Hi,


You have a stuck door ajar switch. You won't be able to tell which one it is, but usually it's the driver's since that one gets the most wear. You may be able to unstick it yourself. Get some penetrating oil, go around to each door, open it, spray penetrating oil directly into the door latch until it just about runs out the bottom of the door. Then rapidly open and close the door several times. That may fix your problem. If not, then you will need a new door latch switch on one of the doors, but without special equipment, you will not be able to determine which door it is.

This is caused by the door switch plunger sticking due to dirt, other elements or rust. Check the following:
1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:

Cleaning spray - clear the sludge out of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc

Air, canned or even better, from a compressor

Spray lubricant - a dry lube (best), silicone spray, WD-40 or similar


2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism
This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical & plunger mechanism inside the door switch.
If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.

My interior lights stay on even with the doors closed and the dome override button won't turn them off either


This is a short on the dome lamp assembly. It is possible that the ground wire from the dome to switches is short.
remove assembly and check.

Dome light will not turn on when the doors open


It greatly depends on what type of vehicle it is (you didn't indicate make or model). However quite a lot of vehicles have an actual over ride switch or interior light kill switch. Some are in the overhead console (has a light with a slash thru it). Others are in the rotary switch for the dome lights, if turned on way to the max it shuts off the lights. Others are simply a push button on the dash near the headlight switch, in the center console or even on the steering wheel lever. If it doesn't have an over ride switch then its most likely a blown fuse, which will need further diagnosis.

Dome light on my 1998 gmc suburban wont shut off


Maybe your door switch button has broken off. Sometimes I bump my dash light dimmer wheel (which also turns on my dome light) and it stays on in my 93 Chevy pickup

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?
