There is a timer that keeps the lights on for a couple of minutes so you can find your way to the garage door or wherever. If it's not on a timer then check the inside door frame(on all the door openings)to see if the little prong is broken or missing. If it's missing or broken then it (the prong) wouldn't be able to sense the door closing when it's shut. That would cause your light to stay on. Kind of like your refrigerator or washer/dryer. I had the same problem years ago with a Chrysler New Yorker. The "illumination delay relay" needed to be replaced. I did it myself for about $35. Mine was located behind the glove box which was simple to remove. Just unplug the old one and plug in the new one. You can ask someone in the know where yours would be located in your particular vehicle. Good luck. Lori
