Question Help! When I open the door, lights on rear view mirror stay on?

I own a 2003 Mustang Cobra convertible.

I have a question. My wife had my car cleaned, and now when I open the door, the interior lights on the rear view mirror stay on. Even pressing the on/off buttons does not turn them off. I think they may be on some type of timer because they eventually turn off (after a long time). Is anyone aware of this? How do I reset the timer?

Welcome to AFM. Is the door switch damaged?

Default I don't think so

It did not look to be damaged. How would I check that anyway?
Also, the lights eventually go off. It is longer than 30 minutes, but they do go off, which is why I thought there might be a timer. It just makes it difficult to drive after dark with those interior lights on.

You could try pulling the battery cable for 30 mins and see it that resets to factory defaults.

Mine did the same thing, the reason it is eventually turning off is because we have a battery saver feature that turns off lights and stuff that is left on (not the headlights). Sounds like the door switch is sticking might have gotten some dirt washed down on it when the car was being detailed. The door switch is located inside the door (at least mine was) on top of the latch not hard to change. I my case when I took the switch out to replace it the part store had given me the wrong switch and it was late so I sprayed some WD on it and freed it up, have not had a problem with it since.


EDIT: does it do it on both doors?
