No there is not, the interior lights swithes (one for each door) are inside the door on the door latch.

Interior light delay


Same for both doors? If not, I'd check the switch(s) on the drivers door (may be more than one), or may be just one that has multiple contacts and the ones for the lights may be faulty.

My interior lights have been coming on by there self at times. It is draining my battery


Sometimes the sensor on the door gets loose and thinks the door is open. When the car hits a bump the interior lights will come on. You can either use the dimmer dial or turn off the interior lights to make them not turn off when the door opens.

So now i'm adding to my problem. First the panel read passenger door open and the interior lights stayed on while driving. My husband hasn't had time to fix, so I had to drive it anyway. No


Fuel gauge issue : this could be the fuel level sensor on the tank. its only a minor thing. with in regards to the lights it sounds like there is a wire that is shorting out causing it to stay on but take it an electrician and they should be able to test for this, and also the light switch could be faulty aswell and wont let the light turn off

Interior lights stay on


either the lights are turned on manually from the headlight/interior light switch, or you have a defective door switch that is telling the module that a door is open, or you have a door that is open, or your module that controls the interior lights is defective. I would start with the simple things, I would make sure all doors are closed. If they are, then check the headlight/interior switch to make sure the interior lights are in the off position, then check all of the door switches. They are simple normally closed push button switches that should be mounted on the car frame near the door hinges.

Interior lights won't come on when the doors are open.


there is a timer on the interior lights to turn off after 20 minutes.
one of your door switches are bad,and it tells the computer that a door is open and the lights are turned off,that makes sense.
a way to test this is to undo the battery for a minute. then see if the interior lights come on. one of the door switches is bad

Interior lights won't turn on when door opens


you have a bad drivers door latch, the micro switch inside is not telling the computer that the latch has been opened which would normally mean the door is open.
