Not sure if you still have this car/ problem? I just bought a 2001 ZX2 and had the same issue with the dome light staying on always in the door position.
The fix was replacing the under dash fuse box as the module on the back(warning chime module)contains the timer and supplies the ground for the dome lights which are wired hot all the time.
Bought one from a salvage yard for $35 problem solved.

It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

The turn siganl switch because the brake lights go through there. Otherwise, turn signals would not work with brakes on. 4 way flashers should work though

1998 buick lesabre dome light stays on while driving and doesn't go off when I turn the car off


Open the door and where the hindges bolt to the body of the car you should see a push button type switch.Once you have located the switch, wiggle it to see if it still has a snug fit, also work the button in and out to see if it will turn the dome light off and on.If you can not find the switch, but you find an empty hole about the size of the end of your babby finger then the switch probably came lose from vibration and fell down inside. It will half to be retrived and reinstalled.Repeat for each door untill you find the problem switch. The problem is usually with the drivers door because it gets the most use.

I have a 1998 ford escort zx2 and the back left


If you can still find a replacement left light lens of your 1998 ford escort zx2, you can replace it, of course. Just
take off the mounting screw of the lens, and take off the
defective lens. Then, you can mount the replacement.

2002 Ford Escort ZX2 Dome light stays on.


The door ajar/courtesy light switch that is mounted to the door latch inside the door is sticking, this is a very common issue with all late model Fords from 90's up.
