As you will see from this schematic
all the door switches and inputs to the BCM at connector C1 pin d12
if you have an open between this and anywhere on circuit 328 the purple wire, the BCM will never know that a door is open

Ny dome lights will not go off. have to pull the fuse.

Try adjusting your dimmer switch. If your dimmer switch is turned to high, it will turn on your interior lights on. You'll find your dimmer switch on the same panel where you head light switch is located, easy to accidentally moved it all the way to turn on your interior lights on.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck. Keep me posted, if it's not your dimmer switch. The it's going to be one of your door pins are bad and shorted, causing your interior lights to stay on.

2000 jeep grand cherokee interior lights won't turn on...

Check your owners manual for your fuse panel, it will show you the location of the fuse panel, as well as the fuse location for the interior lamps. If the fuses seem ok, check your door switches, located near your door hinges on each door, they should be spring loaded, and mov in and out freely. It is very likely some dirt,or rust has locked one of the in the closed position, however if all the switches are funtioning properly, Check the interior dimmer switch, this controls your dash light brightness, as well as your interior lights. If you cant control the dash light brightness this is likely the culprit.

Cant get my interior lights to come on when i open the door.

My 02 did the same thing, i don't know if you tried this, but turn the interior lights on with the dimmer switch, then back off. Then lock the car with the remote and hopefully when you unlock it the lights will start coming on.

Interior lights won't come on

Hi! Further to my collegues advice I would be looking at the interior light switch on the light itself. There should be three positions, 1 lights on permanently, 2 lights on door open and finally 3 lights off completly.
Also make sure the driver and passenger door switches located round the perimeter are all clean and not corroded or stuck in.
There you are another problem Fix~Ya'd.
Please remember to press blue button as I do this to help! not for money!

When opening front passenger door the interior lights don't come on

There is a switch in the door jamb that is a grounded switch if it is stuck than the lights will not turn on. If it is stuck shut I should say. This switch looks like a button not a regular switch. The button is spring loaded. Check that first. Also is it only with the rt frt door? or do other doors cause the same problem?
