On each door there is a small rubber switch which when door is open/closed activates/disactivates dome lights..One of them is faulty which you will need to test each manually.Open each door and press the switch with thumb and check if the dome switch goes off.This is one way to find faulty switch which in turn activates the light on the dashboard.

Car alarm start on his own,all doors are close,trunk as well.some time even the interior light came on in his own.what is the problem.


You probably have a bad switch on one of the doors that is triggering the alarm as well as the dome light. Close the car up. Walk around and jiggle each door until the dome light comes on or the alarm trips. Some cars have switches on the hood too. When you isolate the door (or the trunk or hood) that is the problem, replace the switch for that door. The switch is located on the frame of the car. You should be able to find it with the door open.

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?

Dashboard light comes on saying that one door is open but they are all closed even the trunk so dome lights wont come off


It could be that one door switch has fail or has become disconnected. Remove and inspect each door switch in turn the problem should be obvious when you find the faulty one. The door switches are normally mounted behind a small rubber dome in the door surround.

2001 Buick Century. door/truck light replacement


My Buick does the same thing if a door or thr trunk lid are not completely closed. They look like they are but upon opening them and slamming them shut the problem stops. Possibly there is some play in one of them. I would say try to see if there is any play in the doors. I would get in and close the doors then try to push on them and see if one if them moves. if it does that is probably the culprit. It may need to be adjusted to close tightly.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up


If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

No dome light when passenger door open


Since the passenger door doesn't get used as much as the drivers door, check to see if the switch is not just stuck. It is a little button with a spring that opens up and turns the light on. It is located on the hinge area of the door and when the door closes it shuts off the switch, if it is not stuck then I would suspect said switch.

Dome/ Trunk Lights don't work


The dome light problem is likely that the crappy switches that get pushed in when the door closes don't make contact when opened. You can find them at the lower right corner of the door sill. (Driver's side door. Same relative position on the other doors.) Take a phillips screwdriver and remove them, AFTER removing the correct fuse. Spray the inside of the switches with contact cleaner. Grab the black nub of the switch and twist it while holding the switch body still.

The trunk has a weird setup. the switch contact is where the trunk latch is. When the trunk is closed, the simple spring switch is held open so the light turns off. When trunk is open, the switch closes and the bulb lights. Hope this helps.
