Try spraying some WD40 into the area on the door around the latch. Sometimes the oil from the WD40 will remove some moisture and corrosion and allow the door switch (usually on the lower part of the latch inside the door) to begin working again, but just temporarily. You will need to replace the door switch inside the door eventually. You can remove the door panel and spray it that way or replace it, but it takes a bit of skill and knowledge to get it off so watch a u-tube video demonstration of how to remove a door panel for your vehicle first.

96ChryslerCirrus: 'door' warning vs odometer miles, Dome light stays on.


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. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The dome light on the mustang will not shut off when the door closes.


that sucks!
Its probably a wiring problem.
If: You close the door, the light stays on, and the car says "Door Ajar / Open" (Idk if you have a screen on the dash) or shows the door open symbol / light, then its a problem with the switch.
If it doesn't say its open, then it is a wiring problem elsewhere.. I would pull the fuse, and get it checked out. I dont know what your conditions are with the ford warrantee, but if you have one, i would bring it in for warrantee repair!
Good Luck!

Dome light on door not closed


You probably have a bad door switch in the drivers door.You have to have the door panel removed to gain access to the switch.I believe it is on the outer door handle.It will have wires going to it.You can remove the dome light fuse for the meant time.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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.
