Does it have a switch on the light to choose between on/off when doors open and on off manually? If so and you can't turn it off chances are it is a problem with that switch. Other reasons could be that one of the door on/off buttons is stuck -- try pushing them in and out to see if it affects anything.
In the mean time, rather than let your battery die just unscrew the bulb, or if easier take out the fuse.

Will my new battery be damaged if my dome light will not shut off after the car has been turned off?


That question is just sort of silly

Why would you not remove the bulb
or the fuse-- until you figure out the problem?

You know the battery will be near dead in the
morning & ruined after it runs down about four times,
after you keep charging it

Dome lights turn off too soon


i believe they are controlled by the BCM so that may be why they are shutting down too soon!!
either that or maybe your battery voltage is low, and when that happens the BCM or ECM will auto shut them off to conserve the battery!!
so go get your battery tested first!!!
