Re: DOME AND CARGO LIGHTS
Remove the fuse from it's holder. Check across the 2 prongs with the DC volt meter. If you have power to the fuse then replace it. Now go to the dome light adn remove the buld. With your door open (to engage the light switch) place one meter lead carefully into the light socket and touch it to the spring at the bottom of the socket and touch the other lead to the side of the socket ( inside metal part. You should have voltage there. If not the your wire is open somewhere between the fuse box and the light.
If you ever have a short or open wire you should look to place where there is some sort of movement involved i.e. the wiring harness in the door hinge. or in an area that can be easily kicked or vibrated. A well secured wire seldom has a problem .
Just start from the fuse box and follow the wires through to the light. Make no assumptions find your wire.

Did you check the voltage to the bulb connectors or from the power side of the connector to a body ground? If you checked it to the bulb connectors and get .7 volts, then the ground wire is probably bad. Checked it to the body, the the power wire is bad. If you checked it to both, the the power is deffently bad.
get your owners manual out and make sure that your dome light and cargo light switches are in the proper position. there are usually 3 positions, always off, always on, and on when door open. then make sure that your bulbs are good. if you can do this then you are in the top 10% of the mechanically gifted and should consider a new career through MIT.
now if the switches are all in the proper, on when door open, position and the bulbs are good then you have a bad push button switch for the cargo door. this is in the door jamb somewhere and merely unscrews or pops out with a little sideways pry. 90 percent of the time the light switch is in the always off position so replacing the switch or bulb will get you nowhere.
Hello. the wiring harness plug that goes into the relay panel just to the left of the brake pedal may be your culprit. . If you remove the cover of the relay panel and wiggle the wires in the big connection plug, you will likely find that your interior lights will flicker. I believe Ford had a recall on these wiring harnesses so contact a Ford dealer about that.
have u check the bulbs?.... i would try to see if they ok remove em an check for power going to those locations, activate ur switches an see if you get any power may just be burned bulbs..... if the fuses seem to be OK
Both your overhead map lites and your overhead second seat lites have a switch to diable them from the door switch. It might just be that they are not enabled by the rocker type switch right beside each. The cargo area also has the same type enable/disable switch. You probably already knew that but if not I hope it works. Also maybe you might check the bulbs but I doubt that is your problem.
