My interior lights do not turn off when all the doors are closed. At first i thought this was due to the broken door sensor on the drivers door, so i replaced it. But that didnt work. When you close the door, the lights turn off, but then after like 2 seconds the lights turn on really dim and flicker. I cant even turn them off using the interior light switch. Does anyone have any ideas?

wow thats weird , i would have thought it would have been the mirco switch but if they cant be turned off by the switch , have you checked your switch to make sure its not broken and stuck on the on position?

I think the problem might be due to a missing relay. I gutted my car in order to try and fix the obc and found that a relay was missing where one should be. The person i bought this car from did some messed up stuff with the wiring.
