Dome And Dash Lites Stay On...
 
hi,

my friend has a buick riviera (not sure of the yr). when you close the doors the dome and dash lights stay on. when the car is running, the lights work normally. could this be a problem in the ignition switch? light switch on the dash? bad ground? anybody ever had, or heard of a problem like this???...bob:wink:

Not knowing the actual year, it may be as simple as a bad dash dimmer or headlight switch. Or a short somewhere that's bypassed the switch.

Many cars have timers that leave the dome lights on for a minute or so after you exit the car for convenience. You may need a wiring diagram to figure this out
