    The interior lights, battery light, radio all stay on once the truck is turned off. Sometimes it will turn off, most of the time they wont.

    I have replaced the light switch, the ignition switch and battery, with no luck.

    I have a western wide-out on this truck and have heard rumors that there is a problem with daytime running light connections but don't know if this is true or not.

    Might be the body control module. If you disconnect the positive terminal on the battery and they reconnect it, do the lights come back on?

    What if the lights stay off once the battery has been disconnected?

    if you have access to a tech II scan tool you can manually cycle the body control module, this will tell you if its bad before you buy a new one.

    I had a problem with my 07 3500 doing weird electrical ghost stuff, it turned out to be the air bag module under the drivers seat. There was a recall to pull the insulation away from it do to it absorbing moisture and ruining the module. Which is what happened to mine...[​IMG]

    This does shut the battery light off, but not the radio and the cluster lights!

    The tumbler not the ignition switch. Make sure it's off before you get out of the trk.
    Could be the drivers door switch as well.

    if the hinge bushings and/or pins are worn out and the door is sagging it might not be closing the door hard enough? something else to check, does opening closing the door change it? if no, try other side too. but like others said, scanning the BCM (which controls all that stuff) will help the most.
