Question about 1997 Buick Skylark

Open Question

I have a 97 Buick Skylark and the dome light wont turn off. It also makes a beeping noise as if the keys were left in it or the lights were left on. Can you tell me what might be causing this problem?

    are all the doors closed properly ? it could be a sensor to one of the doors too. usually the driver side door. to check this, you're gonna have to disconnect the sensor and see if it solves the problem and repeat that at each door until you find the one that is defective. you can either replace the sensor or leave it disconnected, your chopice

SOURCE: would 02 sensor cause excessive carbon deposits

Pretty good guess on the 02 sensor; this feeds back info to the computer to either enrich or lean out the fuel-air mixture. I don't think it will pass emissions testing if you suffer from those in your state but it has probably already eaten your catalytic convertor.
You could check this by picking a hill and having a friend trail you and sniff the air when you are pulling the grade and punching the gas; if the cat is still alive, your friend will be greeted by that rotten egg smell; otherwise he'll just see black smoke from your unburned fuel.

I own a 1997 buick skylark and the dome light stays on

Check 3 things;
  1. The Switch on the Dome Light itself
  2. The Light Dimmer Switch on the Dash
  3. The Door plunger switches
Any of these can make the light stay on.

How do I turn the inside ligts off in my 1992 buick skylark (dome light)

Take a close look at the picture below.

This is the dimmer switch.
It's also control on / off function.
In addition to this switch on the dashboard there are pin switch on each door.
Check and make sure all the pin switches are OK.

A damage pin switch will keep the dome light on.
If this is the case then remove the dome light bulb unit you has time to to repair the damage pin switch.

1998 buick skylark engine wont turn when you turn key power good

There should be a click sound from the engine to know that you have the starter relay going. If there is none check that out if it is working or if the wires are connected properly. If there is check out the starter motor if it is connected properly or if it is working at all. Check also the ground wires if they are connected properly.
