It most likely has a short circuit to ground after the light itself.

Interior lights tipically ALWAYS have power to them, and the various switches give them ground to make them Illuminate.

The illumination switch won't shut off


First check the dimmer switch and make sure it is not turned all to way to the right or left ? The dimmer switch controls how bright your meter lights are, but if you turn it to the far left or right it will activate the interior lights and will stay on regardless. Other than that it could be a bad door switch, some back lights also have a 3 way switch, one way makes the light stay on all the time, the other position has the lights off no matter if the door or dimmer switch is on. The middle position work only when a door or back latch is open, then goes off when closed, hope this helps ?

When the side door and passenger door are closed the small light inside comes on


Most cars have an interior light switch that works in conjunction with the dash panel light dimmer. When in it's extreme position, it turns on the interior light. Another possibility is a faulty door switch. I hope this helps you. Let me know.

Jeep 2001 Cherokee Sport Rear Passenger door was hit. Lights will not go out.


Can you open the door? Most likely the door is not making (enough) contact with the plunger which shuts off the lights. If you can get to this plunger, until you get the door fixed, either tape the plunger to the "in" position, or tape something to the door itself to close the gap between the door and the plunger to make the plunger go in. I have had to use quarters (25cents) and duck tape until more permanent repasirs could be made.
Also: there should be on your dash: panel and interior light dimmer/turn off switch. You can turn this/set this so the interior lights do not come on at all.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

1998 Ford Taurus under the dash light on the passenger side will not go off, how do I shut it off?


Do all other interior lamps come on and go off when door is open and closed. Check dimmer switch to see if it is turned all the way up for interior lamps.

Interior lights won't come on


Hi! Further to my collegues advice I would be looking at the interior light switch on the light itself. There should be three positions, 1 lights on permanently, 2 lights on door open and finally 3 lights off completly.
Also make sure the driver and passenger door switches located round the perimeter are all clean and not corroded or stuck in.
There you are another problem Fix~Ya'd.

Overhead lights


check you dimmer switch. the dimmer switch is what controlles the interior dash lights and dome lights. you might have acidently hit the switch and it may have pushed it up from the position it was at. if you push the switch all they up than you interior light will come one even if you shut the car off and pull the key. turn the dimmer switch all the way down and see if it still does it. if not than wait until it gets dark and go outside and turn the swich up until ou can see the dash lights. but remember if you turn it up to far the interior lights will come on.
