Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
The BCM receives battery voltage from the CTSY/RF TRN fuse in order to supply power to the courtesy lamps. The BCM applies this voltage to the courtesy lamps through the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuits. When any door is opened, the door open switch contacts close and the BCM receives a door-open signal. If the BCM receives a door lock or unlock signal, the BCM will activate the courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit, providing battery voltage to the dome lamps and the left and right footwell courtesy lamps. The courtesy lamps can be manually activated by placing the interior lamp switch in the DOME position. For more detailed information concerning courtesy lamp operation refer to Interior Lighting Systems Description and Operation.
The BCM receives battery voltage from the INT LAMPS fuse in order to supply power to the inadvertent courtesy lamps. Inadvertent power courtesy lamp feature provides a similar function for the interior lamps as a retained accessory power feature. The BCM will energize the courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit when the BCM is in the active state (awake). When the inadvertent power courtesy lamps supply voltage circuit is energized, it supplies voltage to all the interior lights listed below. The BCM will continue to supply voltage to the interior lamps after the ignition is turned OFF so that the interior lamps may be operated.

I had a related problem in that the courtesy lights would not go off ! I replaced the courtesy light relay under the steering wheel cowl and it cured the problem ! I suspect that your problem may be the faulty relay.regards , bob whild (u.k.)

take off the cover and replace them. if you have a volt/ohm meter you can put if on the car side and make sure you have voltage and the ohm meter on the buldb should give a 1 rating if its good. it would be the cheapest and easiest to just get a new bulb and see if it works then start checking fuses if its not the bulb.

One of your door sensors (or trunk sensor) is signaling that it is open or the dimmer switch is turned all the way up, which turns on the dome and foot lamps. Try turning the dimmer switch all the way down. If this does not fix the problem you will have to get all the door sensors (and trunk sensor) tested to determine which one needs to be replaced.

You have a transaxle shift lock on your vehicle which as I'm sure you know the brakes nust be applied in order to shift out of park. The switch could be bad or if your battery is below 9 volts this will happen. Most cars have a spot where you can stick a key or a screwdriver in to bypass it. Guess what? you don't on your vehicle but there is a way to bypass it and it will work about 90 percent of the time. Apply the brake and then try to shift normally. If it won't shift (which is your problem in the first place) ease of on the pressure as far as trying to shift but don't let a go. Push the lever foward GENTLY as if you are putting it in park all the way. Keep the brake pedal pushed in at all times while you are doing this. After you gently "put it back in park" then try to change gears. No jerking motions just nice and smoothly do it. This is the only way it will work unless you get down and do electrical kind of bypassing on the switch which would be very hard for me to explain because I don't have the wire color codes and stuff to give you. I do hope this works and good luck.
