Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

My information is limited on this model but I would like to try to help since your question has been open for an extended time without a response.

Does the door ajar light stay on?
Have you tried turning the lights off at the dimmer?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No door is closed. Lights are always on , until I turn the battery off in trunk. So I didn't get any answer. I didn't answer as no one contacted me. For days. I'm sure your very nice but any answer would be better than " is the door ajar". I'd be foolish to not check that. I asked if there is a light turn on, or off button. It's a 1996 rolls Royce silver spur. Hardly old as its a Rolls. It was my Moms. I don't know how it works as she's just passed. So try to figure it out, I read the manual .
And if there is a dimmer switch tell me where it is. I promise a great review . Thank you.

I can't drive car with the doors open. I read the manual. Can't you find the location of dimmer switch? If so I will give you great reviews.
Ps- no one contacted me - that's why no answer on my end. You were the only one that's contacted me. Thanks

You should have a dimmer to turn down the illumination and when all the way down it would turn off the dome lights, all the way up would turn them on constantly.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Ok! Now did you find the dimmer ? I looked everywhere and can't find it.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have a 750li- I know where the dimmer switch is. I can't find it in the Rolls.
Could it be a fuse that needs to be changed? My dad survived my Mom- he can't find it either. I'm sorry I'm a a pain in the neck. But I'm tired of jump starting the car. And turning off the trunk switch every time I go somewhere. But as your a pro I'm sure you know it's annoying to jumpstart one car with the other cars, and the cables. The interior lights are on all the time I drive it.

The interior light dimmer/dome lamp switch is part of the headlamp switch. It is a rotary switch as well a push/pull to turn the headlamps on. You should find that the dome lamps are turned on at the dimmer.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It's really not. The circle that puts on headlights and dimmer isn't connected. It doesn't pull in or out. It's stationary. Not pulled in or out.

Does it not pull to turn the headlamps on?
