if the dealership will do it ask them to print out Document ID: 1468690

it's the flow chart for your problem right from gm, 90 of the fixes are replacing the door jam switch, a few are wire shorts and only 1 is for the bcm

ding ding ding makes the dome light stay on


WWOOOAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

winner winner chicken dinner lol

call up your local dealer and make sure they have one, it's only maybe 15-25 bucks and swap it out yourself,

-just pull off end piece on your dash (only held in by clips)
-once you pull it off the only thing thats connected to the panel is the door jam switch so just unplug the corrector and take the panel completely off
-now if you look at the back side of the switch your see the tabs that hold the switch into the panel press them in and push the switch out thru the front of the panel
-push the new sensor from the front of the panel thru the back of the panel
-reconnect your switch and pop the panel back into place.

done and it only cost you 20 bucks

now if you replace the switch and nothing change then take the witch you just took out and put in into the passenger side as that one is the bad side. they are the same switch per side so it doesn't matter


anyway thats your answer
that wouldnt stop his horn from honking while setting the alarm thou

yes thats b/c the car thinks to door is still open so it shuts the radio off due to that

change out your door jam switch and the car will return to normal

Ok now last night I was sitting in a drive-thru and my dom light comes on. I'm like wtf? The bass hits and it goes off... then it hits again and comes back on.

It was fine for a while then it got wet outside and now it is acting up again. My horn still doesn't beep when I remote lock, but it did. I'm baffeled. My air-bag warning light was turning on as well.

What the hell is going on?

I really don't think it's the door switch.
