The interior lights in Oldsmobile Silhouette

The interior lights in my Oldsmobile Silhouette are always on, unless I turn them off with the override switch. How can I diagnose where is the problem? Door switch? (there is no ajar message) relay problem?
Thanks.

    Ok. Do you know where is this relay? - manual doesn't tell.

    Sorry, I might be an idiot, but I don't know where are those relays. What I could find in the fuse box, it was not.

The problem is likely a faulty (sticking) relay - remove/replace the relay and check the lights extinguish.

    Sorry, I don't know.

    Try removing relays (one at a time) until you get one that controls the interior lights.

    (Take care, in that there may be more than one relay that will remove the lights supply).

    Regards,

    Sorry, I can't find any further info on the Oldsmobile - free electrical schematics are rare.

    You may have a an 'Illuminated entry" module somewhere on the vehicle that controls the courtesy lights relay.

    Perhaps someone more familiar with the Silhouette could respond.

unless you have worn your shoes down all the way it should be easy enough to hit it with a small sledge or hammer a couple time all the way around it. you may have to tap on back edge all the way around it until comes off. It isnt always the way it should be though.

Door Ajar Warning Light Stays On


Our Ford Expedition & an Olds Silhouette Premier & both did the same thing. Someone online said to spray the inside door where the metal connects with the frame & sensors are there with WD-40. We did & it fixed the problem. Maybe this will work for yours.
