Does the light turn off when you push the light switch in by hand? If so then the switch is good, it just is not getting pushed closed enough by the door. If it does not then you need to buy a new switch.

2000 chevy 2500 (new style) parking lights wont shut off


The parking lights staying on and the left turn signal not working may not be related, the turn signal is probably a burned out bulb, turn on the left signal and see if all the bulbs light up if not replace the burnt one, if they all light, the turn signal flasher may be at fault ( it can work with one side and not the other), as far as the parking lights staying on, check the door "pin" switch that controls the interior lights (are the interior lights staying on too?), since the chimes are staying on even with the keys on , I would suspect the door pin switch, probably the drivers side. I believe there may be a timer on the parking lights that turn them off after several seconds after the door is closed, this may be at fault if not the pin switch. newer cars and trucks also leave the reverse lights on for a while after the door is closed.

Dryer light stays on when door is shut nd wont run


check the door switch,i don't work on lg but on any other dryer if the wsitch is broke the dryer won't start and if the light is on the switch shuts off the light and dryer will start.if you send the model number i can look up the switch for you.open the door and look around the frame where the door closes into,there should be a push button switch or a little paddle that the door hits,when you push in on the switch it should make a clicking sound or i've seen the paddle broke off.hope this helps or if you removed any wires to the door switch you might of wired it wrong

Interior lights wont turn off. Door switchs are not stuck. I can activate all my door switchs and hear the mane switch in the rear click on and off. Where is this other swich?


your car has door switches in the door with a specific resistance. if you cannot shut off the lights with the dimmer switch your rheostat in the light switch is a culprit. some luxury models dont allow you to shut off the dome from the light switch. i would check the internal door switches first. hard to find. just follow two wires inside the door next to the door mechanism.
The switches get dirty and show a resistance to shut off the interior light.

Interior light won't turn off with ignition off keys out and all doors shut. Causes?


The door switch is gone bad or got dirty.In some cases cleaning helps,other wise it needs replacement. first try cleaning:--The door ajar and dome light switch is made in the door latch,get a wd-40 spray bottle. Open your door and spray into the door latch liberally and close and open the door about 6-7 times do this three or four times both doors if that doesn't work have it replaced either switch or switch and latch assembly


------------- you need a new door jam switch for it ,its the one that shuts the light off when the door is always shut on it,they go bad like this.---------- This will help. thanks.Helpmech.

The inside light doesn't shut off


Open one door at a time and press the door button-switch (in the door-frame, hinge side usually) to see if that switch will shut off the light. If you find one that does, either extend the button length slightly with hot glue or epoxy, or replace the switch. Make sure the light has not been turned on at the light or that the switch is bad.

The door ajar light is staying on and causing the interior light and the running board lights to stay on. There is no door open


A door switch may not be working though. Try pushing each door inward while shut. If one door then turns off the lights, either glue a small spacer to the door where the switch button strikes (to push the switch further) or replace the switch itself. Good luck!

Interior light stays on and door warning lamp


some where along the edge of the door there is a push button switch that is deactivated when the door is shut, turns light of and turns door warning lamp off. either at bottom rear of door or up by the hinges.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

Driver side door lock


The switch is finding its ground thru the interior light switch. Your problem is most likely a broken wire in side the rubber boot that goes from the door to the body near the door hindges.
