Possibly a door position sensor bad. I would suspect the drivers side door since it is opened most frequently

I have a p t cruiser and the interior lights don't turn off when I shut the doors can anyone advise me please?

Check the dashboard dimmer switch. On some models if you turn the dashboard display lights to the fully "on" position the interior lights come on, too.

Remote keyless entry module

First off we need to know if it is a factory or aftermarket alarm. Plus, whether you have a fob or not won't make the alarm malfunction. If I were to venture a guess you have an aftermarket alarm that has gone around the bend. But if it is a factory unit then defective door switches (the ones that turn off the dome lights when the door is closed) could be the problem. Also there could be a problem with the power door locks themselves but not real likely. The body module could have issues in the security section, again not real likely. Usually problems like this are found in bad grounds, switches, intermittent power feeds, or something similar. Even if one of the door jamb switches is just loose and able to shift around could cause weird things to happen. And don't forget the switches under the hood and trunk lid. You can try each door switch by just pushing it in and out and wiggling it around with your finger to see if it has a short or bad ground. If it does the dome light will go on and off as you wiggle the plunger and that may be your problem. Good luck. Intermittent electrical problems are the hardest ones to find.

Change your dashboard light switch/dimmer. It either has a bad connection, or is faulty altogether.

Electrical problem; while driving door ajar light comes on

it may be one of several things ...but sounds like the door switch is not completely engaging or it does and after either hitting a bump or just turning the corner it will break contact just enough to let the vehicle think its either open and then shut ...
in other words if you open the door and try using maby a piece of rubber hose and add it to the switch just a tiny piece or if there is an adjustment present to allow the switch to fully complete the circuit it should stop

as soon as you said the interior lights come on should have been a clue to the issue and being made of plastic they tend to wear bend and cause an issue as such .. on some vehicles there is a door panel that has a plastic stopper that meets the switch if yours is like that consider removing the retaining {plastic} insert screw and put a washer behind it to allow the 2 to meet at a shorter throw ..i hope you understand that .otherwise adjust the door switch if possible if that is not possible try a piece of cardboard temporiarily on all doors until you can decide if this remedies the issue and it should if so then consider replacing the switch or switches upon ensuring this is your issue

Door light and Interior light comes on-01 PT Cruiser

Hey there, I'm the guy with the same type problem that posted above you. You can turn off the dome light by the switch on the turn signal stalk (lever). Just rotate it to the "off" position. The interior lights on the dash and console will be dim, but you will barely be able to see the speed etc. Thats what I do.
As for the dome light staying on. Sounds like your problem is in the switch itself. I would start at the one that was just adjusted. with the door open you can flip the ting switch (the latch that closes the door) with a screwdriver and it will simulate the door being closed so you can fool with it while open.
Sounds like it could use some adjustment as it's not closing completely. It's 3 torx screws. loosen them and move the switch around a bit (you can get a little play) as the front door switch is in the latch itself. Hope this helps! and of course, if somone else has ideas please feel free to send to me, as I can't find where my switch is grounding. I'm guessing the BCM but can't find where. It's sad too, because I'm starting to really hate this car. Overheating, transmission leaks, now this...

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off

Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

Interier Light

It is the next ring in, on the same (left) signal lever with the headlights. Just turn it upward toward the full white circle. You can also shut off the interrior lights by turning all the way down to "off". Or dim your dash lights. This will circumvent the 8 minute delay when the door is opened. I can Email you the booklet if you need.
