SOURCE: 1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off

Check the dash light dimmer switch. Perhaps it's set to have the interior lights on, when you turn the dash lights all the way bright, turning it a little more turns the interior lights on. Let us know how you make out.

SOURCE: 1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

How do I get my dome light to turn off if it stays on indefinitely after the doors are shut?


Hi, have you checked the switch at the dome light, the switch usually has 3 positions, 1 for off, 2 for on when a door is open and 3 for on all the time, just move the switch to the appropriate position.
Another thing to check is the door switches, located in the door frame where the door will close against them (usually covered by a rubber grommet in modern vehicles) open one door at a time and try pushing the switch making sure it moves freely in and out and check if the light goes out when pressed right in, if you find a faulty door switch it will need to be replaced.
Trust this helps

How to shut dome light off on 2002 mustang


First, try turning the switch on the dome light to a position until the dome light goes off when the door is closed. Beyond that, you've got an electrical problem. . .

Dome light comes on but doesn't turn off after closing doors


Could be a sticking door switch. Could try spraying door latches liberally with WD40 and open and shut each door one at a time several times to see if light goes out

My door ajar light keeps coming on along with my dome light but all doors are closed. If I open and shut the passanger door it goes off for awhule and then starts again.


Each door has a door ajar switch in the latch. You can either take some WD40 lube each latch opening and shutting each one 4 to 5 times after spraying, or you can replace the switch

2000 Dodge Neon/ 5spd/ 4 cyl/ when i am driving my dome light comes on and the door locks keep engaging. So a buddy told me that the door sensors were buggered up due to the fact that i had some frame work...


Lock the car and then pull each door to see which one is setting the alarm. Once you know which door it is, find the switch in the door jam that operates the dome light. If the switch is adjustable, adjust it out a bit until pulling on the door no longer lights the dome light or sets off the alarm. If it's not adjustable, perhaps you need more body work to fix it. Another option is to disable the switch by removing it, disconnecting the wire, taping the wire, and letting it go inside the body.

Please help dome lite will not go off battery goes dead!!! Anyone know how to fix this roblem


Check the plastic dome light switch which is located inside the driver door frame near the front of the vehicle. There should be a plastic buttom which gets depressed when the door goes shut, thus turning off the dome light. Sometimes, these buttons can get broken or damaged for numerous reasons and stick in, hence permanent dome light.

Dome light won't shut off after truck is off and doors are shut and door ajar light is on while driving but all three doors are shut.


sounds like one of the dome light switches is bad pop them out one by one and disconnect only one at a time until the light goes out or door ajar goes off, then a quick trip to the parts store and you are good to go! :) hope that helps
