I had a similar problem with my 95 ranger and had to resort to pulling the fuse to turn the dome light off... Make sure that you lubricate the latching mechanism on both doors. A part of the latching mechanism on my driver side door was sticking, so even though I had my door shut tight and locked, the latching mechanism would trigger the doom light into thinking the door was open, even though it was shut. Spray WD40 in both door latches solved my problem just soak it

If the door is ajar and light stays on, spray some WD40 into the latch. The door switch is probably stuck. Spray all doors then open and close a few times.

On my 94 ranger its on the break pedal (towards the top) its pretty easy to replace I have changed 3 times in 12 years

Blast the switch with some wd40 and push it in and out a bunch of times, this usually works on fords when the light wont come on but its worth a shot. If no luck you will have to replace the switch.

If your check engine light comes on and STAYS ON, a malfunction has occurred that is effecting the emission control system If the light comes on and then goes off , occasionally , the malfunction has corrected itself If the light flashes on and off at 1 second intervals , a spark plug misfire has been detected

It could be the turn signal switch.

The oil light in a Jeep Liberty can be reset. To reset the light turn the ignition switch on or off without starting the engine. Next depress the acceleration pedal at least three times and then switch the ignition switch in a locked position.

Your domelight has a 3 position switch on it. Always off, always on, and on when the door is open. Check this first with the doors closed. If it stays on in every position, this is a problem with the switch, or a short in your wiring. Each door has a button that is depressed when the door is closed. Go to each door one at a time and depress the switch several times to see if the light will go out. The most common problem is the mounting for the switch is loose and it won't allow the switch to go in all the way. If you still have a problem you will need to disconnect each switch until you find the short or find the connector under the dash and troubleshoot it.

Probably a sticking door switch, give it some wd40. The switch should be where the door hinges.

I have had the same problem since it was almost new, the dealer said it is the switch in the doors that sticks. I never had it fixed since I would have to leave it there. It's not readily accessible, you have to take the door panel off. All I did was take the bulbs out of the overhead light, the "door ajar" light still will shine, but rather than have a dealer fix it, I can do without the dome light---buy a flashlight, it's cheaper! just spray light oil in your doorlatch. that worked for me have to do it about once a year The dome light switch is located inside the door, adjacent to the door latching mechanism at the rear of the door. A common problem with those is that the dome light stays on. This is caused by the switch sticking, and can be remedied by a good spray of WD-40 in the door latch area. Open and close the door a few times and it will usually free itself up.

The answer depends on where in the world, in what sort of room or environment.

In my 97 ranger I just take out the #25 fuse. The second you take out the fuse it should shut off and conserve your battery for now, otherwise its something in your doorhandles where the lock hits inside of your door, something isn't shutting all the way. Also , check to see if your gauge lighting dimmer wheel , just to the right of your headlight switch , has been rotated all the way up - that turns on your courtesy light A common problem is the door switch "sticking" which keeps the dome light on...spray some wd40 or electronics cleaner in the latch of the door(s) (the switch is integral with the latch) and open/close a few times.

You wire a security light like any other light. The sensor is generally part of the light and provides an "auxiliary" switch to detect movement and switch on the light, usually only after dark.The regular light switch for the security light should be left "on" at all times and labeled or enclosed to prevent being accidentally turned off. The sensor will not work, and the light will not go on, if the regular light switch it not on.Many modern units allow you to "lock" the motion sensor on by using the regular light switch to turn off the circuit and quickly turn it on again. This makes the light stay on until morning, when the photocell will turn it off and reset the lock, even without any motion detected.

99 times out of 100 the switch on the dash has failed, replace it first.

Lampshade. Lower wattage bulbs. Shorter 'on' times. And the off switch.

Most brake light switches ratchet into position and self-adjust. To reset the adjustment, press the brake pedal part way down & pull the switch out toward the pedal until it clicks several times.

The brake light fuse could be open,in that case you may have a short some where. The brake light switch or wiring could be defective. Some times when an autostart is wired in to the brake light switch the wire is weakened and breaks. The brake light switch operates a small solenoid which disengages a latch to allow the shift lever to be moved. Hope this helps
