Interior lights on a 1994 Dodge Caravan will not turn off when engine is turned off which drains the battery. Can they be disconnected and how?


You can remove the fuse for the interior lights after you turn van off for a temporary fix.Thinkin there should be some kind of sensor/timer thats gone out,not allowing the lights to shut off after van is shut down and doors closed

Peugeot boxer van 2007 changed interior light bulb blew fuse, renewed fuse, lights worked, but emissions lights on dash board came on and won't go out. Help


Try reading the OBDII with a code reader and see what it is then erase codes and see if it stays off ,could be more than one circuit on this fuse so the fuse blowing has thrown the light on for whatever reason ,Also try disconnecting the battery just out of interest for a few minutes and reconnect it might go out if your lucky

Not sure, but I've heard a bad hazard switch can cause strange problems.
Also, if your truck has a body control module that controls interior and lights, that may be your problem, too. Good luck.

YOU MAY HAVE A BAD DOOR AJAR SWITCH. HOWEVER, YO HAVE A TIMER THAT SHUTS OFF THE INTERIOR LIGHTS AFTER 300 MINUTES. IT'S CALLED A BATTERY SAVER FEATURE. TEST IT OUT.

THE EXTENDED CRANK MAY BE A CHECK VALVE IN THE FUEL PUMP IN THE TANK, ALLOWING PRESSURE TO DROP WHEN YOU TURN THE ENGINE OFF.
OR A BAD FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR ON THE ENGIEN FUEL RAIL.

TRY THIS TEST, TURN KEY TO "ON" POSITION, WAIT 5 SECONDS, SHUT OFF KEY FOR 30 SECONDS. TURN KEY ON, WAIT 5 SECONDS, THEN START ENGINE. IF IT STARTS RIGHT UP, YOU ARE LOSING FUEL PRESSURE WITH ENGINE OFF.

THIS BUILDS UP PRESSURE IF IT DROPPED DURING SHUT DOWN.
REPORT TEST RESULTS.

PLEAE RATE, THANKS

Battery drain


When the car is shut off, there should be a very small load on the battery to keep the clock running, the security system on etc. But the amount of current is really small. If the battery is dying overnight, something is loading it;
Charge the battery right up.
Have ignition off, doors and trunk closed, no interior /exterior lights on and leave the driver door window open.
Take a fairly large automotive bulb like an 1157 or even a headlamp.
Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery.
Connect one wire to the negative terminal of the battery from the light, and the second light terminal to the negative battery cable you diconnected; connecting the light in series. Don't put the negative battery terminal on the battery.

The bulb should not light if all your ignition system is off and you have no lights turned on.

Turn on the lights or blow the horn by poking through the open window without opening the door, the test light should light and the horn sound.

If the light lights without anything being on, then you have something constantly draining the battery.

Go to the fuse panel and remove and re-install each fuse one at a time from every circuit. You may have to close the interior light door switch by pushing it with something while you are getting to the fuses so the circuit is in the off state all the time. Everything has to remain off.

When the light goes off when you removed a fuse, that is the circuit which is loading the battery. Check the fuse description for the circuit affected.

My guess is a trunk light that stays on even when the trunk is shut. If it is a lighting system fuse causing the problem, remove the trunk bulb and replace the fuse. If the light goes off, the trunk switch is defective keeping the light on all the time.

You can also place a battery charger on the battery (connect the negative back on the battery) and go and check the car in the dark. Is there a light on like a floor lighting in the interior? Do you have a light on under the hood that can't be seen during the day?

Always make sure you have a good charged battery, and that the terminals are really clean before you start analyzing the problem.
Does the alternator charge the battery? Check by measuring the volatge across the battery engine off, no charger connected; should be 12V or close.
Start the car, the meter should read 14V or so, but more than without engine running. If not, the alternator/charging circuit may be the real problem.

Which fuse controls the interior lights


First, make sure the interior light switch has not been left on, either at the light itself (press to turn on, press to turn off) or at the headlight switch.

And don't forget the dimming feature in Chrysler products, where the lights don't just go off, but delay after closing the doors.

The fuse would be the interior lights fuse, most likely at the drivers end of the dashboard.
