    interior light wont go off

    running board light would stay on along with the interior lights. got worse! now the air bag light is on and the weather controll centre will not function. heater will stay on once the truck is turned off if you do not manually turn the knob to the of position. this problem started to occur during a high period of moisture(rain)

    Every winter I have to spray my door mechinisms with PB Blaster, then the lights work fine.

    periodicaly the door ajar light stays on when all door are closed as do the interior lights and the running board lights.

    The lights simply won't shut off. We think it is the driver's door causing the problem. We don't know where the switch is.

My 1998 Ford Expedition does the same thing after every winter. All you have to do is spray WD40 or PB Blaster into the lock mechinisms. Everything should work fine.

I was thinking of the intial complaint here (Posted by jodyolds on Feb 22, 2009) that there has to be water in that switch for the light's and it sounds like that is the case reading into their complaint.
The other lighting issues have quite a few options however.
1) lubricating the metal swicth ( looks like a pin midway high on inside on frame)that is closed by closing the doors ( good policy, hit all of them)
2) checking the light switch and its rotating bezel and where it is. Many different types of Expy's (auto light feature)
3) interior dimmer light scrolling dial and its location (on/off)(next to the light switch)
4) Check for rear light switch in load area left on.

Also if the lights continue to stay on and the spray does not work there is a door jamb switch
on the inside of the door you have to take the door panel offto get to it, its to the back of the
door where you have been spraying the wd40 I had been doing the same thing on my expedition and my f150 when i replaced the switch I have not had any problems since

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

I need a diagram of the locking mechanism in my 2001 nissan sentra so that i can use a slim jim to unlock the passenger side door.


I don't have a diagram of the door but if you slip the slim Jim in over the top of the outside door handle it should catch on the latch bar. If you are doing this because the door won't open from the interior handle or the outside handle the problem most likely isn't the lock. The way that handle connects to the release it is held in place with a piece of plastic that breaks fairly easy. If that piece breaks the interior door handle won't activate the unlock function when pulled and you will have a heck of a time getting the door opened so you can get inside the panel to do the repair.

2007 Hyundai Accent the driver side door won't open from the inside. It opens from the outside so I have to roll down the window and open the door before i shut the engine off.


Either the interior door handle or the cable inside the door is broken. You'll need to remove the door panel and look to see what is damaged.

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.

The interior lights and running board lights stay


Check your DOME light switch. There are 3 positions. Completely OFF even with doors open, ON with doors shut so you can read while parked, NORMAL for the lights to come on only when the doors are open.

Your headlight switch will also turn everything ON inside when it is turned completely to one side. Just twist this switch a little towards center if this is on.
