The possible cause are bad brushes on the window lift motors. I had this same problem with my 97 camry. It turned out to be worn brushes. After an unsuccessful attempt to find replacement brushes, I had to buy a new motor. New or rebuilt motor and lift assemblies can be found at many parts suppliers on the web. The motors are not difficult to replace. Recommend buying a Haynes or Chilton auto repair manual that can take you through the steps to replacing same. Goodluck.

Peugeot boxer van 2007 changed interior light bulb blew fuse, renewed fuse, lights worked, but emissions lights on dash board came on and won't go out. Help

Try reading the OBDII with a code reader and see what it is then erase codes and see if it stays off ,could be more than one circuit on this fuse so the fuse blowing has thrown the light on for whatever reason ,Also try disconnecting the battery just out of interest for a few minutes and reconnect it might go out if your lucky

Windows won't go up or down and interior lights stay on

You have two separate (and unrelated) electrical issues.
(1) windows - probably the fuse is blown - replace. If it keeps blowing fuses, then you have a
short somewhere in the wiring to the window operator motors or the switch to raise/lower
the windows (any soda/latte been spilled on one of the switches lately?, or perhaps a window
left open overnight in a rainstorm?).

(2) interior light staying on - almost always a stuck/corroded/worn door switch - play with all
four & you'll find which one has gone marginal (97% of the time its drivers door switch,
since the driver's door gets more usage than all the other doors put together).

Alarm went off had to disconnect battery to shut off, door open light stays on, interior light stays on door locks and window controls will not work

O.k. this is a security feature of your alarm the car now essentially thinks that it is being stolen. In order to fix this issue you need to reset the alarm buy reconnecting the battery and using your electronic alarm sensor if you have one (if this doesn't work get new battery for alarm sensor)

The door sensor stays on when i open and close the side door on my 1998 ford windstar which causes the interior light to stay on.. what can i do to stop that from happening?

I had the same problem. Cheap way to fix is to remove fuse. Only problem with that is my power windows were on the same fuse so they wouldn't work without the fuse. Alternative was to remove the bulbs from interior lights and leave the fuse in. The door ajar light will remain on but at least your interior lights won't be on running down your battery.

Interior lights will not go out - door ajar light on

I have this same problem that I am trying to figure out what is causing it and how to fix it. I have taken the fuse out several times and I hate putting it back in everytime we need the lights or roll a window down, and taking it out when I turn the car off.......... if you want to take your fuse out it is number 14 (or the second row from the left and the 3rd fuse down) and it is a number 15 fuse I think.

Window, interior lights, car alarm and fuse keep on burning out

you have a short circuit or burned out wires somewhere, could be anywhere.
Try disconnecting the alarm, taking the bulb out of the interior lights, and putting in the fuse, if it blows again you know that the alarm or interior lights are not at fault, if it stays good replace the bulb and if it blows theres your faulty circuit, if it stays good then the windows are at fault.

Interior lights stay on and no power windows

It’s a wire that is part of the wiring in the driver side door.
If you wish to fix yourself, (disconnect battery and follow all safety measures per your manufacturer’s recommendations) there is a black rubber gusset (accordion style tube) that contains the wiring harness to the door. On the door side of the tube you will find tabs on the top and bottom you can squeeze together to pull back and reveal the harness connector that is also located closest to the door.
Disconnect the harness and pull back though a hole located in the area directly under the interior fuse box. This might not be the easiest task, so when you pull back the rubber tube, check for any broken wires. You can lightly pull on each wire to see if one is loose if you are not able to visually locate the wire in question.
Repair the wire using the best method available to you and reverse the removal. Return the harness back though the door, plug in the harness, and snap the tube back into place. I found this after a good deal of troubleshooting and had to fix the same wire in a different section about 2 years later. This should be recalled as I have fixed 2 friends with the same problem.
Remember also to be safe and if you need to replace any wires, contact your dealer for details on the repair. This is doable, just take your time and plan to be in the area working for at least 30 minutes to an hour if you are good at repairs.
Good Luck...
