Default HELP

As I was driving yesterday my interior lights came on, including my map lights I thought that it was over heating or something but I pulled over the temp was normal and everything under the hood look fine, once I got home I checked all my fuses and non was burned out, unable to find the source I disconnected the inside light fuse but it did not turned my lights out. I went to the engine compartment to the fuses and disconnected the 60amp light fuse and it disconected the interior lights.....

I let the car cool off and two hours later I found that the passenger door is the one causing the interior lights to come on.....
I shut the door properly and they went out but as I closed the driver side they came back on, from the outside I pushed the pass. side door and the lights when out....

Any sugestions on what can cause this and how to solve it......Its not fun driving at 5:30am with the inside lights coming on and off as I switch lanes....

Sounds like the door is loose. this can be adjusted by loosening and moving the post that the latch grabs on the door frame. This is usually a PITA, though, because it ususally requires a large torx wrench.

Alternatively, you could "redneck" it and throw some ductape over the switch...

Default Just a little light problem eh?

What you need to do is check the bolts on your passenger side door, if they are loose tighten them if not, check the other doors for looseness in the hinges or bolts, if this does not fix the problem you have a crossed wire or another minor electrical problem which can be fixed when found.
