2001 GMC Jimmy-DRL do not work, headlights work when manually turned on. Tried owners manuel suggestions (press dome overide button three times in 6 seconds) did not help.

This may be oversimplified, many times both of the DRL lamps are burnt out. Many people don't notice till the second bulb fails. Pull out one of the headlamps and verify condition of bulb.

When I am driving my door ajar light on the dash cycles on and off and my dome light stays on. Also when my car is parked and my doors are locked the alarm and lights cycle on and off on there own. I am...

Ford uses a tiny micro switch that is mounted on the door latch inside the door to turn on the dome light and provide door ajar sensing, the switches get water in them and this causes them to not make a good connection, it is a very common problem, i have replaced dozens of them at my dealer. Have the switches tested by the dealer, they do it with a electronic system scanner that can ID which of the 4 door switches is acting up.

2000 Dodge Neon/ 5spd/ 4 cyl/ when i am driving my dome light comes on and the door locks keep engaging. So a buddy told me that the door sensors were buggered up due to the fact that i had some frame work...

Lock the car and then pull each door to see which one is setting the alarm. Once you know which door it is, find the switch in the door jam that operates the dome light. If the switch is adjustable, adjust it out a bit until pulling on the door no longer lights the dome light or sets off the alarm. If it's not adjustable, perhaps you need more body work to fix it. Another option is to disable the switch by removing it, disconnecting the wire, taping the wire, and letting it go inside the body.

My inside cabin dome lights stay on. can not get them to shut off except pulling the fuse. 2002 Buick Century

i hope you do not have the dimmer switch turned all the way up. If you don't it could be the interior light pin switch. It's mounted either at the door jam area or inside the door on the door latch assembly. GM techs could use a TECH2 to check body control module functions and perform overide to confirm this.

2006 saturn ion dome light goes on by itself and

When this happened to mine it ended up being a bad door switch. The alarm, dome/map lights and electric door locks are all connected to the door switches. It cost $65 for diagnosis, parts and labor at Saturn of South Burlington VT

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?

My security alarm goes off intermittingly without any apparent cause, usually 4-5 hours after I have parked it (and locked it up) for the evening. I end up having to open a door to stop the alarm and then...

When I bought my 2001 Jimmy, it did the same thing. Searched the "net" and found the solution. Open all the doors and clean the light switch buttons. Sometimes they get dirt in them. This worked for me. I've never had this problem again.

Dome and inside lightsdon't turn off and run down battery we have checked alll pins

Your interior light switch (adjusts the brightness of the dash lights) is probably all the way "on". I have done this a few times by accident.
