Customer Question

My dome lights stay on while driving and don''t go off until they time out at thirty minutes after I leave the truck. All my door ajar switches work properly and the door locks also work properly.

  • Does the instrument cluster door ajar indicator work correct?
  • Is it illuminated while the courtesy lights are remaining on?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
The cluster light works properly on each door. I opened them one at a time and the cluster light came on and went off correctly. It goes out when all doors are closed.

I tried to turn the dome,cargo and red front door lights on today with the dash dimmer control, by reaching through the open window, but they didn't come on.

The door locks all work ok.

I hope this helps.    Ben

See if this helps in diagnosing why the dome light stays on.

By looking through the pinpoint test the instrument cluster seems to be the fault here. You need a scan tool to check VSM and IC trouble codes.
