95 XJ6 interior button lights stay on

The interior "button" lights stay on all the time and consequently
drain the battery overnight. Does anyone know what controls this
circuit?

Sounds like a diode in your light switch module may have failed. Have
you ever jump started someone or have been jumped yourself?

Module is part of the light switch assembly on the column. Remove it
and use an OHM meter to check all diodes. Diodes can be bought locally
or from NEWARK electronics.

Make sure you test the diodes with the meter both ways. One way will
appear open circuit and the other will be a near short.

Blake;

Checked the diodes and sure enough, one was bad. Replaced it and now
works fine.

Thanks for the good advice.

Thanks,
