Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

2003 Dodge Ram 1500. The interior lights (dome) no longer turn off. About 5 to 10 seconds after the doors are closed, the interior light are suppose to dim then go out. Mine start to dim but come right back on and never go out. I thought there might be a timing relay or some type of controller, but I can't find one in the wiring diagrams. Any ideas as to what is causing the lights to stay on?

One of the door switches is not making contact when the door is closed.

I have the 2007 RAM 1500, I know what you mean about the dimming feature.

OPen one door at a time, and work the switch back and forth, and then hold it to see if the lights go out. If this doesn't work, you'll have to pull the switches out to find the bad one

Light won't turn off when door is closed on 2003 ford explorer


2 things to look for. the switch on the dome light itself and the door switches. These switches make a ground connection so the bulb will light. The dome light switch may be faulty allowing current to flow all the time. The door switches do the same with one exception. The wire going to each door switch can become pinched or come in contact with a sharp body part causing the dome light to stay on. Check the obvious first before you start tearing the interior panels apart.

Interior of car is dark at night.


There should be a button inside the door arch, on the hinged side, that activates the interior lights when the door is opened, this button also turns the light off when the door is closed.
Find this button and push / activate it manually with your hand.
If the light is not turning on and off, check that the switch on the interior dome light is in the "DOOR" position, not the OFF or ON position. this is usually the middle position.
Check all the Auto door light buttons on all doors, you may find one that is loose (not springing back into position) this will need replacing as it could be the cause of the interiour light on working automaticly.
I hope some of this helps

Dome light will not go off unless all of the lights are turned off manually.


Dome light means your refering to the interior light then if so look at the door switches as one of them is damaged or fallen apart and touching earth causing the light to stay on ,most like switch to fail is the drivers door as this gets the most use .

2003 ford explorer driver side door opens and closes by itself and interior lights stay on while driving


The opening and closing by itself is either the door being out of alignment or the Door pin being worn and in need of replacement. As far as the interior lights staying on, look for the brightness control for the dashboard lights. If that is turned all the way to the brightest setting there is a position just past that which turns the interior lights on continuous. Make sure it is not in that position. If it is not in that position and the lights are staying on with all doors closed, to include the rears, and you have checked the switch on the dome light itself to make sure it isn't set to ON, then the problem is a switch in one of the door jams being grounded or a wire was tapped into the power circuit for the dome light that has grounded. This happens when the LoJack installer or Alarm installer makes the mistake of tapping the light circuit for power.

Dome lights will not go off........Which fuse makes the dome lights off. This will run the battery down.


The fuse should be marked interior light or dome. The fuse will solve your issue. They are likely in the cab.

Lamp out warning lights keeps going on and off on 2003 dodge ram


Sorry to hear that,

When it comes on, check Your Head Lights, Turn Signals, Tail Lights and Brake lights.

If your lights are all functional, sounds good,
that sensor is for all your lights, including your interior, under hood,

If your door doesn't close right it can set it off

I'd suggest to bring it in to a shop and let them look for loose/ bad/ broken connections but $_$ concerns suggest to keep general watch over your light functions

Interior Dome Lights will not turn off


The fault is most likely to be the drivers door micro switch.
Open your car door and push the microswitch button in and out a few times. This will probably make the light go off short term.
Long term just replace the switch.
