Question about Saturn Vue
I have a 2006 Saturn VUE V6 AWD 64k miles. Tonight when I was driving I noticed that the interior lights (rear center and 2 front above the driver and passenger) were still on. After driving for 45 minutes, they were still on and I couldn't turn them off, except the rear one because it has a switch. The doors would not lock when I put it in gear. When I hit the door locks, they lock then unlock. I stopped the car and checked all of the doors and rear hatch. No indicators on the dash showed anything was open. Turned the car off and restarted... no change. With the car turned off, when I hit the door locks on the remote (factory stock), the security system turns on, but the doors don't lock. If I hit it again, they lock. The interior lights stay on. I disconnected the battery (original), then reconnected... still the same problems. Currently the battery is disconnected. As far as I know, all exterior lights, dashboard, radio, windows, AC, and other electrical work fine except the rear DC outlet does not work. That recently quit just a few weeks ago.

Those lights are commanded by a door switch. Since there is another problem with the doors (the lock doesn't work) the most probable cause is in the wiring to the doors - some wires are frayed/shorted.
To identify the problem the door trims will have to be removed, and probably the carpet also. This is a very big job, it will take a least a full day of working for a 2 men team - the seats are heavy and difficult to get out.
