My interior lights do not go off when I turn my '84 off. They go off when I start the car again. The doors, and hatch, close tight, So there is no issue with them being slightly ajar. I finally resorted to pulling the fuse for the interior lights. Now I have no interior lights. The radio does not pick up any stations, since the motor to raise the antenna is apparently on the same circuit. Anyone able to help?

Just bumping the message to see if there is any new help available for this problem. I have checked door alignment and locks in case they were the culprit but everything looks fine on those fronts.

Romano60... welcome to the forum.

My guess with the interior lights is that they should have nothing to do with the ignition switch..
I believe they are controlled by door/hatch switches and also the headlight knob.
Have you checked to see that the headlight knob is not in the 'detent' position..?
I do not own an '84 Vette but I worked on my buddy's '84 on the weekend.

let us know..

I agree with with Graham. You might have the headlight switch turned all the way to the left. Sit in the car without it running so the interior lights on and turn the head light switch to the right and they may just go out

The lights on/in the door panel can be pushed on and off. You actually push on the translucent plastic cover. Have you tried experimenting with that/
