The most likely cause is a sticking or faulty door switch. In much older cars, there is a spring loaded switch that the door makes contact with when it closes and shuts the light off. If you have a much older car, the switch may be worn out. In most cars from 1990's on, the switch is built into the door latch (this is the latch that grabs onto the metal ring that is bolted to your cars door opening. If so, it may just be sticking. Use some electronic cleaner to clean the switch and then use a lubricant to lubricate it. Note: Don't use WD-40. WD-40 is meant to be a penetrant. It will quickly get sticky and your switch will stick again. check and see of the switch in the hinge of the any of the doors have been dislodged or the wires connected to them disconnected or broken some doors have small brass buttons that have to connect there is a screw type adjustment on them as they must make contact for the light to go out if this does not work the spring inside has collapsed and the whole button must be replaced
To the right of the headlight switch is a gauge light dimmer wheel , if that has been rotated all the way up , your courtesy lights will stay on with the doors closed. If you also have a door ajar light lit up in your gauge cluster , then you may have a sticking door ajar switch , or something isn't closed properly
If your courtesy lights are staying on with the doors closed and there is no door ajar warning light , check on your dash to the right of your headlight switch. There is a dimmer wheel switch for your guage lighting , if it has been rotated all the way up that turns on your courtesy lights when the doors are closed
Just to the right of your headlight switch on your dash , is a gauge lighting dimmer wheel switch . Check to see if that has been rotated all the way up. If it has , that turns on the courtesy lights when the doors are closed If you also get a door ajar warning light in your gauge cluster , you probably have a sticking door ajar switch . The door ajar switches are inside the doors , on the backside of the latching mechanism .
When the car is moving, the interior lights fade out, right? I just purchased a 1998 Continental and it is doing the same thing. However, my message display says "door ajar" so one of the 3 doors either is not closed or the switch inside the latch is dirty. Sometimes it's the drivers' door, but the display will show "Drivers door ajar". A couple of shots of WD40 in the door latches of all doors will correct that problem.
i know it has to do with the some type of spring that is loacted in the steering wheel under the air bag. i am having the same problem with my truck. i am just trying to figure out how do you go about changing the spring? ANSWER Sounds like you have a sticking door ajar switch - they are located inside the doors mounted on the backside of the latching mechanism .
