Question
I have 2010 toyota camry and my door light icon will on my dashboard not go out. I have checked all of my doors and they are shut, its showing that my two front doors are open. Will this drain my battery? How can I fix this issue?
Thanks,
Marie

Answer
Hello, it's possible that one of the door switches is defective, it can drain the battery because the dome light also stays on. Open each door and locate the door switches, get some thick adhesive tape, like foam tape from the hardware store, put a piece of this tape on each door where it contacts the switch, close the doors and see if the light goes off, if it does remove each spacer one at a time and close the doors, the one where you removed the tape is either not making good contact with the door or needs to be replaced.
