2006 Saturn Vue interior lights come on while driving

Interior compartment lights came on while driving. Won’t shut off, even after car is parked

Probably one of the door switches needs attention. Electronic cleaner might work, and they are cheap and easy to replace.

Is it possible that you accidentally bumped the dimmer switch/interior light switch (one of my cars if I turn the dimmer switch all the way up it turns on all of the interior lights, on the other one there is a dedicated switch that controls the interior lights)

That might be an early sign that the body control module is starting to fail.

You might try disconnecting the battery and letting it sit for a couple hours then re-connecting. That would hard reset all the computers. Note that other problems can develop when disconnecting the battery.
