If the interior lights do not come on it could be because the bulbs burned out. It can also be because the fuse blew out as well.
why would a 1995 ford f150 interior and cargo lights stay on with the doors closed ?
I believe if you turn your gauge panel dimmer switch all the way it turns on the interior lights when all the doors are closed
Press dome override button 3 or 4 times till you here a beep to put headlights and interior lights back on auto
perhaps the switch/sensor broke.
Check switches on doors for proper operation. they are usually adjustable.
locate the fuse to the interior lights and remove it. On our 98 Explorer you turn the dash light adjustment switch off, next to the headlight switch.
Have you checked your gauge panel dimmer switch ( just to the right of your headlight switch in your dash ) If that has been rotated all the way in one direction that will keep all your interior lights on with all the doors closed
In the upper console above the windshield where the two lights are located there is a rocker switch giving the option of On, Off and with Doors.
The doors will have switches that control them, the light switch also has control. Depending on the year, the pull knob turns to control dash light intensity and interior lighting. On newer models there is a dial under the switch that does the controling of these lights, on some models there is a button next to the switch that is an override button to stop the lights from going on when the doors open. Let me know if you need more help as I will try my best.
If the interior lights in a vehicle will not go off, first one should make sure all doors are closed. Then one should find the switch on the roof of the vehicle and make sure it is not turned to the on position.
Check the switches on your doors, one of those may have gone bad or broken off.
Have you inspected all doors to see in the door sensor is being depressed when door is closed?
Check all the door and light switches, they are turned on by twisting the light switch to the left, also the pin switches on the doors will activate the cabin lights.
Look in the fuse panel for a fuse which may be marked as "courtesy" or "courtesy lights". If you're unable to find it under that name, consult your owner's manual or a dealership for info on this. You can pull that fuse, and it'll keep the interior lights from coming on when the doors are opened.
Interior sliding doors are sliding doors within the interior of a house that do not lead directly to the outside of the building. They can be used to divide rooms.
I have a 2004 and there is a rocker switch on left side below radio that has 3 settings for interior lights. I believe UP is for lights on all the time and the neutral or middle setting is for lights on with door open and the Down setting is for lights off all the time which would be for having doors open for extended period of time (to save battery).
Are you referring to the interior lights staying on even when to doors are close? If so spray some WD-40 on the entire door latch including rear tailgate latch and it will resolve your problems. The problem is the latches get stuck in place.
The interior light switch on the ceiling of the car might have them turned off, or there may be some electrical short causing the problem.
Either the light switch is set to have the interior lights on or one of your doors is not closing properly (or at least the sensor thinks it isn't closed).
did you check the bulb if it is not that it could be the plunger on the door jam is just stuck or bad If so equiped, you have a switch in your overhead switch group that disables the interior lights until you enable them again.
There is a dashboard illumination switch that controls the brightness. If it is pushed up fully, the interior lights will stay on. Lower the switch slightly until the interior lights go off. When doors are closed, if the switch is lowered, the lights should go off after about 30 seconds max, maybe less. Hope this Helps, it did on mine.
There is a knob on your dashboard that you can turn to set the brightness of your dash lights and interior lights. If you have this knob turned all the way down, the interior light will not come on when you open the doors, and your dashboard lights will be dark. If this is not the solution to your problem, look for a blown fuse in your fuse box.
Check your guage light dimmer wheel ( just to the right of your headlight switch ) to see if it has been rotated all the way up - that turns on your interior lights. Also , if you are getting a door ajar warning light in your gauge cluster you could have a door ajar switch sticking inside one of your doors , liftgate , or for the liftgate glass
This isn't an answer but I have the same problem w/ my Honda civic... ik they arent the same but the light wont turn on when neither doors in the front are open... I think it's got something to do with the sensor or whatever... the one that's black and feels rubbery.
