SOURCE: the interior lights stay on and the door ajar

Find the lamp push button on each door.
Open one door, and only one door (or tailgate).
Push the lamp button IN at that door. If light goes out, then that particular push switch needs adjustment or replacement.
Cl;ose door and open another door. Push button IN.
Keep doing this until you find faulty door push button.

Which door was it?

Interior lights run battery down when car is turned off.


Are you saying the interior lights don't shut off after the door is closed, or that the interior lights, when they're on for a short time, run the battery down?
If the lights stay on when they should shut off, there could be a bad door switch that's not registering that the door is closed.
If the lights being on for a short time when the car isn't running is running the battery down, your battery may be getting close to the end of it's lifespan & need changed.

While driving down road the interior lights won't shut off. I am sure it is a matter of the wrong button or setting but not finding answer in owners manual.


Interior lights are usually activated manually by the dimmer switch. When you turn your dashboard lights all the way up to bright, there is usually a small click that will turn on the interior lights as well. Just slightly turn the dimmer down until the click shuts off the unwanted lights. Good luck

I have a 97 Buick LeSabre that the interior lights give a light show. It will run the battery down what could be wrong with it? I even took some of the fuses out and they still will flicker off and on.

Interior lamps willnot shut off have to dissconnect the battery every time alsoits not in the lampswitch.


it is probably in the door jamb. Look for a plunger(black) or a sliding switch. Unscrew it, take off the wiring. It should shut them off, you just wont have lights when you open that door. Try all the doors until it goes off.

Security light stays on and occasionly something runs down battery overnight .since i lost my keys with remote opener these problems have come up. this car is a 1994 buick park ave ultra.


One of the door pin switches is faulty, Interior light must be staying on and draining the battery. If you don't see the dome light staying on possibly the trunk switch is bad.

Dim interior lights, power locks wont work......


Try looking at your battery. Check the cables to make sure they are tight and clean. Brush the corrosion off with a wire brush. Now, if you have a wiring schematic, find the ground for the interior lights and clean it up too. Oh, put vasoline on it, and the battery cables, to keep them corrosion free. Check the other grounds in the car cabin too.
