Some cars the dome light stays on for a period after you get in or out. When you are in and insert the key and turn the ign the light goes out...

If that's not the case and it always stays on look at the light it's self and see if there is a selector on it, I don't think our years have one but won't hurt to check.

The other thing is on the headlight switch, turn the knob to the left I believe. One way brightens the cluster the other way dims it....if you turn it all the way bright it turns the dome light on.

This happened to me too. The only thing that worked for me was to remove the bulb itself so I wouldn't kill the battery

When you close the doors and hit the lock bottom on your key fab, does your horn beep once or twice? If its twice...then the car thinks that one of the doors are still open. And to fix that you have to find the "open" door and replace the bottom hinge, thats where the open close switch is.

Re: Dome light

I had the same problem... There is a door sensor, if you take WD 40 and spray where the door closes it will clear your problem.

Hope this helps.
