I can't figure out why my interior lights won't go out. They turn off with the dome overide but not with the normal delay. Killed my battery and left me in the parking lot. Any help would be great

Delay module failure, or damaged switch on one of the doors.

Where is the delay module? And any way to. Test it? Thanks

In my 94, it is part of the remote lock/unlock control box to the left of the stearing column. I don't know how to test it.

Could also be as simple as the dimmer for the dash lights, if it's pushed up to all the way bright then a little more it will click to the position that turns on the dome light.

The door switches on older vehicles were the ground for the dome circuit and if the wire were chaffed and shorted to ground anywhere after the light the dome lights stayed on,often under the drivers side sill plate from high traffic.

Not sure if the vehicles of our vintage still operate that way but it is a place to look.
