Dome light won't turn off

Repaired the drivers side view mirror, now the dome light won't go off. I obviously messed up the sensor but don't have a clue how to proceed.

    I checked the headlight switch ( I was hoping). I'm pretty sure it is the door switch. I just don't know how to find it.

Check to make sure headlight switch is not turned to keep dome light on. If not depending on what you did to repair mirror the switch in the drivers door may be the culprit.

    Look in your door jams the sensor is really nothing more than a switch. It may have a rubber boot on it the switch is like a push button. The button is out when door is open and when the door is closed it goes in and turns light off,

2004 chevy impala review mirror lights won't go off


Those should be map lights and there should be a switch for them.
On some cars you can program the interior light control to turn them on with the dome light.
Check your owners manual.

How do turn on the light inside the sunfire aside from those reading lights on the rear view mirror?


  • There is a dome light switch on the dash. Turn it all the way to the right and it will click. Torn it to the left to turn the dome light off.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am and the interior stay on


Interior Lights Circuit Description
By using a feature called inadvertent power control, the body control module (BCM) supplies power to all of the following components:
• The courtesy lamps
• The dome lamps
• The rear view mirror reading lamps
• The instrument panel compartment lamp
• The rear compartment lamp
The left front door ajar switch turns the interior lamps on through the BCM by grounding CKT 394. When the left front door is open, the switch is closed. This condition provides a ground and a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then grounds the following lamps through CKT 156 in order to turn the lamps on:
• The courtesy lamps
• The dome lamp
• The rearview mirror lamps
The right front door ajar switch and the rear door ajar switches turn the interior lamps on by grounding CKT 395 from the BCM.
When the ignition key is removed from the lock cylinder, the interior lamps remain on for approximately 40 seconds.
The BCM provides an interior lamps-on delay after a door is opened. The lamps remain on for approximately 40 seconds or until the ignition switch is turned to the ON position. The 40 second lamps-on delay reduces to 4 seconds if a door is opened within 2 minutes of the ignition switch being moved from the ON position. The interior lamps immediately turn off when the vehicle begins to move.
The dome lamp OFF-DOOR-ON switch controls the dome lamp. When the switch is in the OFF position, the dome lamp remains off. When the switch is in the DOOR position, the dome lamp lights when a door is opened by the BCM grounding CKT 156. When the switch is in the ON position, ground is supplied through CKT 750. The rear view mirror reading lamps are controlled by the rear view mirror reading lamps switch or through CKT 156 from the BCM.
Voltage is supplied at all times to the BCM through the INT LPS fuse. The BCM supplies voltage to the interior lamps through CKT 1732.

Battery Run Down Protection
When the ignition switch is in the OFF position, the BCM turns off the power to all of the interior lamps after 18-22 minutes.
The BCM will reset the inadvertent power control relay output when one of the following actions is performed:
• Open or close a door.
• Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
• Turn off any interior lamps that may be on.
• Press the power door lock switch/keyfob button.
• Press the decklid release keyfob button.
