If you can remove the switch. Then hook the 2 wires together, coming in to switch and out. If it works properly, then it is a bad switch causing this. Good-Day!

My interior dome light won't go off in my 1997 Chevy lumina please help!! Don't want my battery to go dead :(


Disconnect your battery or remove the dome light bulb. Either there is a switch at the light that you hit and made it stay on or the door switch is broken.

2000 chevy 2500 (new style) parking lights wont shut off


The parking lights staying on and the left turn signal not working may not be related, the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb, turn on the left signal and see if all the bulbs light up if not replace the burnt one, if they all light, the turn signal flasher may be at fault ( it can work with one side and not the other), as far as the parking lights staying on, check the door "pin" switch that controls the interior lights (are the interior lights staying on too?), since the chimes are staying on even with the keys on , I would suspect the door pin switch, probably the drivers side. I believe there may be a timer on the parking lights that turn them off after several seconds after the door is closed, this may be at fault if not the pin switch. newer cars and trucks also leave the reverse lights on for a while after the door is closed.

Interior lights wont go out


Check for a faulty switch inside the door jam. If the switch is broken or pushed into the holder, it will not open the circuit thus the light will stay on. You may have to remove the bulb until you have time to replce the switch. Good luck

Ok, today I replaced/removed several exterior lights: 1) I replaced the left headlight 2) I removed a burned out bulb from the high mount brakelight (local part store was out of stock, coming in...


I can help you out with the left turn signal not blinking. Maybe it's a flasher or the light bulbs aren't getting current through the wiring.

I can't help you out with the interior gauge lights not turning on when you turn the headlamps on. It may have to do with the headlamp switch, though.

I've never seen the lights on the radio not dim when the headlamp switch is turned on. hm.

Good luck on this repair.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

Interior light stay on with doors closed and switch off, had to remove fuse.


Could be a door switch gone bad, but my gut feeling is that the module that controls the interior lights (which may be part of a body control computer on that car -- I'm not sure) went south. The lights are almost never controlled directly by the switches any more -- that's why they can stay on for a minute after you get in and shut the door, turn on when you pull the door handle, fade off instead of turning of abruptly, and all of the other neat tricks today's cars do. Some have a separate module to do these tricks and others incorporate it into a computer that runs all kinds of things (interior lights, wipers, 4WD control, etc.) I'd certainly check the door switches first -- they're cheaper. However, as I said, my gut is saying that it's that module.

Ignition switch


YOU PROBABLY HAVE DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS, WHICH ARE ON A TIMER OR OPTICAL SENSOR. AS FAR AS THE INTERIOR LIGHT, CHECK THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH, WHICH EITHER ROTATES OR PULLS OUT, DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU HAVE. ALSO, CHECK THE BULB FOR THE INSIDE LIGHT. THEY DO GO BAD AFTER A WHILE.
