Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

1 Answer

I was driving to work this morning and my interior

As I was driving to work this morning, the car started dinging (the sound the door is opened) and the interior dome lights were flashing on and off. Anyone know what the deal is with it? I called my local mechanic and he advised me it would be about $450 to repair... Any other (cheaper) suggestions?

How do I fix my interior light problem when driver door is open light dimes when closed turns on and stays on telling me door is open when not while driving and dinging starts happening have to scroll all...


On the interior light fixture there usually is a 3-position slide switch. positions are:
1. OFF
2. ON-WHEN-DOOR is OPEN
3. ON
Make sure the switch is in the middle (2) position.

Also, check the door switch to be sure it is functioning correctly.

My van dings all the time when under 20 mph and the light stay on for 15 min. after car is off. The door ajar light is on but all doors are shut. Is this an electrical problem? Is there a way to shut off...


one of the door/van loading door switches has failed it thinks a door is open so the the interior light stays on and the door open warning will ding the interior light should have a switch to disable it or take out the bulb but you cant stop the dinging until you find the faulty latch switch and fix it

Door ajar and interior lights won't go off!


open the door and there will be a small piece of plastic that can be pushed into and out of the door jamb. You will need to replace that because it is not telling the computer the door is shut.

Hi! I have a 2002 Cadillac Deville and yesterday I unlock the door with key pad and opened it and when I did I heard the chiming sound that it makes when you have the keys in the ignition with the door...


It may be trying to get your attention for an open door, trunk lid or other item requiring attention. Check your owner's manual for items that can cause it to chime.

Interior lights and warning dings go on with no error sign


Sound like the door that gets used the most often has a bad door switch??? Check the switch on the driver door and all doors. It might be broken, are not making good contact with the door to hold the switch made, or pushing the button in properally.
