2005 Jeep liberty dome lights do not come on when doors open and dash lights are dimmed


that's programmable on all cars.
old cars, a lever on Dome lamp or others on the HL stalk a mode.
HL = head lamps
my new car no light levers.
IT has a party mode, cute how now that old feature for 100 years
gets a name. PARTY, as all doors open for tail gate party and no light drain on battery. (death) my 08 JK has that.(wrangler)

all this is in the operators manual. in the glove box.
page 94 in mine (word not in index.party)
quote
When a door is open and the interior lights are on,
rotating the dimmer control all the way down to the OFF
detent will cause all the interior lights to go out. This is
also known as the "Party mode" because it allows the
doors to stay open for extended periods of time without
discharging the vehicle's battery." unquote, RTM?

im sure its in your book but a different page,
i got the PDF for my car, (all of them) and can search any key word.
a blessing that is....

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

Both head ligth and tail ligth is out on the left side of the car I think it is a fuse but which one.


The Fuse box is located on one side of the hood.The ECU fuses are generally behind the glove compartment.I hope there isn't any wiring issue with the car that has shorted the fuse.Locate the fuse box under the hood, open its case cover.On the cover either on the outside or inside you would see a diagram with fuse ratings.TAIL stands for rear lights, HEAD is headlight.replace the fuse if u find them bad but make sure you put ones of the same ratings.if again they go off then check for any wiring fault, and if they go bad again make sure you have noted what you did exactly that put them off, whether it was on pressing the brake pedal, or turning on the parking/head lights switch.

Message center in dash says cargo light is on , But is not and dome lights do not work at all


get your owners manual out and make sure that your dome light and cargo light switches are in the proper position. there are usually 3 positions, always off, always on, and on when door open. then make sure that your bulbs are good. if you can do this then you are in the top 10% of the mechanically gifted and should consider a new career through MIT.

now if the switches are all in the proper, on when door open, position and the bulbs are good then you have a bad push button switch for the cargo door. this is in the door jamb somewhere and merely unscrews or pops out with a little sideways pry. 90 percent of the time the light switch is in the always off position so replacing the switch or bulb will get you nowhere.

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.

Tail,dome and front corner lights come on when battery connected


Have you checked to see if your alternator is charging now and is your solenoid burnt or blown will it crank over? these would be ideal locations to start test battery to to see what it is holding for charge level. Sometime local automotive part stores offer a test program in store like canadian tire test it before you replace it bring in the part and test it!! are you in Canada?
