I had the same problem after I welded on the exhaust. There was an electrical feed back through the system. Take the negative battery cable off for a couple minutes then put it on and the computer should have reset itself

This is controlled by the computer as you said. Most of those types of things have three choices: default-which is probably 10 seconds, on longer-which can be programmed in by dealer, off-programmed in by dealer. Your owners manual should have this info, but you'll probably have to hunt for it. Once you decide, it has to go to dealer to reprogram it to what you decide.

My interior light won't come on in my 1999 Buick Lesabre. I have checked the bulb & the fuse. Can anyone help me with this problem? Any ideas are sincerely appreciated.


Courtesy Lights
The courtesy lights come on under the following conditions:
?€¢
Any door is opened.


?€¢
The interior lamp switch is in the ON position.


?€¢
The keyless entry transmitter unlocks the doors (illuminated entry).

When the key is removed from the ignition switch with all of the doors closed, the courtesy lights light for approximately 25 seconds before fading out.
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times through the IP fuse block CTSY LP/PWR MIR fuse 6A via CKT 640 (ORN) through the body control module (MALL) to the courtesy lights via CKT 1732 (ORN). The MALL provides a ground through CKT 156 (WHT) for the courtesy lights under the following conditions:
?€¢
The MALL receives an input from a door being opened.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the interior lamp being turned ON.


?€¢
The MALL receives an input from the doors being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter.

The courtesy lamps then light.
When the courtesy lights are activated by opening and closing a door, the courtesy lights will remain on for approximately 25 seconds before fading out after all of the doors are closed. If the ignition switch is turned to START or RUN within the 25 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out. If a door is left open, the MALL removes battery positive voltage (B+) to the courtesy lights after 10 minutes. When the courtesy lights are activated by the interior lamp switch, the lights remain on as long as the interior lamp switch is in the ON position. When the courtesy lights are activated by unlocking the doors using the keyless entry transmitter, the lights remain on for approximately 40 seconds. If the doors are locked using the keyless entry transmitter within the 40 seconds, the lights immediately begin to fade out.
Body Control Module (MALL) Diagnostic Mode
For a detailed explanation of the MALL module diagnostic mode, refer to Body Control Module Cell 51.

HELP! Interior lights (map and dome) dim but do not go out. Fuse removed.


There is a short between the dome light and the door switches, this can be caused by something as simple as water damage. check all the wires and switches before you think it is the BCM.

If the headlight switch is turned fully to one side, it will keep the interior light on. Some models have the feature in the overhead light, that allows for 3 positions to be set. Position one lights the dome light when the door is opened. Position two keeps the Domelight on regardless of the door. Position three is the always off setting.

If the problem is not in the headlight switch or the Domelight settings, then check your rear Cargo door. Some even have a separate switch to turn on the interior light from the Cargo area so you can see what you are unloading.

If you find that none of the above solutions work, then you must have a doorjam switch that has come apart inside the doorjam. These are a bit more difficult to find because each must be removed without losing the wiring in a hidden area. But start with the Drivers door as it gets the most wear.

He could try to unsnap the light lens and remove the bulb. If you have underdash or door lights it may provide at least some lighting and you could do without the Dome light.

Dome light doesn't work nor does the cargo light, both have power when grounded.


Oddly enough if the lights get power and work when grounded, then all the door switches that act as grounds must have gone bad at the same time. Although most interior light also have a switch directly on the fixture that allows being turn always on or always off, as well as working when the door ground switch is opened.

Interior lights cargo lights remain on when doors closed switches will not turn interior dome light off or cargo lights when engine turned off and key removed from ignition and doodrs closed.


you need to check the door switches make sure that they work you can disconnect them and check to see wich one is bad you do this by opening only one door at a time and disconnecting it the one that turns the lights off is the bad one. and you can also check the dimmer switch sometime the wheel gets turned all the way over and the lights stay on also

My interior light and cargo light will not go off, even when my door is shut.


If the door ajar indicator on the cluster is also on, might want to soak the door latch with WD-40.
The door ajar and interior lights are turned on when the door latch is open. Some times the switch gets stuck, and a good soaking of WD-40 will release it. The door latch and the switch for the door are the same unit.

The rear cargo light won't turn off. This happened after I replaced a rear turn signal tail light bulb and a fuse for the horn. (These went out at the same time.) When the blinker light and horn were...


Hello! The instigator of this problem appears to be the the rear cargo lamp; Official name is rear dome light. You'll need a multimeter set on the X10 ohm scale to shoot this trouble. Leave the rear dome light bulb out. There are two switches involved; #1 the rear dome light on/off. #2 the right hand front door switch.

Pull the horn fuse out, remove the rear dome light cover, drop the rear dome light down to access the wiring and close all doors on the vehicle. Connect one lead of the ohm meter to the white wire and the other to body ground. If you read any resistance one or both of the two switches (dome light switch or right hand front door switch) is remaining closed when all doors are closed. Next disconnect the black lead from the dome light switch and see if reading changes to zero. If it does this is indicating that the dome light switch is defective. If it does not, disconnect the right hand door switch and take another reading at the same location. If you still measure any resistance, the black wire of the rear dome light is shorted to ground, if not then the right hand door switch is the culprit.

The reason the right hand door switch and not the left hand door switch is involved is the fact that opening the left front door would turn on the front dome light as well as the rear light. If both dome lights are staying on with all doors closed I would then involve both door switches in this test procedure. If your vehicle is a four door model then disconnect one door switch at a time while performing this test procedure.

The horn fuse also supplies power to the rear dome light, and I suspect the two events are related.

Interior lights won't come on when the doors are open.


there is a timer on the interior lights to turn off after 20 minutes.
one of your door switches are bad,and it tells the computer that a door is open and the lights are turned off,that makes sense.
a way to test this is to undo the battery for a minute. then see if the interior lights come on. one of the door switches is bad

You have likely figured this out by now but check the lift gate switch. It provides ground to light.
