Open the drivers door and look at the left side of your dash...should see a flat pry off panel labled fuses...Some fuse slots are marked with what they control...dome light will be included with dash-lights, radio, windows etc...It would be best if you have an owners manual to confirm the exact fuse...(probably controls more than just the dome light...Are you sure ALL of the door sensors are clean and working? Locate each switch at the closing spot on each door...spray with lubricant PB Blastor, wipe off excess...probably a dirty door switch, not the dome light...Hope this helps.

Some fuse boxes have a diagram on the box cover.
Hope this is true.

You don't need to replace the fuse box , an you don't have a dead short to ground ! The fuse would blow ! You have a parasitic drain on that fuse . You need to go to http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html free wiring diagrams an power distribution diagrams , see what all other fuse's are feed from that an pull them out one at a time till the draw stops. There are some good videos on youtube showing how to do this ! How To Perform Parasitic Draw Test EricTheCarGuy You'll need a DVOM !

How do I find out which fuse is for my dash board lights when I dont have my manual?


The door ajar light doens't have a separate fuse. But you can probably fix the problem in 15 minutes:
  1. Make sure all doors and trunk close tightly. Lean hard against each door, starting with the driver's, because it is the most likely since it gets the most use. Watch the light. If it goes out, you're halfway there - you've located the problem door.
  2. Squirt some WD-40 into each door's switch. They may be located near the hinge, or near the latch. Press the button repeatedly and then wipe it off. That may fix the problem.
  3. Next, it could be the alignment of the door and strike plate on the jamb. Adjust the latter until the light goes out.
If that doesn't do it:
  1. Dont worry about the battery going dead from the indicator light staying on - it draws too little current. But if a dome light (or trunk light) stays on, it will drain the battery in a number of hours.
  2. You didn't say whether the dome light stayed on. If so, or if you have any other information, please post it and I'll try to help you determine the next steps.
Has this helped ?

Sounds like you might have what's called a parasitic draw on your battery. Parasitic draw is an electrical component staying on after you turn the car off (that isn't supposed to be staying on) and draining the battery over night. This can be caused by a multitude of things- the light in the glovebox staying on, an aftermarket accessory incorrectly installed to your vehicle, or malfunctioning, a factory component in the car malfunctioning and staying on, a power seat switch stuck on... the list goes on and on. The easiest things to check would be your dome lights, trunk lights, sun visor lights, glove box lights, and seat switches. Make sure the lights are all off after you take the key out and close the doors. Make sure none of the power seat switches are stuck on. If you can't find anything checking the lights and seats, you're going to need a digital multimeter connected to the battery to measure amps, to measure the actual parasitic draw. Once you establish how much parasitic draw there is (30 MilliAmps or less is acceptable), you're going to need to start pulling fuses one at a time to find out where the parasitic draw is coming from. When you pull a fuse and the parasitic draw on the meter goes away, you've isolated the circuit. Then you'll need to find what on that circuit is using power when it shouldn't be.
Good Luck :)

96 Suburban has no power to the starter switch & other electrical problems


You may need a shop to look at it, or get a used shop manual from Ebay to get the necessary wiring diagrams. The problems could be related, such as the key switch or the main wiring harness.
You say the dome light fuse is draining the battery, is one of the interior lights staying on ?

(1997 GMC Jimmy) Battery will randomly go dead


I would check for a draw. You can do this by disconnecting the negative cable from the battery and hooking a test light from the cable to the battery. The light will be on if something is taking power off of the battery such as, dome light, glove box light, radio ect. make sure to have doors shut and everything off when you do this so it wont give you a false reading. If the light is on, you have a draw. if it is off you dont have a draw. Then from there you can figure out where the draw is coming from by opening the drivers door and accessing the fuse panel(OPENING THE DOOR WILL KEEP THE LIGHT ON BECAUSE IT WILL OPEN TH ECIRCUIT FOR THE DOME LIGHT, YOU CAN TAPE OR HOLD THE SWTICH INSIDE THE DOOR JAMB TO CLOSE THE CIRCUIT)when you access the fuse panel you can pull each fuse 1 at a time until the light goes off, when the light goes off. check what the fuse is for, that is where your draw is coming from. Common draws come from a faulty radio or glove box light stays on.

My dome lights will not work in 1995 ford contour.  I believe it is the fuse but need diagram of box to know which one to replace


the fuse box itself is usually under the dash on the driver side and the lid of the fuse box should have the diagram of what goes to what but if there is not one then try a Ford dealer for a diagram or get a 12 volt tester and check the fuses that way to see which is which
