The door keeps saying it is open and i replaced the door sensers but its not that can you help


Hello melvin... When the light stays on it usually means a door is open or the switch on a door or liftgate/trunk is bad. If the door adjar button is seperate from the latch assembly I pull the switch from the body and jump it out. Go one by one and you will find the failed switch. If the switches check ok and the connector is jumped and the light is still on then there is an open in the wires for the door ajar switch
Here are more procedures for troubleshooting...

Possible causes are :
1. Door switches stuck in closed position. Remove the rubber cover and loosen the screw holding the door switch. Pull out switch and check if the light stays on....if light remains on, fault is not with switches.

2. Anti-theft system ECU shorted. One of the wire goes to the alarm control unit. Unplug the alarm unit, if equipped and test.

3. Shorted interior dome light. If dome light is not working in the door ajar mode, remove the dome light and unplug the connector. If indicator light does not go off, fault is not with dome light.

4. Shorted Red/White wire. This would be the most difficult to diagnose as the shorting can be anywhere between the door switches to the indicator light. If you had done any wiring repairs prior to this happening, backtrack to check if any part of the wire is exposed and grounding

Good luck...i hope this helps.

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 car alarm keeps going off, I made sure all the doors are shut properly and all the windows are closed. What else can I do to make it stop? '99 ford escort


Depends. If it is an aftermarket alarm that didn't come with the car those are easily removed by undoing the wiring for the alarm box usually underneath the steering column. If you're not comfortable with wiring issues, a local shop should be able to do it for around 70 dollars, one hour labor. Factory alarms are different. There are door switches that regularly go bad for your car that can usually be determined if when all your doors are closed the dome light stays on or comes on. There should also be an indicator on the instrument cluster. Usually it's the driver's door(most used) that goes bad. If this malfunctions while the vehicle alarm has been set the antitheft system will think someone opened the door without unlocking it. Replacing these switches usually require removal of the door latch on the inside of the door panel. Sometimes spraying lubricant through the keyhole will help these switches work... for a while. And if all else fails, you can always unplug the horn... Good luck!

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.

My dome lights on my 2008 Buick Enclave do not go on anymore when the car door opens. I tried to push the dome light override button in and out and it doesn't make any difference. They still don't go on....


make sure the dome override switch is depressed. The switch is located just above the rotating knob which dims the interior ligthts. The dome overide switch is located just to left of the steering column.

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?
