There is a switch located on the center light fixture above the rear seat. "ON" is on all the time. "OFF" is off all the time. "AUTO" works with the keyless entry, ingnition switch and when the doors are open.

There are two jam switches located on the latch assymbly. One on top and one at the bottom. They can become dirty and not function properly causing the dome light to stay on until it "times" out. They can be removed and cleaned so they don't stick. Once I found them, it took me about an hour to completely remove the door panel, latch assymbly, and to reinstall everything back.

I have a 1997 ford tauraus station wagon..It has 30,000 miles on it..Keep having problems with dome light staying on.The little red light stays on on the dash showing a door is ajar.Has been to dealer 3...


it sounds like a door switch is sticking, spray the dome light buttons at each door one at a time. and open and close the door a few times to see if one is sticking. if they are sticking then it should solve the problem. I suppose the dealer never mentioned this because they are out to rob everyone. you can use wd-40, electrical spray etc. spray switches good then open and close the doors. if this does not work, try to pull fuse. its worth a try!

The dome light does not light, so I changed the fuse, and now the light stays on all the time. Please tell me what I can try next.


on the light switch if it is the one that pulls out turn it ccw(counterclockwise) and it should turn of the dome light, it may even have a switch next to the dome light. Hope this helps tim

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

Dome lights won't turn off


Been having a problem with the dome lights on a 99 chevy blazer. Still can't figure out what the problem is. There is a dome light overide button located under the dimmer wheel. When I push the overide button in the dome light goes off, but when I open any of the doors the dome light will not come on. When the overide button is out the dome light stays on all the time and will not turn off even though every door is closed. I checked all the pushbuttons and everything tests good. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?

Interior dome light stays on while driving


Your dome light switch in in front of the driver's seat where the headlights are. It is possible that switch is bad as it should be both a turn knob switch, and by pulling on it, it becomes a head light switch. You may have to replace it.
