Check the door switchsensors,
There is a little switch inside each door frame that registers if you closed the door.
That activates the dome light etc,
one of them is probably not working proper and i am guessing its the the one on the drivers side.
Push it a few times hard in and out....to see if anything happens although it probably needs to be replaced.

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 ?

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

1999 ford tarus dome light and brakes stay on for long time when i shut off the car draining my battery continuously. I need to know how and where I can find the switch, and how to flip it. Also I am not...


Hi


Check the brake-pedal switch. This small button behind the brake pedal is activated when you press down on the brake pedal and makes the brake light go on. Press the switch by hand to see if it's stuck. If it is, pressing it may force the stuck part.

Find the fuse for the brake light and pull it out. Remember to put it back in before driving again

Find the brake light bulbs and remove them. Remember to put them back in before driving again.

Disconnect the negative battery cable. You will have to reconnect it again to start and drive your car.

For the dome lights this can be a symptom that can be caused by a bad door switch. A bad switch could be sending a door open condition to the computer .Also check the dome light switch first. Make sure the right setting is being used. Normally it has 3 settings (1 - on always, 2 - on when door is open, 3 - off always). If the setting is on 2 and the problem still exists then check and/or replace the door jamb switches. These exist in each door jam and switch the light on and off based on a whether the door is open or closed.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

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.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

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?

Over night the battery is dead


Put a 12v test light between the positive terminal and the battery cable.If the light is bright the draw is to much.A dim light is fine.if the light is bright,plug one fuse at a time until light dims.DO NOT cause a draw by leaving a door open etc while testing.DO NOT try and start the car or turn the key on during this test.Once you have found the fuse that causes the most draw,if you want to save $ you can just pull this fuse overnight or wire that circuit with a relay to unpower it when the vehicle is switched off.
