1998 Grand Cherokee Jeep Interior lights on while driving

My interior lights and the gate lift sensor keeps flashing that its not shut. Now the interior lights come on most of the time while I'm driving. I don't have a manutal and I've located the fuse box but I'm not sure of the abbreviations. Any help is most appreciated.

Should the interior light come on when I open my lift gate on my 2007 Tahoe?


The interior light is convenient to have when opening the lift gate in the dark.

2009 caravan manual liftgate is down and latched but "gate" warning light on and interior lights stay on and will kill the battery. Where is the problem?


The lift gate activates a contact. This contact must be integrated in the frame of the lift gate. The contact does not switch.
Either it has to be adjusted (mechanical in right position) or it is defective, then you have to replace it.

2004 grand caravan some dome lights stay on rest shut off normally


Is there perhaps a problem with the dome light switch on the lift gate? Close all the doors, open only the lift gate and find the switch on the lift gate frame (usually a rubber covered "bump") and press it in. You might have a loose wire shorting against the bodywork or the door is not depressing the switch properly.

The computer keeps telling us the lift gate is open, when it's not. It also has an abs light that comes on all the time. It tells me the air sensor needs to be replaced...even after it's been...


The lift gate has a door open senser ( switch) in both latches that hold it shut. You may have to remove the door panel and manually remove and replace the faultty switch but you might get lucky by spraying bothe the latches with Blaster or other pentrating oil and repeatly closing tand opening the door what'ing the door open indicator on the dash till the switch finally opens as it's cleaned otherwise you'llneed to manually clean the switch or replace it with a new one. They have one wire and 1.4 turn into the side of the door latch. Just unplugginthem does'ntr work either as the security system won't reset if the switch is disconnected.

My lift gate says that its open when its closed and my interior lights will not turn off


there is a push button switch in the door jamb for the lift gate. look closely and you will find it. when the door is shut the button is pushed and the interior lights and open door warning go off. it is broken and you need a new one. this will be a dealer item and it snaps or screws in. when you get the new switch you may want to pay someone with mechanical aptitude to replace it.

When driving the vehicle the interior lights flash on and off the power locks flutter and the door ajar chimes.


Check the rear lift gate switch. Or it could be that one of the doors or the rear lift gate is out of adjustment and not closing tightly. Try closing all doors and lift gate then from the outside push in on the doors and see if they go in. If it is the doors , when you push on the one that is causing the problem the door ajar chime will stop .
