy"). If you did pull the correct fuse and still have power to the lamps you may have a short in the wiring or faulty light switch, dimmer switch or one or more of the door switches which control the lighting. As you can see, it is a more complex system than most people assume. Please take the issue seriously (it is more than an annoyance) as it can melt your lighting fixtures, cause additional electrical system damage or even potentially cause a fire.

One other thing you may wish to check for is an additional switch on the rear hatch. My Kia Sedona has one I accidentally knocked into the on position which caused similar symptoms. The Sedona also had issues which a "Master Switch" located under the dash which controlled the lighting and it's timer which turns off the lights after a short interval.
