Question about 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
I am also having trouble with my door light coming on (along with the ding). It started out whenever I made a left hand turn. (Good thing I do not drive NASCAR) now it comes on anytime I hit the slightest bump,pothole in the road and instead of going off after a delay, it will stay on. Therefore I cannot drive it at night as the dome light will stay on the whole ride. Where is the fuse to correct this. We had the driver's side door fixed as the latch was loose. But this is very annoying. Someone on a troubleshoot site said it was under the hood, but darn if I can find it. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
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...

My interior lights stay on for about an hour after I have locked my doors. They stay on all the time while I am driving the car
