There are two really easy solutions to this problem:

1) Check your owners manual for a door defeat fuse. It should be behind the glove box. removing this fuse will prevent the interior dome from coming on when the doors open. CAUTION: Doing this will also turn off the noise that alerts you when your headlights and/or interior lights are still on. Failure to turn these off will give you a dead battery.

2) Head over to http://www.quadratec.com and look for a pair of door switch clips. These will keep your door switches depressed when running without doors. You will have to remove them before putting the doors back on and I lost my first pair in a week.

Hope this helps. Tread Lightly!!

Thats because of the little black button in door jams on cars. when your door shuts it pushes the button in, when your door opens the light comes on.

I have a 1995 F350 crew cab with keyless entry and the dome lights controlled by...


There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

Alarm won't work the roof door do not light on accord 1994


Check the dome light override switch lockated on the dome light itself, then check the fuse for "CTSY Lights" and finally, check the ground attachment by removing the lens cover of the dome (roof) light, an removing the plastic housing of the dome light by either removing a screw, or simply prying on the sides of the plastic housing, you should see a wire screwed into the roof metal.

My interior lights stay on even with the doors closed and the dome override button won't turn them off either


This is a short on the dome lamp assembly. It is possible that the ground wire from the dome to switches is short.
remove assembly and check.

No. my dome light won't shut off. how do I shut it off


Check the light switch on the dash and see if it is turned on for the dome light, if so turn it off and the dome light should go off. Check if the dome light it self has a on/off switch button on it. If this was not the problem, check the push button switch at each door by opening the door and holding the button in, if you have a delay light system on your car, you will have to hold the button in for awhile till it kicks the dome light off. If this did not fix the problem, remove each door switch and unplug the wire going to it, use a volt meter to check if the switch works on and off when you push the button in and out, if the switch is bad, replace it, you can buy them at a local auto parts store or dealer. If the switch was bad just leave the wire unpluged till you can replace it, this way the dome light should go out

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

1995 taurus dome light and door lights won.t go


One of the door switches is bad. Try spraying wd4o into all the latches, sometimes this will free up the switches. It might take a couple of days. If it doesn't work you'll have to unhook one at a time to find out which one is bad.

I found a paritally blown fuse. When the fuse blew metal pieces ended up partially making contact. After replacing the fuse everything worked great.
