The dome lights on the rear mirror and ceiling lights will not turn off when you shut the car off


This is a problem caused by a sticking door ajar/courtesy light switch. The switch signal goes to the BCM (body control module) and that turns on the interior lights. Since each door has this switch you need to have the dealer use a special tool to scan the module inputs from the door switches and see which door switch is causing the lights to stay on.

JUST PUSH THE BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM OF MIRROR ON THE SIDE THAT ON, MAKES SURE ALSO THE THE DOOR SENSOR IS FUNCTIONAL ON THE SAME SIDE SINCE IT ALSO ACTS AS ENTRY LIGHT.
DOOR NEEDS TO BE CLOSED FOR THE LIGHT TO TURN OFF, IT MAY TAKE A MINUE TO DO SO.

One of your door sensors (or trunk sensor) is signaling that it is open or the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, which turns on the dome and foot lamps. Try turning the dimmer switch all the way down. If this does not fix the problem you will have to get all the door sensors (and trunk sensor) tested to determine which one needs to be replaced.

Door warning light stays on


You have a bad door lock control module.  The car is seeing that the door is open all the time.  Each door has one of these modules.  You need a Factory scan tool to properly determine which door or trunk module is bad or a computer with VAGCOM on it and the odb 2 cable.  This is simple to figure out if you have the right tools.  For someone without a scan tool try shutting each door hard and the trunk.  Do each one seperatly and watch too see if light goes out.  Sometimes you can knock the module into working again.  Then the last door you shut would have the issue module in it.

Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on


You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.

They are right at the GM dealer, u need a new module, have seen and fixed this very issue, have the dealer do a national inventory search both in Canada and the USA, if the dealer won't, call a US dealer and ask them to try and get the part for U, have done this more than once for out of production parts, always got the part from somewhere.
