Interior dome light and out side lighted mirrors will not automatic shut off. How do I fix it? Do you have a wiring diagram that shows how this works and where should I check?

Normally this issue is due to a door ajar switch is telling the GEM control module that the door is still open and it keeps these lights on.

You should have an indicator in the cluster that shows if a door is open. Do you have any of these on?

If so we need to find out which door switch failed by simply opening the doors and manually pressing each switch one at a time.

If the door switches are ok then more then likely this is a GEM issue. However, the more likely issue is a door switch.

To confirm an issue with the GEM, we need to check the interior lamp relay and make sure it is ok and if it is, the GEM is commanding these lights to stay on.
