Door switch or door alignment off. If the end of the switch plunger is broke off, tape a penny or similar to the spot on the door that contacts the switch.

Remote keyless entry module

First off we need to know if it is a factory or aftermarket alarm. Plus, whether you have a fob or not won't make the alarm malfunction. If I were to venture a guess you have an aftermarket alarm that has gone around the bend. But if it is a factory unit then defective door switches (the ones that turn off the dome lights when the door is closed) could be the problem. Also there could be a problem with the power door locks themselves but not real likely. The body module could have issues in the security section, again not real likely. Usually problems like this are found in bad grounds, switches, intermittent power feeds, or something similar. Even if one of the door jamb switches is just loose and able to shift around could cause weird things to happen. And don't forget the switches under the hood and trunk lid. You can try each door switch by just pushing it in and out and wiggling it around with your finger to see if it has a short or bad ground. If it does the dome light will go on and off as you wiggle the plunger and that may be your problem. Good luck. Intermittent electrical problems are the hardest ones to find.

My dome light doesn't shut off, neither does the trunk cruiser 2005

I would guess its the timer that supposed to hold the lights on a minute or two after the door is closed.

The dome light in my 2007 PT Cruiser will not go off. There are no switches on the dome light itself and I can't get the lens off to take the bulb out??? HELP!

first check to make sure your dimmer swtch is not turned up all the way this is the small wheel that turns the dash lights brighter. if this is not the problem then you have a bad switch at one of the doors. unplug the the door switch at each door till the light goes out this is the one that is bad

Door light and Interior light comes on-01 PT Cruiser

Hey there, I'm the guy with the same type problem that posted above you. You can turn off the dome light by the switch on the turn signal stalk (lever). Just rotate it to the "off" position. The interior lights on the dash and console will be dim, but you will barely be able to see the speed etc. Thats what I do.
As for the dome light staying on. Sounds like your problem is in the switch itself. I would start at the one that was just adjusted. with the door open you can flip the ting switch (the latch that closes the door) with a screwdriver and it will simulate the door being closed so you can fool with it while open.
Sounds like it could use some adjustment as it's not closing completely. It's 3 torx screws. loosen them and move the switch around a bit (you can get a little play) as the front door switch is in the latch itself. Hope this helps! and of course, if somone else has ideas please feel free to send to me, as I can't find where my switch is grounding. I'm guessing the BCM but can't find where. It's sad too, because I'm starting to really hate this car. Overheating, transmission leaks, now this...

I have a 2002 and one day had no headlight or dash lights. The tail lights, blinkers and hazards work just fine as do the radio of dome lights. Changed the multi-function and checked all fuses, but no help. I am interested in the solutions as well.

2004 PT Cruiser dome light doesn't work

If there is a switch on the dome light, that may be your problem. You would need to remove the assembly and check for voltage coming into the switch using a voltmeter with the door open.
