Having problems with your 1997 Mercury Sable ?
97 mercury sable, overhead dome light always stays on
\015 We've made sure all the doors, trunk, and glove compartment are closed. there is no switch that makes it turn on or off. right now, we just have taken the light fuse out, and the lights still work, but it makes the dome light go out, but we are wondering how to actually fix the light and turn it off?\015
THERE IS A SWITCH, IT IS THE DOME/DOOR AJAR SWITCH INSIDE THE DOOR ON THE LATCH. U MUST DE-TRIM THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE REAR GLASS RUN CHANNEL TO REPLACE IT, ALSO ANYONE OF THE 4 SWITCHES CAN BE THE PROBLEM, FORD CAN TEST IT WITH A NEW GENERATION STAR TESTER AND ID THE PARTICULAR DOOR THAT IS CAUSING THE PROBLEM. PART IS ABOUT $25.00 EACH
This requires a very simple fix. All you have to do is spray some WD-40 on each of the plastic door latches (if you don't know which door is causing the problem) which are located at the end of each door which will be at the end of the door farthest away from the door hinges. This is where the dome on/off switches are located. The dome switches are incorporated into the door latch assembly.
