I have a problem with my interior lights. Earlier today we drove around in out 2004 Durango with no problems, then tonight for whatever reason the interior lights wont turn off. The trunk light stays on no matter what I do, the lights on the ceiling also stay on. If i press the button they still stay on, they just slightly dim. Ever after 8 mins and the auto headlight shut off the interior lights stay on.
I checked the doors and they are shut, same with the trunk. I messed with the cabin dimmer to see if that was the problem and nothing.
Any help would be fantastic.

Well first off, buy a manual. Then look at the wiring schematics, be sure to have a multi-meter on hand also. As for now thats all I know since I have not ran into this before. Post what you find as you try to diagnose and maybe the more info you give, the easier it will be for myself or somebody else to reply with a hopefully close assumption on what to look at. The manual might actually have some diagnosing tips also. Good luck.

i haven't had any time the past few days, but when i can i will take it to the dealer and let yall know what was wrong. For now i unpluged the trunk light and the dome lights go off after 8 mins most of the time. I have to check and make sure, if not i have to press the button on the ones that stay on over 8 min and then they go off after 8 mins... i know its wierd.
I have a 2005 Dodge Durango and all of a sudden tonight my lights inside won't shut off. I had to unplug the trunk light and wait for a while and push the dome lights off. The lights won't turn on when the door opens either. Help Please

I took it to my dodge dealer to have them look at it. It was a recall issuie with the gauge cluster, but they did have to order the parts. It was nothing out of pocket.
My dome lights wouldn't turn on until I started the truck up, then they wouldn't shut off at all. I pulled the 15amp fuse (located at the top of the fuse box) by the left leg kick panel, this controls the dome lights and the lights for your air/heater switches and the lights for the all wheel and 4 wheel drive switch.
they orderd parts and you have the truck?? the milage is stored in the cluster if they have to order the cluster they are required to keep your truck untill the cluster come in so the mileage will be the same. It's fed law and the cluster is the only part that would have to be replaced and thats not very often. the rest is switching wires at the cluster plug and a reflash. unless the cluster is replaced then it comes with the new flash
I had the same problem with the interior lights. I took it in for the instrument cluster recall and everything works fine now. They didn't tell me until it was apart that they didn't have the new part in stock, so they gave me a loaner overnight.
Same problem with the interior lights. I had the instrument cluster (g07) done. Didn't fix it. However, they still have to do the instrument cluster capacitor. Order part. When they change this, will the lights operate normally?
