Default Interior Lights Stay on

Electrical issues--when I turn the ignition on, the interior lights go off. All well and good. But. . . when I turn the ignition off, the lights stay on, leaving me with a dead battery in the morning. Multi-function switch? Ignition switch? (the key core was replaced awhile back, but not the whole switch) IOD Fuse? 2001 w/130K.

Default Re: Interior Lights Stay on

This may be a simple fix, but it worked for me. Maybe you'll be as fortunate. I noticed my interior lights staying on--long after they should have gone off. On both occasions "someone" in the family didn't shut all the doors all the way. The rear driver's-side door especially seemed to be closed--but it wasn't. When I opened and re-shut the door, the problem ended.

Considering that you may have already sensed this scenerio, I'm wondering if the button(s) that sense that your door(s) is closed, sends a signal to the interior light relay--and if so, one or more of those switches may be acting up or kaput.
