    I have the same problem, but it is intermittent. When I first use the car in the early morning everything works, but normally when I get to work(30 minutes) later,the domelight,rear view mirror lights, and power mirrors stop working.It seems to work when cool, butnot once it has been warmed up.I did replace the ignition switch, but this did not fix.

I have a 1997 Dodge Stratus and my power locks, power mirrors, radio and dome light all won't work. All of the fuses are fine. I have no idea where to start.


Without wire colors and schematics. It is hard to start anywhere. You need them. You need an OHM/VOLT meter also. Alldata and Mitchel have good wiring schematics. You get the stuff you need and post schematics, I will walk you though to fix them.

My sister has a 2000 chevy cavalier b4 the door chime and the interior dome light worked now they both dont, we replaced the bulb and fuse to no avail and I have no clue what's wrong with the chime.


the chime actually is done with the radio. the front drivers door speaker. so if the radio works and the front left speaker works. then more then likely you have a defective door switch. located in the door jam that controls the dome light

Michelle, I would recommend taking your vehicle to a local Car Stereo Shop or the dealer. It sounds like your son may have tapped into the incorrect wire in the harness when putting in the new stereo. It sounds like a problem of ignition wire is going to ground. Or the constant power wire is going to ground. Either of these issues would cause this problem.

I have 2002 dodge Dakota I sparked the battery and now the headlights taillights cargo and dome and dash lights don't work I replaced headlights switch checked fuses and replaced computer idk what to do...


Check these fuses again:
In the Power Distribution Center (in the engine compartment, left fender panel) Fuse #3 (20 Amp) Fuse #7 (40 Amp), Fuse #12 (20 Amp) and in the Junction Block (on the left end of the dash) Fuse #1 (15 Amp)
Use a test lamp and make sure that these fuses have power. All of these fuses should all have power at all times, regardless of ignition switch position. If they are all good and have power, then you probably need to replace your Central Timer Module. All of the circuits you listed are dependant on this module for operation.

The Central Timer Module is located at the left kick panel.

Central Timer Module System

The CTM is available in a BASE or a HIGHLINE configuration. The BASE and HIGHLINE CTM provide the following features:
• Battery saver functions for exterior and interior lights
• Cargo lamps chime warning
• Courtesy lamps
• Dome lamps
• Dome lamp defeat
• Door ajar switch state
• Fog lamps
• Headlamp time delay
• Intermittent wiper controls
• Low and high beam head lamps
• Optical horn
• Park lamps

In addition, the HIGHLINE CTM provides the following features:

• Central locking
• Door lock inhibit
• Driver door unlock
• Enhanced accident response
• Horn chirp
• Optical chirp
• Power door locks
• Remote keyless entry (VTSS)
• Remote radio

My warning signal does not go on when i leave my headlights on... is that a fuse?


I would check your door pins and make sure they are not sticking or rusted for some reason. If the door pins do not pop out when the door is opened your computer will not sense your door being open and will not set off the warning chimes. Do your dome lights work at this time? If they do it is not the fuse at fault for your warning chimes not coming on.

1997 aurora headlights stay on


The door chime is a victim; it is just telling you the lights are still on.
The relay responsible for the headlights probably has welded contacts and will need replacement. If you know where the fuse box is located, you can temporarily disable the headlights by pulling the fuse and the relay (which should be identified) is probably also in the box.
