Probably bad headlamp switch. You do know most have a position which turns the interior lights on even with the doors closed, don't you? If you have this turned off, but lights stay on, replace the switch.

Something killed my battery


It is possible that the positive terminal of the battery is badly sulphated ( hard black coating thet prevents good current bflow. POssible that the snow you went through up set the connection and when you clamped the battery charger on the connection was remade . Check and clean terminals with sand paper .

2002 s80 The interior lights on the doors will not go off killing the battery. Just bought car used. What should i do? Thx Elizabeth


For now you can remove the appropriate fuse for the lights. Or unhook the negative cable on battery at night zo it wont drain your battery. But there maybe a short in your wires somewhere that you'll need to have checked out.
