Dome and running lights remain on even when engine is off
This is a problem I can't seem to get fixed. When the car is shut off, the dome and running board lights remain on, which drains the battery. has anyone else had this problem? How did you fix it?
It should be possible to shut them off manually with the light switch. If that doesn't work your switch is probably bad. Remove the fuse whenever you shut down until you can get it repaired.
I agree with Jonathan, good advice. Haynes repair manuals will tell you how to do it yourself. Napa usually has these.
There is a dial to the right of the headlight knob that dims the dash lights. If you roll it up all the way till it clicks, it will turn on the dome lights and running board lights, and they will stay on until you roll it back down past the click.
