Talking Inside lights will not turn off

All of my inside lights will not turn off it is like i have a door open all the time. The only way to turn them off is by unplugging the battery. All my doors close properly. Can it be a blown fuse or a ground or something that would cause my lights to stay on.

My car is a 93 bonneville se

Might be your twilight sentential.

Make sure it'* all the way off, follow your instruction manual. You'd be surprised from what I've searched it'* a common problem.

back and forth which just turned my dash lights on and off. But before today it would would turn all my inside lights on and off now they just stay on.

I don't believe the bong test Toddster put into techinfo will work on your year, but it'* worth a try.

Most likely the handle switch on the drivers door has failed. It'* a nice little switch hooked to the handle to turn on the lights when someone lifts the handle. If you remove the door panel and follow the wires from the switch you can unplug them and see if that fixes the issue. Remember the lights stay on for a few seconds after closing the door.
