I have a 2001 ford mustang v-6 that the dome light will not go out when the doors are closed and the key is out ?


My 02 Mustang's light was still on because of the door ajar button. Open the door look at the latch. The latch that goes up and down has a door ajar button hiding near this. It can be hidden by a rubber covering on the side of it. Or you can take the door inner door cover off and try to squirt some oil into the door ajar. You can try oiling it and work it back and forth. Also on the the latches sometimes they dip them in plastic. Mine was loose and would not let the door shut properly. So that was another problem with the light being on. I cut off the pieces that were jamming the latch up.

The interior lights in my 2004 VW jetta do not turn on when the driver door is opened.


If I am remembering correctly, the switch is part of the latch. Each door has its own switch to turn on the interior light, and it sounds like the switch in the driver's door latch is either stuck or junk. If it has to be replaced it is very simple to remove for those that know how, but a nightmare for those that don't. The exterior handle has to be removed to release the pull-cord to the latch, interior trim panel and vapor barrier has to come off. Electrical harness, lock rod, interior handle rod, all have to be removed. Now the latch. Then it all has to go back together, and most importantly, it all has to work. I'm not saying it's not possible. I'm saying that it can ruin your day and your wallet if something goes wrong.

F 150 DOOR AJAR WILL NOT GO OFF AND INTERIOR LIGHT STAYS ON! HOW DO I FIX IT


If only the door ajar light and interior light is not working it is probably the door ajar switch located on the door latch inside the door. sometimes a little WD40 sprayed towards lower side of the latch will work, frees the piston in the switch. if not the switch must be replaced. If also the outside mirror control does not work, the door lock switch also does not work, it is a bad ground to those three systems, the Electric windows have a separate ground wire and still work. You must feed a new black wire from a good ground on the body thru the door accordion tube and connect it to the larger black wire on the plug that goes to the door lock switch. The door lock, the mirror control, the door ajar light, and the interior light problem will be gone.

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.

2002 Olds Aurora.All interior lights are out. Found blown fuse.


Your Interior lights share a fuse with alot of other circuits and if I remember correctly the switches are built into the door latches.On some of the models the cigerette lighter is on the same circuit and if your element is bad it can short out,also you could check wiring between doors and body to see if any rubbed thru.

My interior lights will not turn off the dome light and rear bay light


check your door jamb switches to make sure they are shutting off the interior lights. They are part of the door latch.

All models have a lamp switch (13713) located in the driver's door latch that activates the interior lamp when the front door (20124) is opened.
I believe right door has one too, and maybe the hatch latch too

I have a 1994 Buick Regal and both of my door handles are broken, How do I get into my car


You don't have to break the windows--you just need 45 minutes, a lot of patience, and a lot of wires, long flat objects (like yardsticks), shims, crowbars, and 2 people.

Same thing happened on my 88 Regal. We levered open the top of the doors on both sides, used shims to keep the micro-space open, and managed to "hook" the interior door handle of one door from the other side of the car using the wires. The flat long objects are necessary on the interior door handle side to help manuver the hook into place on the latch. Then, with one person pulling the wire to actuate the interior latch, the other person had to be on that side to pull open the door.

This is the SECOND time in two years I've had to replace BOTH of the interior mechanisms for the outer door handles. Is this normal, or did Buick screw up with this part?
