Hello,
About a month ago, i got an incredible deal on a 93 Fleetwood Superior Hearse.
50,000 miles, immaculate running condition.
But for some reason, my interior lights stay on for about 30 minutes after i open the door. Even after i close the door.
I was wondering if anyone would have any idea why this would be doing this?

Re: 1993 Fleetwood Hearse. Interior light problem. HELP!!!

I forget how long the time out is, but the most common problem for the lights not going out is a bad door switch. But being a hearse it can be almost anything.

If this was a standard car, I'd say look at the illuminated entry system timer. However, with a hearse, there's so much alteration and customization, it's difficult to say.

Would you happen to know where the door switches are located?
I can't seem to find them anywhere

Could be a broken door switch.

Look at the door jamb where the door bolts to the frame. Inspect the door switch.

When you close the door does your security light still flash on the dash?

I think from previous posts about the problem the door switch is somewhere inside the door and not a physical switch in the door frame.
