The lights might be on a relay. If so you can find the relays under the dash to the left of the driver. Usually with the fuses.

If not then there has to be a ground short in the wiring harness somewhere. Ground shorts are difficult to find.
There could be a rare problem with a bulb. You could try removing the bulbs one at a time to see if a bad bulb is the cause.

Hope this helps.

Change battery and alternator but 08 Silverado battery goes dead after turning off


You have a current drain in your system. Using an ammeter identify the amount of drain. then pull fuses one by one until the drain disappears. Now you have the circuit that is responsible for draining your battery. You have to check all of the peripherals on that line.

Why battery goes dead overnight


Something is still connected after you shut off the truck and it is draining the battery. Finding it is a trial and error process of disconnecting things until you find the problem.
First, have you added anything to the truck and then after that the problem started? If so, check that first or any wiring near where whatever it is was installed. The usual issue is that a hot lead that is always on is now grounded and that is what is draining the battery.

Interior lights will not turn off


have a load test done on the battery as it appears that it has a faulty cell. 2 hours for an internal light to flatten the battery indicates that the battery is no good as an interior bulb draws around 5 watts and on a good battery that would amount to around 24 hours usage. Besides all the other problems indicate a lower than required voltage.

My lights inside my 1998 caravan stay on when i turn off the switch,but they go off when i close the doors.all i hear is a clicking noise in van and my battery keeps going dead


Just look in your Manual and find the fuse that controls your interior lights. check the relay for the interior lights, if you have one ! the clicking has to be a relay for interior lights. good-day !

Interior lights staying on causing dead battery. also interior lights flash off and on when driving


Inside the door jamb is a little plunger the it pushed in when the door is closed. It sounds like it is not working properly. If it was working properly it turns on the interior lights when you open the door and turns them off when you close the door. Hope this helps.
