    How long did you wait? I think it's 15minutes before they go off if left on unintentionally.

    I'm thinking he meant the door open warning light on the dash stays on but it's dim.

    Wondering if it's grounded.

    Either a ground or a defective door switch.

    I forgot to add my compustar alarm was going nuts non stop goin off had to snipwire to horn and yank out power to main brain so the alarm could have been the problem cause i took it into stereo shop nxt day and door light is off now(gauge light no dome lights were on only overhead view of vehicle with doors opn) but it still could be a door ajar sensor goin out or ground but its fine for now i guesss... The stereo place said it was cause my alarm must have got put into a wierd mode because i must have pressed a button and my screen is cracked on my two way pager and i cant see the screen, but thx for ur guys input ill post up again if the problem ever comes bak
