Voltage to the coil of the courtesy lamp relay, dome, reading lamp, courtesy lamps, cargo Lamp, instrument panel (IP) compartment lamp and the underhood lamp is supplied from the Inadvertent power relay on CKT 1732. The inadvertent power relay receives voltage from the CTSY LP fuse which is hot at all times. Ground for the courtesy lamps goes through the courtesy lamp relay. Both relays are controlled by the body control module (BCM) based on inputs from door jamb switch, dome lamp switch or door handle switch. The BCM will supply a ground to the courtesy lamp relay when closing any one of the above switches to ground. Ground for the reading lamp, cargo lamp, IP compartment lamp and the underhood lamp is supplied by its own ground.

Dash light says drivers door is open when it is not open and stays on.


Possible defective door ajar switch. Usually located internal to the door lock mechanism inside the door. I have had some success spraying WD40 inside the lock assembly with the door open and then opening and closing the door several times.

2005 chevy trailblazer interior lights don't work help me troubleshoot the issue


Most times it is the light switch when none of the lights work. Can you manually turn them on? This over rides the BCM. Interior lights are controlled by the BCM. Try opening the passenger side door, see if they come on. If so, replace the drivers door latch, inside the door. If still no lights. The BCM needs scanned for codes.

Interior lights won't shut off


Some vehicles have a twist dashlight control and when it is turned to the extreme position it turns on the interior lights. Other vehicles have a separate switch for interior lights right on the dome light. Yet another type is a dome light with 3 selections that command the dome light to be on fulltime, or to be off fulltime, or the normal door opening triggering the switch.

Provided the problem is not any of the above, you could have a bad doorjam pin switch which is not separating its contacts when the door is closed. I would look at the drivers switch first as it has the most use.

Interior light delay not working


That is normal operation, as long as the door is open the door ajar switch senses that and keeps the interior light(s) on.

Inside light work when turn on but want work when door is open"


I'm fairly sure the overhead light has a switch where you can turn the door circuit off. You might want to check on that.
If the symbol on the dash does not come on when the door is opened, the problem could be the sensor in the door.

Doomlight stays on or will not turn on when door opens


You have a dome light/door ajar switch that is defective, the switch is a tiny micro switch attached to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it requires the door panel be removed.

Interior lights stay on


either the lights are turned on manually from the headlight/interior light switch, or you have a defective door switch that is telling the module that a door is open, or you have a door that is open, or your module that controls the interior lights is defective. I would start with the simple things, I would make sure all doors are closed. If they are, then check the headlight/interior switch to make sure the interior lights are in the off position, then check all of the door switches. They are simple normally closed push button switches that should be mounted on the car frame near the door hinges.
