The headlight switch will either have a rotory knob that dims and brightens the instrument lights. When the instruments lights are at their brightest, just past that the dome light will come on. Back that off just a bit (you should feel it click). If it has no rotary knob then its in the pull switch that turns the headlights on. Twist that knob counter clockwise.

If that is not the issue then there may be a door jamb switch that needs adjusting.
Open a door and push on the door jamb switch (usually located near the front of the door area by the hinges). If it still does not go off then try another door until you find the one that makes it go off.
Then, with some pliers, grab the button and gently pull out. The button is inside of a sleeve and that sleeve moves in and out of the part that screws into the body. When you close the door it will push the button and sleeve in as far as it needs to go.

then if that is not it there is a wire for the dome light grounding. The interior lights have constant power and it is the ground that opens and closes to turn the light on and off.

I own a 1997 buick skylark and the dome light stays on

Check 3 things;
  1. The Switch on the Dome Light itself
  2. The Light Dimmer Switch on the Dash
  3. The Door plunger switches
Any of these can make the light stay on.

Follow the upper radiator hose to the motor. It should be inside the part the hose connects to on the motor.

How do I turn the inside ligts off in my 1992 buick skylark (dome light)

Take a close look at the picture below.

This is the dimmer switch.
It's also control on / off function.
In addition to this switch on the dashboard there are pin switch on each door.
Check and make sure all the pin switches are OK.

A damage pin switch will keep the dome light on.
If this is the case then remove the dome light bulb unit you has time to to repair the damage pin switch.

I have a 1992 Buick skylark and the turn signals do not work it's the fuse i know that but witch one?

Your best bet if the fuses are not labeled on the fuse box edges would be to review your owners manual for a diagrahm...if no manual...salvage yard or on auto manuals is your best bet...Hope this helps...(If both side turn signals are lighting up but not flashing, you need to replace the flasher unit...under the drivers side dash)

Flashers Won't work

The turn signal flasher is in a clip attached to the base of the steering column support inside the car. That would put it just about in front of your knees in the drivers seat, up under the bottom edge of the knee panel. I hope this helps you.
