The lights are programmed to shut off when you shift to drive or reverse. The other problem may be a defective door latch mounted door ajar/courtesy light switch. Each door has one and the dealer can read them with a special scanner called an NGS

SOURCE: door ajar and interior lights dont go on when door is open

THE SWITCH MIGHT BE STUCK! OPEN YOUR DOOR, LOOK FOR A BLACK ROUND SHAPE BUTTON AND GRASP THE ROUND EDGES WITH YOUR FINGER AND PULL OUT AND SEE IF YOUR DOOR AJAR LIGHT COMES ON, ALSO CHECK THE FUSES AND LAST CHECK YOUR INTERIOR LIGHT BULB. GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: the interior lights stay on and the door ajar

Find the lamp push button on each door.
Open one door, and only one door (or tailgate).
Push the lamp button IN at that door. If light goes out, then that particular push switch needs adjustment or replacement.
Cl;ose door and open another door. Push button IN.
Keep doing this until you find faulty door push button.

Which door was it?

The back seat interior overhead lights of my 2006 Buick Lucerne have begun to stay lit when I'm driving. Pushing on light does not turn it off. How to turn them off manually?


If the rear light on the other side goes on and off by pushing on the light then i would say the switch in the one that stays lit it either stuck or broken and may need to be replaced. i think you could stop by a body shop and they would be able to do it for less money that a Buick dealer would.

2002 ford expedition interior lights are not on what fuse is it?


Courtesy Lamps - central junction box. fuse # F1.21 that goes to interior lamp relay in the instrument cluster and F.24 this fuse powers battery saver relay .
Interior Lighting The interior light system consists of the following:
  • front map lamp assembly
  • front door courtesy lamp
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • glove box lamp assembly
  • central security module
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior lamp relay
  • illuminated vanity mirrors (Navigator only)
  • reading lamp assembly
  • rear courtesy lamp
  • running board lamp
  • underhood lamp assembly
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) illuminates the interior lamps when an unlock signal is received from the remote anti-theft personality central security module. The illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
    • 25 seconds have elapsed since the illuminated entry feature was activated and the interior lamp control is not activated (door ajar or courtesy lamp switch on).
    • The GEM receives a request from the central security module (remote transmitter lock button pressed) and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    • The ignition is in the RUN or START position and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
    The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
  • You have an electronic control module and relays involved in the operation of these lights also !

    Interior lighting stays on


    This is normal for the shift indicator lift to stay on while the car is being exited. If you come back later, peek inside without opening the door and see if it is still glowing.

    The battery died and now my interior light won't come on when I open the door. It comes on when I unlock the car with the remote. Also, before I could drive with my lights on and when I turned the car off...


    It sounds as if the pin on the lower back corner of the door opening is stuck in the closed position. It is surrounded by a little black rubber boot. If it does not freely push in with your finger and pop back out, the interior light won't operate when the door is open. This same switch also operates to cancel the parking lights when you leave the headlamp switch in the on position.

    You may need to remove the door pin and lubricate it. Sometimes the plastic gets dirty and doesn't slide in and out freely.
