Why would interior dome and courtesy lights stay on all of the time you have checked door switches and light switch?

check all pinswitches including tailgate ciruit and rear of headlight switch for melting Done the above: no results. Opening & closing the doors at random solves the problem for a while. I have removed all the lights under the dash to avoid a battery drain, done by the previous owner at 40K. On my own, I have cut into the dome light circuit so one of the switches cuts out the light when not deasired. The "door adjar" light still comes on but I can shut off the overhead light. Simetimes it works by factory specs, but not often

checked fuses, or checked for voltage to interior light socket?

There should be a switch that has three positions, one position to have the courtesy lights come on only when doors are opened, another position to turn courtesy lights off completely and another position to have courtesy lights stay on continually.

If your interior lights are dimming, either your battery or starter could be failing. You should have your car checked.

Check the pin switches at the door(s)

dome lights do not work. checked the fuse which is ok. checked the bulbs which are also ok. where is the problem

Most vehicles have the instrument panel light brightness level and the interior courtesy lights [on or off] controlled by the same switch, which usually is a "rotary" type. The on/off function of the instrument panel lights is usually "tied" in with the parking and headlight off/on push-pull switch. The reason for having this additional,manual method of control for the interior courtesy lights is to allow use of the courtesy lights WITHOUT having to open one of the doors. When the parking or headlights are on, clockwise rotation of the headlight switch knob, increases the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Just before full clockwise rotation of the knob, there is a "detent," which if passed, turns on the interior courtesy lights. Full COUNTERclockwise rotation of the knob dims the instrument panel lights to the point of extinguishment, but to my knowledge, full counterclockwise rotation DOES NOT turn on the interior courtesy lights. j3h.

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.

Check a fuse called "courtesy" or "Interior" or something like that. It depends on the auto manufacturer.

could be numerous reasons, such a bad courtesy light switch on either of the 4 doors, a grounded courtesy switch wire, or possibly an entry module fault ( when you push in the lock button, and the interior lights come on ) . Good luck

The courtesy lights solenoid (relay) of a ford galaxy 2002 is found on level 1 of the junction box underneath the drivers dashboard together with most of the fuses. If the courtesy lights are'nt working first check the fuses. There are 3 fuses controlling the interior lights, numbers 27, 53 and 55.

Should be in the main fuse block. Look for a fuse labeled "courtesy".

its the same thing that controls the brightness of lights on your dash, roll it up or down to turn off

Possible headlight switch. Try wiggling the controls to see if it stop or gets worse.

Check switches on doors for proper operation. they are usually adjustable.

The dimmer switch when turned just past high, turns on the interior lights. There are switches in the door opening that turns the lights off when the door is closed. Either one of these can cause the lights to stay on if they fail.

Usually the problem is due to a bad ground as the car is mostly fiberglass. Also check the bulbs.

Check fuse Check operation of door switches Check operation of headlight switch

Check the switches on your doors, one of those may have gone bad or broken off.

should be with the head lights as an alternate switch or in combination with headlights, move switches in different combinations to see if you can get them to turn off

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).

Mostly positive side switched but it has a couple ground side switches also such as the courtesy lights.
