Question about 2009 Pontiac G6
The interior lights are controlled by 2 fuses (accessory fuses , 1 in the kick panel under the dash and the other in the fuse box under the hood) , by door and trunk switches (located in the corner of the doors, (it depressed when a door is open) as well as a switch in the hood. try the following steps in the proceeding order
1.) try changing the hood light switch to off , there should be 3 settings (door, off, on) switch it to off , if its set to on it will remain on.
If the above fails chances are one of the door switch is shorting,
2.) open each door , 1 at a time , locate the switch the door pushes, Its on the car body and when the door closes it pushes in the switch. press each switch 1 at a time to find the shorting switch. once found , check that the door is closing properly and adjust toe lock by turning the screws and sliding it in until it works properly.
If the above fails chances are you have an electrical harness failure.
3.) pop the hood, locate the fuse box, locate the acc / accessory fues by using the diagram on the fuse box cover. remove the fuse. This will turn off all the accessory electrical so it wont drain your battery. Get the vehicle to a garage as soon as you could. Alternatively you can remove the fuse from the kickpanel under the dash. (here is a diagram on the cover).
In the unlikely case you cant locate the fuse, remove the negative battery pole, This will turn off all car electrical so your battery wont drain giving you enough time to get to a garage. Chances are it involves harness rewiring / relay failure which will need tracing and replacing and should always be done by a professional. Your vehicle is controlled by a computer and if the wires are shorted this can damage the cars cpu which will cost a lot to repair. So follow the above advice and if steps 1 and 2 fail will 3 is the best choice for you as well as a local garage.
