Make sure that the thumb wheel switch is not turned all the way up. If this is ok then take some WD40 and spray a liberal amount into the door latches and open and close the doors firmly a few times to see if this unsticks the door ajar switches.

Passenager window wont go up, need schematics of the door panel to take it off to see what the problem might be. (1996 Ford thunderbird LX)

You need a flat head screwdriver to remove the light cover and the door lock and window switch. and a phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws, the one under the door/window switch could also be a small bolt. (When removing the door/window switch cover pull back on the door handle or you will scratch the cover when removing it). Then pull straight up on the hand bar and you can slip door/window switch cover through the hole.

1996 jeep grand cherokee no automatic interior lights


1. If you have the light switch in the wrong mode the lights will not operate when you open the door.

2. If the interior lights do not operate at all (ie you cannot switch them on and off manually)then you need to check the fuse for the interior lights.

3. When set to the correct mode, the interior lights will operate from a door operated switch so if the switch has failed the lights will either stay on or not operate at all when you open and close the door. Eventually these door switches fail with repeated use and need to be replaced. (Consider how many times the small door switch has been operated since 1996).

My interior lughts won't go out when the doors are closed after the van is shut off


Could be the front electronic module. The module has a timer that holds the lights on for about 60 seconds after you exit the van.

I lost my brake lights, turn signals, and hazard lights. The car will start but won't go into gear.


Sounds like a blown fuse...i would be checking the fuse panel inside the car, underneath the steering wheel area on the drivers side...this would be an interior fuse that would also control the brkae override switch.....

Interior light fuse blows


Have him or her check for a ground issue or a bad wire somewhere. You should not be having to do this. This is some sort of electrical issue in the wiring most likely a grounding problem

My car wont start , it will start sometimes , but i been having this problem on and off for a few monthes now , i have put new terminal on the negative side , my friend put a wire in between the post and...


its not the alternator, I have a 96 thunderbird and i had the same problem. its an open ground wire somewhere. Make sure your interior lights are turning off when you shut the car off. if the ground is touching metal they will stay on. If they dont then its probably just barely rubbing, I pulled all my floor lights out and havent had a problem since. you dont need to pull the accesory lights just the 4 floor lights ( 1 in each door and 2 under the panel)
