Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.there are several things that could cause either issue and it will require some electrical testing to determine what is going on.

There are a handful of things that could be going on and it will require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is wrong. Both problems could potentially be caused by a door ajar switch related issue.

Have you checked the dimmer for the interior lights to make sure they weren't set to stay on all the time?

Do any other components stay on that should turn off with the ignition?
