When the side door and passenger door are closed the small light inside comes on


Most cars have an interior light switch that works in conjunction with the dash panel light dimmer. When in it's extreme position, it turns on the interior light. Another possibility is a faulty door switch. I hope this helps you. Let me know.

The open door light stays on wen all doors r closed


Thats because your door is out of line and when closing it,its probably not closing on the switch that should be on the inside of the pillar post were the door actually shuts on..Get the door fixed or lined up properly so it closes flush and will certainly then close on the switch that triggers the open door light :-)

2003 Ford Excursion interior lights stay on after truck is turned off for 20 to 30 minutes, and door ajar light is always onbut all doors are closed.


One of the door switches is not showing an open contact. Which sugnals the computer that a door is ajar. Try blowunyg comoressed air into every door sqitch including the rear hatch. Afterwards, spray each switch with WD-40. Good Luck.
A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. 2003-ford-excursion-interior-lights-stay-gul110xrrkztwfkelv0nmxtt-3-0.jpg

Interior lights dome and inside side door lights will not turn off


there is a little thing inside on the driver side dashboard, that everytime you close the door it presses this button down, thus turning the lights off when the door is closed. this has probably come loose and fallen inside the dash..

Power side power on 2000 sienna van does not work


Sounds like the switch in the door, that tells the car the door is closed, is not working or broken. It may be inside the door or on the door frame. It looks like a button or a slide button that when the door closes, it's supposed to close on this button and shut off the interior lights and turn off the dash light. The doors probably won't lock because it thinks the door is open with the keys in the ignition. Electrical systems are never cheap to fix and they can cost a lot of time just to figure out exactly what's wrong and where. I hope this helps.

Sliding door switch?


Do you know anything about automotive electronics ?
All courtesy lamps are controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM).
The four contacts are not switches , the part you want to replace is the door ajar switch . The door ajar switch is inside the door part of the lock actuator . Those contacts just allow circuit continuity when the door is closed , when you open the door continuity is broken or open . The GEM now know the door is open an will now turn on the dome lights . The door ajar switches stick , try spraying WD-40 into the door latch ,open an closing the latch . If this doesn't fix the problem you will need to take the inside door trim panel off and replace the ajar switch .
