The door light is controled by a switch that is mounted inside the body of the shredder and is operated by a bayonet type of prong that is attached to the door itself. The most likely causes are: the bayonet attached to the door has come off and the switch never is closed. The other possible is that the switch which is adjustable in most units has gone out of adjustment. If you look at the door and follow the bayonet's path, you will see a slit in the front of the unit the the bayonet fits into and if you look under the slit the screws that adjust the switch, one of which is in a slotted opening. Loosen the screw and pull the screw toward the front of the machine and that shouls cause the switch to be activated when the door is closed. The other possibility is that the switch is bad or the circuit board that the switch connects with is bad, and that's going to take the services of a qualified technician, and that means money. However, the simplest is ususally the switch. Let me know if this helps. Aloha, Bill Monroe

How do I find out which fuse is for my dash board lights when I dont have my manual?

The door ajar light doens't have a separate fuse. But you can probably fix the problem in 15 minutes:
  1. Make sure all doors and trunk close tightly. Lean hard against each door, starting with the driver's, because it is the most likely since it gets the most use. Watch the light. If it goes out, you're halfway there - you've located the problem door.
  2. Squirt some WD-40 into each door's switch. They may be located near the hinge, or near the latch. Press the button repeatedly and then wipe it off. That may fix the problem.
  3. Next, it could be the alignment of the door and strike plate on the jamb. Adjust the latter until the light goes out.
If that doesn't do it:
  1. Dont worry about the battery going dead from the indicator light staying on - it draws too little current. But if a dome light (or trunk light) stays on, it will drain the battery in a number of hours.
  2. You didn't say whether the dome light stayed on. If so, or if you have any other information, please post it and I'll try to help you determine the next steps.

Door light and Interior light comes on-01 PT Cruiser

Hey there, I'm the guy with the same type problem that posted above you. You can turn off the dome light by the switch on the turn signal stalk (lever). Just rotate it to the "off" position. The interior lights on the dash and console will be dim, but you will barely be able to see the speed etc. Thats what I do.
As for the dome light staying on. Sounds like your problem is in the switch itself. I would start at the one that was just adjusted. with the door open you can flip the ting switch (the latch that closes the door) with a screwdriver and it will simulate the door being closed so you can fool with it while open.
Sounds like it could use some adjustment as it's not closing completely. It's 3 torx screws. loosen them and move the switch around a bit (you can get a little play) as the front door switch is in the latch itself. Hope this helps! and of course, if somone else has ideas please feel free to send to me, as I can't find where my switch is grounding. I'm guessing the BCM but can't find where. It's sad too, because I'm starting to really hate this car. Overheating, transmission leaks, now this...

Radio in 05 Malibu Maxx LS

The reason the radio is staying on is the retained accessory power not shutting down when the driver's door is opened. You can verify this by opening the door with the key on, if the door ajar light on the instrument panel does not light up the switch in the door latch is defective. You will need to replace the door latch.
