ok

possible causes

cluster dimmer switch commanded on. that will keep the dome lights on

bad door switch not opening when the door is closed.

shorted wire in harness for the dome lights

light control module

if you have a scan tool, you can view the light control module and find out which door or switch is causing the issue

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
