door light on dash

The door light on the dash is on after the doors are shut and the door indicator that shows the door itself goes out when the doors shut but the big red door light itself stays on. Any help?

Re: door light on dash

There is actually a door jam switch that gets depressed in to turn off those indicator light(s). It's black and shaped in a little "L" and made of plastic. See if that is moving/sliding in when the door is closed(well, you really cant with the door closed). Actually, see if it slides in and then see if the door open light turns off...

Re: door light on dash

When I push in on the little L shaped switch the door indicator light goes out but the big door light stays on. On the right side of the dash panel it shows a pic of the car and every door. That light goes out but the big square light still stays on. The seat belt light blinksas well even though they're connected.To JACKLEE.....This is online.

the "big square light" should stay on for a little bit and then fade out. try holding it for about 30 to 40 seconds
