I have a question of my own, when you try to start the vehicle with the door open does the roof light dim or go out? If it does it isn't a starter but most likely what Papa answered a "live short" which is a power wire that is always live, that is being shorted constantly (like the power wire for your clock, and computer memory) I reccomend you follow Papas advice
