Q: Interior light won't turn off

asked by on February 12, 2016

A light won't turn off inside the car.

If one of the lights inside the vehicle is not turning off, then there is likely a short in the wiring or switch for that light. As wiring problems can sometimes be hard to diagnose or detect, I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the vehicle’s electrical system in order to determine the exact nature of the problem.
