The problem with the dome light on is that one of the switches on the door may be not closing, check them with the dome light on the "door" position, with all the doors closed, and the dome light still on, push each door in from the outside as hard as you can and see if one of them will make the light go off, this is the one that needs to be adjusted tighter to make the switch break the circuit, another way is to open all the doors and the pressing each door switch one at a time to see which one is pushed in without the light going off, you will need some assistance with this this, I hope I'm not confusing you with all this but give it a try!

I have a 2010 kia forte and i left my dome light on all night and now when I go to start my car the alarm goes off. What's happening?


Use the remote to activate the alarm by double tapping the lock button, wait 3 minutes then use the remote unlock button by tapping twice to deactivate, this should reset the alarm back to normal mode

My dome lights stay on for about 15 to 20 minutes and my radio shuts off now when i turn the car off, it normally stays on when car is turned off until you open a door.


This is normal...........The dome light will give you time to collect your belongings and the radio or music of your choice will stay playing for about 15 min unless the door opens..............It is just the way cadi rolls........Hope this helps.

Aren't the door switches in the door jamb or is the dial for the dash lights turned all the way up?

I just got a 1998 PLY Voyager 3.3 o.d. trans. 1. Problem lights blink on & off on rear wiper buttons.2. head lights stay on after i turn off engine day or night.3.Doors a jar dash light stays on.4.air...


Problem #1 The blinking lights in the rear wiper rear defrost area can be reset by holding 2 buttons of the 3 on the left hand side. The top and bottom buttons. Turn the key on and hold them for about 10 sec and they should start flashing differently. Just let it do this. After they start flashing different. It will take 5 to 10 mins. Then one or more will quit flashing all together. If they don't after about 20 min reset them again it can take about 5 trys sometimes before they all go out. Also to fix the dash going out try this. This is a common problem with the voyager,caravans and Town & Countrys. What the problem is is a cold soder in the interment cluster itself. The problem area is where the plug comes from the van into the cluster. You need to take the circuit board out of the cluster and reheat the soder on the back side of the circuit board were the plug plugs into. This will fix the cold soder permanitly I think its about 16 pins you have to reheat with the soder gun. If you don't feel comfrotable doing that you can just replace the interment cluster and it will be fine but if you buy a used one make sure it was tested. This also may fix the ABS light and the airbag light. Hope this helps I have done several of them.

Flasher lights stayed flashing, no gages would work.


Try Re-Activating the Remote System to Lock, Unlock and back to Lock again several times. Does the original problem re-occur? If so there is a problem with the Remote System, and possibly with the Remote itself sticking. Try Lock and Unlock and disconnect the battery. Wait at least 5 to 30-minutes before reconnecting. The remote itself you can take apart and check to see if the depress button is sticking causing the signal to be constantly sent over and over again.

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?

WHAT YOU HAVE IS THE MAP LIGHT IS ON JUST PUSH THE LENS AND IT WILL GO OUT
IT WILL ALSO TURN OFF FROM THE "BATTERY SAVE " AFTER 20 MIN. AFTER THE KEY IS TURNED OFF.

Grand Cherokee Interior lights stay on



I don't know about the remote hand held key problem but concerning the light staying on...Try... turning off the rear dome light by pushing up on the fixture... it may have been accidently activated when loading stuff in the rear.

The rear dome light has a option feature that allows you to turn on/off interior lighting while loading cargo at night.

Good luck

Flat battery


Sounds like the timing unit which automatically turns off your dome lights after a few minutes is working backwards. Probably need a new unit.
