Question about Cars & Trucks
The switch that turns on the dome light is not tight, turns all around. the battery drains out completely, I can not get to the wiring at this time. I have checked all the fuse's in side and under the hood they are all good. I have try to look up how to videos from u tube, but there is nothing that gets me to where I need to go. Even trying to remove the glove box, There is no video on this, unless you have any other truck or car.
The interior lights and dome light are all operated by connecting the white/ground wire to the frame or body of the vehicle. There's always power to the lights but connecting the ground makes the circuit, complete and lights on. Until you can get a chance to repair the switch, just take all the interior light bulbs out so they won't drain your battery. That's not a repair tho, it's only temporary.

There could be a fusible link under the hood off the starter relay that is burnt out.

I think I have found the problem. When I wiggle the ignition switch the turn signals and radio go on and off so I feel the issue is in the ignition switch. From what I understand the actual electronics for the switch are at the base of the sterring column behind the lower dash panel and is connected by a rod that may need adjusting.

try starting your car and letting it run for a min disconnect the bat and if it dies then you need to find a bad wire or a bad ground to the alternator. something might not be telling it to put out any power to re-charge your batt

SOURCE: dome lights won't turn off
Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?
