The light won't go off in the door
Expert:  Edward replied 10 months ago.
Alright, I follow you, so this is a light that is on the door, and not an interior light correct?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yes it is the bottom door light, and the door light is on the dash
Expert:  Edward replied 10 months ago.
Alright on the door or the body, do you see where this switch is? I think it's on the body on 05 model, but look on the bottom of the door as well. Check this link out for pictures of it. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Door-Jamb-Switch-Standard-AW-1021-fits-00-05-Subaru-Legacy-/171929385414?fits=Make%3ASubaru%7CModel%3ALegacy&hash=item2807ca39c6:g:NYIAAOSwyvBV83df&vxp=mtr
