Question about 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

89 grand marquis. My interior lights won't shut off without pulling the fuse. There is also a chime as if the door is open. is it possible to get to the fuse box and wiring without pulling the entire dashboard out and which wires do i need to disconnect in order to shut off the dash lights and chime completely and still be able to reconnect the fuse in order to have radio and door locks?

It sounds like your door switch for the lights has broke or shorted, you can locate it and replace it or disconnect it.

Interior lights come on ,on 2000 murcery marque when doors are cloced and vehicle shut off


There is a door switch on each door that causes the light to go on when that door is open. Sounds like one of them has gone bad. Take the drivers door switch out first (it is the most used) and see if problem continues. if not, you found your problem.

Interior lights come on when car is not in use draining the battery- 2000 grand marquis


You possibly have a bad/ shorted door switch. On each doorpost there is a little push in switch that activates the interior lights when the door is opened - if any of these switches short, the lights go on which will drain your battery. You'll need to figure out which switch is messing up and replace that switch. When you open and close your doors, do the lights go on and off respectively? This will take some time to figure out as your car has a delay on the lights to give you time to get the key in the ignition. It is possible that one of the switches has dirty or corroded contacts ( but not very likely ) . This could be a time consuming endeavor and, short of unplugging each door switch, will continue to kill your battery unless you disconnect the battery when parking for long periods ( like at work or overnight).
Hope this helps and please rate my solution!!

Where is the door chime on a1995 mercury grand marquis


It's the same as the lights left on and the key in door open its called the generic eletronic module and it's in the dash to the right of the steering collum. Why do you want to know as all kinds of things are run by this device and it costs plenty. If it keeps chimbing and you want to stop it all kinds of things don't work with it unplugged ( interior light's cruise control, air conditioner and heat,Radio,Automatic headlights. Daytime running lights) If its saying the doors open, it is! Just because it looks closed doesn't mean that they are the most likly is the driver door and the switch is in the door latch that holds the door closed. The switches rust break fall off or get disconnected. worset problem is the wire from the switch breaks in the door hinge area and the wire will need to be found and replaced or repaired. The modules seldom fail unless submererised in water or the battery hooked up backwards or jumped off wrong battery cable removed while the engine in running but alot of this other stuff will work wrong too.
