Most cab lights have a three way switch on the light its self, position 1 lights off , 2 light on with door shut, 3 light on with doors open.

3. ON
Make sure the switch is in the middle (2) position.

Also, check the door switch to be sure it is functioning correctly.

Why the interior light of 1997 Acura rl stays on when then the door is closed.Even though the switch is set to door.

Do you have mirror above or near your front windshield? my lights stayed on a couple of times, and I had to get out my manual and see where to click them off. I think when I put my sun visor up it clicked it to the on position on the mirror. I don't have the same type car as you though, but that could be where your problem might be.

Interior lights will not go off

The interior lights are controlled by 2 fuses (accessory fuses , 1 in the kick panel under the dash and the other in the fuse box under the hood) , by door and trunk switches (located in the corner of the doors, (it depressed when a door is open) as well as a switch in the hood. try the following steps in the proceeding order

1.) try changing the hood light switch to off , there should be 3 settings (door, off, on) switch it to off , if its set to on it will remain on.

If the above fails chances are one of the door switch is shorting,

2.) open each door , 1 at a time , locate the switch the door pushes, Its on the car body and when the door closes it pushes in the switch. press each switch 1 at a time to find the shorting switch. once found , check that the door is closing properly and adjust toe lock by turning the screws and sliding it in until it works properly.

If the above fails chances are you have an electrical harness failure.

3.) pop the hood, locate the fuse box, locate the acc / accessory fues by using the diagram on the fuse box cover. remove the fuse. This will turn off all the accessory electrical so it wont drain your battery. Get the vehicle to a garage as soon as you could. Alternatively you can remove the fuse from the kickpanel under the dash. (here is a diagram on the cover).

In the unlikely case you cant locate the fuse, remove the negative battery pole, This will turn off all car electrical so your battery wont drain giving you enough time to get to a garage. Chances are it involves harness rewiring / relay failure which will need tracing and replacing and should always be done by a professional. Your vehicle is controlled by a computer and if the wires are shorted this can damage the cars cpu which will cost a lot to repair. So follow the above advice and if steps 1 and 2 fail will 3 is the best choice for you as well as a local garage.

There was a minor change for mine to work.. see below..

- you must park your Prius close to the gate opener, leaving it running (obviously not in the way of the gate closing)
- Hold the button the the mirror and then push your garage door remote button and hold until the light on the mirror starts to flasyh fast. THIS programs the button on the mirror, but not the garage opener - yet (this was key for me)
- locate the "learning button" on the opener itself
- press the "learning button" on your gate opener and then get back into the Prius within 30 seconds (more time than it sounds) and press the SAME Homelink button you just programmed above. I don't recall how long I held the pre-programmed button, but the light will flash as I recall.
- Then, when working the garage door, you may need to hold the mirror button for a good second for it to work - but I had tried for months to get mine to work, and finally after reading many posts, the above sequence worked on my 2008 Prius with my Lift Master, Security + rolling codes garage opener.

Just - program the button on the mirror with your remote FIRST.. the garage opener will not work.. then use the Learn button on the garage opener and the SAME BUTTON you just programmed.. and it worked great for me. Not programming the mirror button first will not work. Using only the Learn button will not work. You must program the mirror first with the remote, then use the learn button and the SAME button on the mirror. Hope this helps.

I purchased a used Donnelly 0110103 rear view mirror that has a compass and map lights. I'm going to install it in my Pontiac Vibe that has a mirror with map lights. The Donnelly has 4 wires (the Vibe has...

black with slim white=door switch
black with wide blue or wide dark green=accesories(switch controlled pos)
black with slim light green=live pos(always connected for map lamps)
If you wire it as such,map lamps would come on both when you open the door and with doors closed when you turn on the switches.

I need to replace passenger side mirror on 97 ford expedition

Both above answers are not right... I just replaced the Pass side power mirror assembly on my 97 Expedition. No heat, no directional.
The inside door panel must come off.
1. pry off interior triangular plastic trim piece inside of door at mirror area. Remove door panel screw at this area.
2. Pry off power window switch panel and remove door panel screw at this area.
3.Remove interior door light cover and remove screw at this area.
4. Remove plastic cover at door handle.
5. The interior door panel can now be lifted up to release it from it's fasteners.
6. Disconnect light and push power window switch assembly through the door panel and it can be set aside.
7. Disconnect mirror power at coupler.
8 Loosen three mirror mounting screws with 7/16 socket. DO NOT unscrew completely.. the will fall down the door cavity. Use a round magnet on holder to remove the screws completely.
9.Thread electrical connection into door panel and install mirror.
10. Smile when mirror works and drink a beer!
