Ford has a problem with their door latch assys. Seems if you lubricate the latch( on the door) periodically it resolves the problem. You may want to look into a stuct relay in your under the dash fuse box, if stuck it will keep those lighgts on, just did it and it corrected the problem---------new relay $ 15.48 at advanced auto parts store --just pull it out and plug in the new one----that's it Bud

Where is the relay located that controls the tail lights and interior lights on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage?

The relay that controls the taillights and interior lights on a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage is in the driver's side fuse box. It is to the left of the steering wheel in the dash.

Check the brake lights before replacing a fuse that might not need replacing.

Why does the Dome lights flash on and of in a Lincoln Navigator?

Do you mean that the lights inside go on and off as you drive? If so, the problem might be the door switches. They control the interior lights and sometimes get gummed up. Spray WD40 in the door latches and open/close the doors a few times. This usually fixes the problem. Good Luck!

What is it when the tail lights stay on and interior lights stay on and make clicking sound on 94 stealth?

The engine is clicking with all of the interior lights on? Dead battery... and for future reference... if there is no clicking= really dead battery and it might not recharge. In that case check the alternator, if the alternator is still good, just buy a new battery. If the battery continues to fail to recharge get a new alternator.

How do you fix the hud display gauge lights ac and gear chaange lights to come back on?

first turn on your headlights. now look on your dashboard for a little lightbulb with a knob next to it (it's your dimmer). twist it & all your interior lights should go bright & dim. if that didn't work then check your fuses (interior lights, cigarette lighter,panel lights)if they're good or not. cuz sometimes on certain cars they're connected 2gether. if the fuses r still good then u might have 2 check all the bulbs indavidually. gauge,shifter panel (& that will take a good while,cuz you'll have to take it all apart to check it). try this & hopefully you might find the problem. good luck!
