2003 pontiac montana's interior lights would not come on automatically when I switch engine off or open car doors. I have to turn on or off manually.
Thanks for your comment and help!

Hi XJSHEN,

The interior light are run by the BCM which sounds like has gone bad, here is a wiring diagram so you can see if the BCM is sending power out to the lights which will confirms its failure.

Thanks a lot for your instruction and help!
When use power key open the the door, the interior lights are now turn on. Once I turn on the interior light switch on the top near by lights box, the lights are all turn on but when close the door they all not turn off. So, I have to turn off the interior lights switch turn off constantly and use the lights manual operation because automatic power key or window close/open can not control it.
If I have to replace window switch? Thanks!
