Oh Miss Luz, there is a reason. Either the interior light button on the door is faulty, possibly the white wire(ground) has come off the button and is touching the body and turning the lights on, or the rheostat that turns them on is at fault and making the connection when your not looking. Either way, you have to have it checked out. Try the rheostat that turns the interior lights on and dims the dash lights when turned to the left. Turn it all the way to the left and leave it that way overnight. If the lights aren't on, you've found the culprit.

How do I gete my interior lights to quit coming on all of a sudden for no reason and the car is off?


You could pull the fuse, but that will probably kill the memory power to the radio. The problem could be one of the door sensors.

I have a 1994 Buick Park Ave and the interior lights have just started coming on and off during the night for no reason and the car is not running.


These lights are actuated only by connection of the ground wire(white) to the body to complete the circuit. The only place these connections are made is at the door buttons and the rheostat on the dash that dims the dash lights also when knob is turned counter clockwise to dim the dash lights and clockwise to brighten them and on past that bright point to turn on the interior lights. One of the door wires may be bared and close to the body and arcing, making the lights come on and when the wire warms it pulls away from the body and lights go out. You need to remove the kick panel to access this wire and see if it's still plugged onto the back of the button connection and check for bare spots on wire.

Why does my 96 Cadillac Eldorado battery keep discharging?


First step have the battery tested, a bad cell can cause a internal drain and kill the battery, if the batt is ok then check for interior lights like visors that stay on or interior light that come on by themselves at night due to defective door switches.

Warning light check engine light turns on, sometimes after 10-20 minutes drive. The engine is perfectly OK. Indicator light is off after the car has "rested" during the night.


You may have a sensor malfunction. Have a mechanic run the codes and see if there are any stored in the computer. Just because the engine runs OK now does not mean it will continue to do so. The reason the light goes off after the vehicle has set over night may be due to the vehicle not sensing the issue after the long passage of time, until you begin driving again.

The lights will go off sometime during the next four hours. This car does not have the automatic lights. One night they came on by themselves.


interior lights or exterior

most interior light concerns like yours are due to a door ajar switch issue

exterior lights could be something a little more serious

The tail lights and interior dash lights have quit in 95 neon


Well, check the fuse box in the engine compartment...then check the fuse on your side panel at the end of the dash...last place, Flashers are located either on the bottom of the fuse block or on a module under the dash. They are replaced by simply pulling them straight out. Note that the prongs are arranged in such a way that the flasher must be properly oriented before attempting to install it. Turn the flasher until the orientation of the prongs is correct and simply push it firmly in until the prongs are fully engaged.

2002 Dodge Van towing a Rock Climbing Wall. No


I would think that the wires from the RCW (rock climbing wall) that control the running lights are wired to the interior dash lights of the van, and a fuse blew, killing the above mentioned lights. Check the fuse block for a bad fuse, probably labeled inst lights or inst lgt. Did you make the trip there in daylight, and trip home at night? The fuse for the dash lights couldn't handle the extra drain of the RCW running lights.

Alarm keeps going off at night


I don't know the exact reason, but my dad had a problem similar to yours. He got a device from Ace Hardware (it was a decoding mechanism I believe) that you hook up to your car (on his car, which was an Oldsmobile, it was on the left interior of the driver's side door rite up by the steering wheel area) for only about $15-$20 because his engine light was always going off for no reason. Yours may have something to do with a faulty wire somewhere along where the alarm is, though. The decoder doesn't exactly let you know precisely what the problem is though (I believe it has a manual though), and my dad is a mechanic, so be careful before you try anything yourself, as you may do more harm than good. Good luck.
