Dashboard light weirdness

97 model. A couple of my dashboard Lights stay lit after shutdown - the digital speedo and the clock. Just started doing this. They will go off if I lock the door- would hate to run the battery down if I don't lock up or if my wife takes it out.

Have they always? Mine stay lit for like 3-5 minutes then shut off automatically. Same if I leave a door ajar or the trunk open.

Mine too, you can leave the hood or trunk open and the interior lights will shut themselves off after a while (5 or 15 minutes sounds familiar) - 2 hours, looked it up!.

The LED next to the interior light has started flashing, very randomly. Anyone else seen this on theirs?
