Depending on the year, there is a timer that is supposed to turn it off.
Should be an orange box behind the pass side dash.

I had the same problem a few months ago. I walked out from work one dark evening and my interior lights were on . Found out the timer switch was out (of course after I went through ever switch and fuse in the vert) . The timer is located under the glove box. You'll have to remove the air conditioning hose, take out your front saet so you can manuver as well. It's a small orange box, it's really inexpensive and should take about an hour or so .

Wouldn't know man, but if it can get from 'over there' to Belgium in 4 days with UPS I'm sure it wouldn't take to long for a lil piece of plastic to get to you (never had any probs with large shipments from either Ecklers or Zip so far)
pretty expensive dho :s

Deltona is about 20 minutes southwest of Daytona , but if you blink you'll miss it....we've got one stop sign and it says "Whoa" .

I gotta ask. You don't have the light switch turned all the way to the left, do you?
