2005 Astro Dome light will not cut off.

Postby EHustle [OP] » March 1st 2012, 12:23am

Hello Astro oowners..I need your help ..Having a issue with a 2005 Astro Cargo Van where the interior over head lights will not cut off ,doors open or closed ,when you push the overide button you can hear the relay under the panel click and have checked all the door pin switches , the roll type of panel adjust is not in the rolled up position,also disconnected the alarm( and the wires) that were connecting to the doors thinking there has to be anothe module between the override button relay and the light it self .Even looking for a wiring schematic of the interior light system..HELP

Sounds like a ground polarity wire in front of a door switch has shorted to the frame, which would cause the light to be on all the time.

I believe the RKE module is responsible for controlling the dome lights, that's where the relay you're hearing is located.

You should find the RKE module to the left of the stereo, mounted directly to the firewall. It's a small black box with a single harness connected to it.

Good luck, hope this helps.
