dome light wont go off

I have a 2006 impala and the dome light wont go off while your driving it. It will then stay on for like 10-15 minutes after its parked. I pulled out the light so thats not a bother anymore. Any ideas on whats the problem? Thanks

this probably isn't your problem, but my 95 dome light would come on randomly while parked. I just lubed all the door pins, and it hasn't happend since.

i would just leave it off , dont the newer impalas have that delay in the interior lighting when you close the door and your lights stay on for a few seconds and slowly dims then shut off , that is where your problem is if not it can be a bad door switch, trying to give you some options

This happened in my 2001 LS. The dome light came on when I got in then never turned off after starting the car or even stopping then letting it sit.

I disconnected the ground connector on the battery then reconnected it and it cleared it. Haven't had the problem since.
