SOURCE: Door Ajar Warning Light Stays On

Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.

SOURCE: Interior lights won't turn on when door opens

Do you have electric locks in the vehicle? One test to do is turn on the car's headlights and open the door. You should hear a chime when you open the driver door. One other thing is to unlock the doors with the remote if you have a remote open the driver door, get in the car but don't put the key in the ignition. The doors might relock after 15-20 seconds. This proves that the door signal open is not being processed. Just tell me what model VW and what year and if you have electric locks and I'll help you.

SOURCE: dome light wont turn off

some times the door switch can be faulty. and it may be coincidence that the interior switch is faulty too. i have owned alot of S- series trucks and a few of them have done this to me. you need to individually check each door for switch contact

a door ajar switch is the problem. It's not hard to fix just a little tricky. you can do either do 2 things get it scanned and it shoule tell you what door switch is giving the problem. or save some money and one by on unplug the switches and jump the switch until the light goes out....and then changes that switch

I have a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Z-71 - the interior dome light works with the dash switches, but won't work when the door opens. Why?


Is there a button by the headlight control switch? I recently found out that the dome light only comes on while the doors are open when this button is engaged

Interior lights wont go out


Check for a faulty switch inside the door jam. If the switch is broken or pushed into the holder, it will not open the circuit thus the light will stay on. You may have to remove the bulb until you have time to replce the switch. Good luck

How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open


Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

Interior lights do not come on when door is opened 2008 pont g6 gt


1. Check to ensure the interior light manual switch is not set in the fully off position. If it is, the interior lights won't come on when opening the doors.

2. I assume you can switch on the interior lights manually at all times.

3. If everything checks out and there is no obvious cause then the door activated switches are no doubt faulty or the wiring to the door switches is faulty.

The car is a 2008 build and should still be covered by the manufacturer's new car warranty unless the maximum warranty miles have been exceeded.

Interior lights won't come on when the doors are open.


there is a timer on the interior lights to turn off after 20 minutes.
one of your door switches are bad,and it tells the computer that a door is open and the lights are turned off,that makes sense.
a way to test this is to undo the battery for a minute. then see if the interior lights come on. one of the door switches is bad
