How do I get my dome light to turn off if it stays on indefinitely after the doors are shut?


Hi, have you checked the switch at the dome light, the switch usually has 3 positions, 1 for off, 2 for on when a door is open and 3 for on all the time, just move the switch to the appropriate position.
Another thing to check is the door switches, located in the door frame where the door will close against them (usually covered by a rubber grommet in modern vehicles) open one door at a time and try pushing the switch making sure it moves freely in and out and check if the light goes out when pressed right in, if you find a faulty door switch it will need to be replaced.
Trust this helps

Middle light on my celing will not turn if off


  • So your dome light is what you are referring too? Make sure your dim control is turned so the dome light is not set to on. There is a switch on the door that when the door is opened and closed the dome light goes on and off. Remove it and clean the contacts and try to see if that helps. If not you may need to replace the switch?

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.

Intearior dome lights stay on


sounds like one of the door ajar switches is stuck. buy a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and open each door and spray the door latch assembleys really good then close and open each door 10 to 15 times this will usually free up the stuck switch also make sure the switch that turns the dome lamp on is off . its the switch that dims and brightens the lights in the speedometer area. its located beside the headlamp switch

Dome light


Might sound funny but check the rheostat knob that dims the interior lights, sounds like its set to always on. Check the dome light too, some have always on and on when door is open settings.
