I have a 1993 sable gs and the interior lights will not shut off. To make it simple I just removed every bulb inside the car. I would love to have them work again though. The switch seems to work properly with the dash lights so I don't think that went bad. What kind of sensors or relays etc. control when they go on and off?

Are you sure the dimmer switch isn't set all the way up?

If you had a '96 or newer I'd say spray the door latches with WD-40, but that doesn't work '95 and earlier. There is a plunger on the door hinge side of the door that you could try spraying with WD-40.

I checked the switches and cleaned them all up on the two front doors. Rear doors don't have them and I have a sedan. They door open chime comes on when I open the door and have the keys in the ingnition. When I shut the door it goes off. But the lights still stay one. I disconnected to the dimmer switch to try to rule that out and still, they stay on. The switches look like a littlw white plastic clip that sticks out a little. I have no idea if its stuck or how its suppose to move. Are there any other areas? Can I go in and disconnect them one by one to see if that would take care of it? Would they keep the lights on or off if they were disconnected?

If you disconnect the switch the light should go off. It's probably not the driver's door if the key-in-ignition chime operates normally.
