Question about 1996 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Dodge Stratus. The Dome light Won't shut off. It used to turn on and off with the door open and shut. what is going on? I have to move the switch to the driver's side to shut it off. The bulb is good. It just stays on after the door is shut. It is a 1996 Dodge Stratus ES 4 banger. It is an Automatic. It has been fine all along until last night.

Check for a door switch that the wire is touching the metal door frame and leaving the light on regardless of whether the door is open or shut.

2006 dodge stratus interior light stays on


There are several things that can cause this, but the most common is a broken door switch that keeps the circuit energized.
Second most common is a broken interior light fixture.
Both of these item as are cheap plastic, and both break and melt easily.
The door switches are not often easy to change, as they are hidden behind trim parts.
You may choose to pull the fuse for the dome lights whilst you decide to fix the problem, lest the battery die, or the dome light melts.
. God bless your efforts.

My lights on my 1996 caravan won't shut off until the timer shuts them off and they turn on when any door is opened


You are talking about interior lights, right ?
As long as the on-time is under a minute or two, its normal.
The lights are supposed to go off as soon as you start the van tho.

No. my dome light won't shut off. how do I shut it off


Check the light switch on the dash and see if it is turned on for the dome light, if so turn it off and the dome light should go off. Check if the dome light it self has a on/off switch button on it. If this was not the problem, check the push button switch at each door by opening the door and holding the button in, if you have a delay light system on your car, you will have to hold the button in for awhile till it kicks the dome light off. If this did not fix the problem, remove each door switch and unplug the wire going to it, use a volt meter to check if the switch works on and off when you push the button in and out, if the switch is bad, replace it, you can buy them at a local auto parts store or dealer. If the switch was bad just leave the wire unpluged till you can replace it, this way the dome light should go out

Car alarm on a dodge stratus


Check all switches on doors (push-in button) located usually on door post, or in jamb area by hinges. Do 1 at a time with your door open & use your thumb or finger to push it in and see if interior lights go out immediately. Good chance one will be a little temperamental which will tell you which one is at fault. If there's one that you have to push in further than others before light goes out, that's more than likely the one causing the trouble.

Dome lights intermittently flash on and off in a 1996 Jeep


If it has automatic or a domelight that stays on for a while after you shut the door is on a timer relay and that is probably getting bad. As far as the door ajar message there is a switch in the door jam, look and see if you see it. Take wd40 and try to soak the switch try to get it inside the switch.If its incorporated in the door latch spray back inside the door latch real good. Open and close the door several times and see if it works then.
