With the door left open, open and close the door on the opposite side. If it works correctly, then you have a bad "door switch" (that little button mounted on either the front or rear jam pillar) on the "problem door" side.

SOURCE: door open light &dome light stay on

Hello, Friend

I had a friend that had the same issue. I had the same issue with my 99 Bonneville the outside door handle and the door latch itself where sticking because of dirt or some other substance. I kept my car very clean and I also cleaned the door jambs after every wash, but still there was a sticking in the latch and handle.

I could be driving down the road and the lights would be on. and I would open the window (with the doors locked and flick the outside handle and the interior lights would turn off. then I knew it was the outside handle that had a censor that was sticking. Why does the out side handle even have a censor? Good question. It seems the more sophisticated our cars become the more probability of issues from the littlest things.

Thank you

SOURCE: Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up

If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

Shut the hood, make sure the back hatch is shut tight. Lock all the doors. Walk around and make sure they locked. Open the drivers door with the key. This should clear the security. If not lock it again and try the passenger side door. Reach in and unlock the drivers door. If it cleared then. Replace the drivers door latch on the back side. Inside the door.

Radio does not go off when key is out of ignition and door is shut


You are on the right track...the problem appears to be on the driver side rear door actuator switch...locate this spring loaded sensor usually on the inside of the door by the hinges...spray it with PB Blastor, or WD 40...(Blastor works better) and move the switch back and forth...this should loosen up the sticking actuator and return your Buick to normalcy...Hope this helps

This sounds like a bad alarm module, the doors unlock but the alarm doesnt shut down, so it wont let you start it because its not shutting down, the light flash and door unlock put starter disable and horn stay active, most good alarms have liftime module warranties, if you take it back to who installed it and ask them or if it was already in the car when you bought it then you will need to disable or replace it. hope this helps, also to disable it just trun key on then open a open try key off and within 10 sec push the button under the dash its a small red button this will put it in vallet mode.

Keyless entry isn't working and alarm was tripped


Check your door latches. Since the light stays on, one of them isn't reading properly. Once you get that fixed, the remote should work. The light problem could be related. The computer thinks the door isn't shut so that part of the system thinks you aren't moving.
