Hello, Eddie here and I will do all I can to help. Your speaking of the interior dome lights being on while your driving at night?

They are on in the daylight too

It's probably a door lock switch. you don't have a door ajar message or door open symbol in the instrument cluster as well by chance?

no, just checked
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 2 years ago

Alright, Can you turn it off with the switch? or is it stuck on no matter what?

I pushed the buttons on the front overhead one but nothing
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 2 years ago

Does it burn the whole time? or does it go out when you turn the key off?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It goes out after a minute or so after turning the key off
Chrysler Mechanic: Edward, Technician replied 2 years ago

Alright, This light assembly is controlled by a computer, the computer gets the inputs from the doors, and will switch on the dome lamp when it see's a door is opened. In my opinion, either the computer is getting false signal from a light switch, or the actual dome lamp assembly itself has failed. It would be a top priority in my opinion to have an advanced type scanner hooked up and monitor these switches and door switches, to make sure the computer see's all of these switch inputs and make sure that one of these isn't defective. It's either going to need a software download, or a new dome lamp assembly. If you could find another dome lamp assembly in a salvage yard for 20$ or less, I would certainly like to give that a try. And if that didn't fix it, It would have to be scanned to figure it out. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you!

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
