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.

    It has only numbers and no diagram to tell which fuse goes to what.

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.

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 ?

What causes the battery to go dead?

Old age usually. A draw on the battery that should not be there will drain it. If your dome light ,hood light, radiio, trunk light is staying on drawing amps without your knowledge it will drain the battery. If your alternator is not putting voltage back to the battery it will stay drained. (Bad Alternator) Your local autozone will check it for you for free.

Please help dome lite will not go off battery goes dead!!! Anyone know how to fix this roblem

Check the plastic dome light switch which is located inside the driver door frame near the front of the vehicle. There should be a plastic buttom which gets depressed when the door goes shut, thus turning off the dome light. Sometimes, these buttons can get broken or damaged for numerous reasons and stick in, hence permanent dome light.

Battery goes dead after a couple days. was told it could be anti-lock break hard and expensive are these to replace

Your battery going dead every couple days has absolutly nothing to do with your anti-lock break module. (unless it is causing a short or something and staying on-which i doubt.) Have you ever thought that maybe the battery may be dead and old and need replacing. you should test to see how strong the battery is first with a volt meter or load tester. batterys go dead all the time- more so this time of year where it starts to get cold out. If your battery is new or just got it. (usuaslly 2 or 3 years you should be fine). - it may be your alternator isnt charging the battery anymore. Make sure all dome lights are off when the doors are closed. or that nothing else is left on

1996 ford windstar interior lights stay on battery goes dead

One of the door "sensors" (Door light switches) are to blame - they are usually mounted in the body, and determine the door is open (door position) to supply the ground to the lighting circuit...You can either locate and replace the faulty one, (unplugging each from the back-side removes them individually from circuit)--(Remember to shut all doors, then open one door and remove the connector to each switch to eliminate it from the circuit - until the light goes off- when it goes off- you have found yor culprit) or just pop-out the dome light bulb if it is a high miles car that you aren't interested in repairing,,,,but want the battery to stay charged....Hope that helps - the switches are usually about $5 or $6 each I think,,,,so it's just a bit of effort and time.

2004 Lincoln LS - Dome lights stay on

The dome light usually is controlled by the light switch. When you turn the switch all the way to one side it will turn on the light. It is not on the autolamp system.

There is also a manual control on some of the overhead lights for map reading. These are push switches on the sides of the lights or even the clear cover.

One of your doorjam switches is shorted if you can not turn the light off any other way.

Finally, take a heavy rag and use it to remove the bulb from the fixture after you remove the cover. The cover usually squeezes smaller and the tabs will release from the fixture.

Good alternator & battery, but battery goes dead just sitting

The regulator could be sticking in the alternator. Unplug the alternator and see if the battery goes dead. I replaced an alternator once and the new regulator was bad.
