Question about 1998 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

1998 Mercury Sable. Interior lights won't go off, door open light (on instrument panel) stays on. I thought it might be fuse related, but the owner's manual says there is an 'interior light relay'. I'm stumped.

Hi! Please open the hood then look at the black box on the driver's side inline with the fender. Start pulling the fuse, check and smell if they are burnt then replace it. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I have a 2001 mercury sable wagon when i open the door the light comes on but goes off and beeps when the door is fully opened


Lamps, Courtesy The interior courtesy lamps are controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM) and are activated by the interior lamp relay. The interior lamp relay coil is grounded by the GEM when:
  • a door is opened.
  • illuminated entry is requested from remote anti-theft personality module.
The courtesy lamps will turn off if:
  • ignition switch is turned to RUN.
  • illuminated entry off request is received from remote anti-theft personality module or after 25-seconds.
  1. VISUAL INSPECTION CHART
  1. Electrical
  • Damaged lamps.
  • Damaged switches.
  • Stuck switches.
  • Open fuses.
  • Fuse junction panel fuse:
    • 22 (5A).
    • 27 (10A).
  • Fuse 12 (5A).
  • Open bulbs.
  • Loose connectors.
  • Corroded connectors.

  1. If the inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If a concern remains after the inspection, connect Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform the Data Link Diagnostics Test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the Generic Electronic Module (GEM), GO to Pinpoint Test AD . If the Data Link Diagnostic test is passed for the Generic Electronic Module (GEM), retrieve continuous DTCs and execute self test diagnostics for the GEM.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, go to the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) cannot be accessed by the NGS tester, go to Pinpoint Test AD .
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.

Fiat doblo door open light stays on and doors won't lock


this is the door open light indicator on your instrument panel correct? it thinks the door is open. do interior courtesy lights work? i.e. turn on off when opening doors? check for "normally open" circuit faults in the door switches

Power windows on 1998 mercury sable not working


Repair the passenger door such that the warning light goes out. Either adjust the switch outward or adjust the door latch inward. If you cannot get the light go o out that way, you can disable the switch by disconnecting tbe cable, taping the connector, and tucking the wire back into tbe body.

2002 Sable - Interior light stays on all the time when car is running. When the car is shut off the mirror safety light should only stay one for a short time but stay on for 15 minutes.


you have either the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is turned all the way up or a sticking door ajar switch.
Does the door ajar light in instrument cluster stay on?
If so then you can shoot some WD-40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close them firmly a few times and this will usually unstick them.

Instrument Cluster lights do not go on, emergency lights steady- Sable 2002


Has anyone figured this problem out? Our 2002 Sable just started this as well...instrument cluster lights out, turn/hazard lights on when the headlight switch is turned on. This has the auto on/off switch with fog lights. This is happening in the auto and manual on mode. Any solutions would be appreciated.<br />
