Question about Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

My interior lights on my 2001 Jag were delaying too long (10 to 15 min.) after closing the doors. Had a very dead battery. Found the sunroof was ajar, and now the lights are delaying only 13 seconds. Is the delay related to the sunroof? What are the factors and the options that can regulate the delay? Can I turn off the interior lights completely (with a button or a fuse?)

Okay on that model the delay will be 10 min. if you open any door and close with the key not in the ignition and if you have the key in and do this then it is 20 sec. after door is closed and key is on.

there is no wayto turn it off. the only options are on and automatic.

this system is controlled by a computer so pulling a fuse will interrupt other things

Interior lights stay on wile i'm driving my 2005 lincoln navigator


Only one bad door switch should do that

The 20 min time out is the GEM or Body Module,
which is normal only because you have a bad switch,
otherwise it goes to sleep when either front door opens

Put radio on & open a door,the radio should go off
& kill the time delay if no issues exist

Interior lights staying on causing dead battery. also interior lights flash off and on when driving


Inside the door jamb is a little plunger the it pushed in when the door is closed. It sounds like it is not working properly. If it was working properly it turns on the interior lights when you open the door and turns them off when you close the door. Hope this helps.

Sunroof will not operate


The first thing to check is the motor it should be under the interior light for operation and next is the tracking system for the sunroof and try to lubricate it so the roof does not hang up these motors on volvo sunroofs are not that strong and even a stuck gasket around the top can make it stuck beacause of the rubber getting hot from the sun

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

Car won't start


Either an interior light or head lights were left on all night, or there's a dead short in the electrical system, or... the battery completely failed internally such as a weak spot or defect in the plates. At any rate, it all obviously points to the battery. Replace the battery.

Which fuse controls the interior lights


First, make sure the interior light switch has not been left on, either at the light itself (press to turn on, press to turn off) or at the headlight switch.

And don't forget the dimming feature in Chrysler products, where the lights don't just go off, but delay after closing the doors.

The fuse would be the interior lights fuse, most likely at the drivers end of the dashboard.
