Check to make sure your light switch inadvertently did not get turned on to the dome light position. If it has a light adjustment dial, turn it all the way down or off.

SOURCE: interior dome light stays on when driving.

Sounds like the dome light has been turned on using the switch on the dash. Most of the time the dash dimmer switch is set up so that if the dimmer is in the maximum position, the dome light can be turned on. If the dome light has been turned on like this, it still will turn off after some time to save your battery. Then when you unlock the door with the remote, it goes back to the same state it was when it was left in - "ON". Check for this switch on the dash, and roll it to get it off of the "ON" position.

SOURCE: door ajar dash trouble and dome light stays on even if all doors

The door sensors will need to be replaced. A screws can be removed and then a wire can be taken of and you then can replace the switch.

SOURCE: The dome light does not turn off and the door ajar

the problem is door ajar switch located on one of the door latches just inside the door. what usually works is spraying wd40 or an electronic lubricant prayed liberally into the door latch and then opening and closing the door several times. the stuck switch is usually on the door that is the least used door like the passenger side rear. let us know how you make out.

Light won't turn off when door is closed on 2003 ford explorer


2 things to look for. the switch on the dome light itself and the door switches. These switches make a ground connection so the bulb will light. The dome light switch may be faulty allowing current to flow all the time. The door switches do the same with one exception. The wire going to each door switch can become pinched or come in contact with a sharp body part causing the dome light to stay on. Check the obvious first before you start tearing the interior panels apart.

In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1999 mercury sable wagon door ajar idiot light stays on and in turn dome light stays on where is the switch if that is the problem


It's probably one of the switches in the doors. Have someone walk around the car and push in on each door to see if the ajar light will go out. If it does, the door may just need to be adjusted to close tighter. If it doesn't, you may need to pull the switches out to see if one is bad.

The interior lights are controlled by a combination of door switches and manual switches. There is usually a centralized controller that receives ground signals from switches in each door, when opened. If any of the switches sends a ground signal, the controller turns on the lights. Any given light may also have a manual switch that can turn the light on and perhaps off, though there are usually some lights that cannot be turned off without closing all doors. Many controllers incorporate a delay and perhaps also a dimmer to allow the light to continue for some time after the last door is closed.
If not that, the most likely cause is one of the door switches stuck on (closed). This can be caused by a failure of the switch or a consequence of the door lock being adjusted too loose. A good test for this is to have someone go around the car and push in on each door to see if one of them will turn the light off. Any door that can turn the light off when pushed must have it's lock adjusted in tighter. If this test doesn't fix it, check the individual switches. If you can locate the switches, pull them out of the car body. If the lights go out, the switch is bad. In case the switch has two wires rather than one, pulling the connector off the switch should have the same effect. Test each switch in this way. If you have all switches disabled and the lights are still on, the problem is likely to be either one of the switch wires grounding out to the car body or the interior lights control module shorted on.

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

1997 Tarus dome light and floor lights will not go out.


This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.
