2004 Lincoln LS - Dome lights stay on

Started this morning... Can't find a on-off-auto switch. Seems to be on or off only, but whatever I do, the light stay on even while driving. Matter of time before battery goes dead...

    Fixed it 2 minutes after posting here...

    The dash light dimmer was all the way up and was overriding the manual switches on dome. Turn that down a notch, and all the lights went off. The owner didn't realize she had adjusted it by mistake.

    Thanks for your help!

The dome light usually is controlled by the light switch. When you turn the switch all the way to one side it will turn on the light. It is not on the autolamp system.

There is also a manual control on some of the overhead lights for map reading. These are push switches on the sides of the lights or even the clear cover.

One of your doorjam switches is shorted if you can not turn the light off any other way.

Finally, take a heavy rag and use it to remove the bulb from the fixture after you remove the cover. The cover usually squeezes smaller and the tabs will release from the fixture.

How to remove the dome or map light on a 2001 lincoln ls

It snaps in place
There will be two places on each side, you need to push on,while pulling down. It is called an overhead console
Your best bet,is to fabricate a plastic tool,like a plastic putty knife, to use .
Every thing on the LS seems to snap together The challange is to figure it out,without breaking something

Dome lights

Check your dimmer switch for the dash guages. If it is all the way up the dome light will not turn off.
