Interior lights

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

Interior lights come on when I enter the car, and most of the time do not go out while driving. Once I park the car and remove the key, the lights will go off like they are supposed to. how do fix this problem in an otherwise fabulous car When you get out and take the key out of the ignition, do the lights turn off immediately when you close & lock the doors, or do they take a while to turn off Yes,

all of the interior lights come on. The headlight switch has no effect on them. This Buick has the "theatre lighting", so when you take the key out of the ignition, get out and close the door, the lights remain on for 5-10 seconds and then they fade to off. I have a similar GM vehicle, and when I get out and use the remote to lock the doors, the interior lights will turn off "instantly" (when I lock the doors). Does yours to the same thing, or continue to have the fade Well, I had to go out and test that. The results were that the lighting all remained on when I used the remote. In fact they were still on when I quit timing them at over a minute. But we know it will eventually go out. It almost sounds like you have one of the door switches not working because the description says that the interior lights are supposed to go down (dim) after about 25 seconds of the doors all being closed. There is also a "feature" that is supposed to turn out the interior lights, to save the battery, if the key is removed and the lights are not turned off after about 10 minutes. But I would think there would be a warning indicator that a door is open. I am not sure if that year has such an indicator, so I will have to check. OK, I think I understand what the problem (may be). But what I don`t understand is exactly what it is that I need to do to actually fix the problem. Should I replace the door latch (on the door frame) I wouldn`t want you...
