Dome light stuck on
 
I bought my 03 dream cruiser without sun visors and now I understand why they were removed. I stopped by the pull - a - part junkyard found only a passenger side sun visor. I plugged the electrical connector in, lit up, screwed it in then I noticed my dome light wasn't turning off anymore. So I disconnected the vanity light so I have a sin visor without a light. No big deal but why would the sun visor vanity light affect my dome light and prevent it from turning off?

This sounds like a feed back.

If you look up the wiring diagram for your PT, can like run down the issue. Chances are that there is a short or closed switch somewhere that shouldn't be. Since the dome like is time-controlled by the BCM, it still goes off until it gets a back-fed ground signal through the visor lights.

Again, this is just what I suspect. But if me, I'd pull that wiring diagram and look for a common connection and a possible place for a back feed. Based on the diagram below, I'd start by checking the center roof dome light bulb if you PT has one. If the element is shorted (or if the switch is "On" on the dome light itself), you might get what you are seeing. ;)

I would cut/ground the - to the steel body behind the plastic pillar. If the problem persists, use a diode on the +
