Perhaps you turned on the interior lights when you were adjusting the headlights?

The dome light switch on the dash is on.


Put the dome light switch on door located on the headliner to the side of the light


The door jamb switch normally completes the power circuit to the dome lamp when the door is open. When the door is closed the switch opens the circuit, removing power from the dome light. If the switch is dirty, defective, stuck pushed in, or disconnected from the wiring, when the door is open the switch does not close the circuit and the dome light remains off as if the door is still closed. The headlight switch provides an "alternate path" to close the same circuit and allow power to the dome light. I had the same problem on a 1997 Chevy C1500 pickup truck.


Check Your Door Switch, When You Open The Door The Switch That Is In The Door Jam, It May Be Stuck, Or Bad. Open Your Door Press The Switch Several Times To See If The Dome Light Comes On. It Also Could Be Bad. This Will Cause This Problem Also. Good Luck


A door switch may be broken or out of adjustment or the dome light switch on the dash is turned on.


The door light switch are inside the door locks compartment. If your having problem with the dome lights staying on. Spray WD-40 on all the door locks this will fix the problem. I had the same problem on my 98 Ford Expedition XLT did the WD-40 trick about 3 years ago and still no problems.


The door ajar switch is part of the latch inside the door.


The door ajar switch is part of the latch, inside the door.


THERE IS A CHANCE IF THE DOME LIGHT IS STAYING ON IT IS NOT THE THE DOOR SWITCH, BUT WORN DOOR HINGE BUSHINGS,


You possibly have a shorted or broken switch on one of your doors. These work by earthing out when a door is openedThe manual dome light switch is on.More than likely it is the door switch. The switch is located in the door latch and the door panel must be removed to service.


By pass the door mode. The Dome light should have a 3 way switch OFF - Door open on - Constant on Move the switch to the off mode, and light should not come on when door is opened.


The switches for the dome light on each door of a 2004 Olds Alero are at the front of the door. They are on the door frame where the door meets the frame when it is closed. If the dome light is staying on, try checking the dome light control by the headlight switch, also. It may have gotten bumped when entering the vehicle.


When the dome light stays on in an slk320 one of several things could be causing it. A door switch could be bad, the manual light switch could be stuck, or the light relay could be stuck. Any of these could cause the problem.



This is a very common issue with most Ford vehicles. The main door switch is the reason for your problem. Their door latch assemblies go bad often and when this happens it is telling the car that your door is adjar, when it isn't, which is making your dome light come on.


You have a switch on the dash that can operate the dome light when the doors are shut. Perhaps the switch is in the on position.


Try opening and closing each door one at a time and wait for the dome light to go out before proceding to the next door..when u get to the door where the dome light stays on, that's the one with the bad door switch


Check to be sure the "dome light over ride" switch is not turned on.


The year, make and model would help.


The door switch can be corroded or defective. Can also be a Short in the wiring to the switch. Also on some vehicles, you can turn on the dome light with the dimmer for the instrument lights. This dimmer, if turned all the way to one side will bypass the door switch and the dome light will stay on all the time.The door switch can be corroded or defective.

The dome light switch has 3 positions. Off-On-On when the door is opened. Put it in the proper position.


Either the manual light switch is on or the door switch is damaged.



I had the same problem on my girlfriends car and it was a easy fix, the dome light switch on the door was not being pushed in all the way when the door was closed, so i put a screw in the door jamb where the button hit it and it fixed the problem, this will help push the button in more, and you should have no more problem with the dome light coming on.
