Door Step Lights

On my bus there is a small blue strip light on the front top of each of both steps. I didn't know they were there until I was messing with the screws at the side and realized the cap on each step covered up a cartridge that holds 6 AA batteries. When I replaced the dead ones, there is the light I described that seems to be ON all the time. We've searched for a control for the light, but there doesn't seem to be one, and bringing in the steps isn't the answer either. How long can I expect the batteries to last? Is there a switch?
Thanx,

Generally if they are battery operated they are either all on or sun switched.

I could look for a switch hands on but alas less you can find a make/model number there is not much hope over the web.

There is a motion sensitive switch on step, could be when someone painted the steps they didn't cover it and its now painted, new batteries now operate the light.
