I had te same problem and cleaned all door switches with WD-40 and worked them a little. The problem went away Try that before you try to change a switch.

My dome lights wont shut off unless i pull the fuse out


Check the door switch that activates and shuts off the lights during door operation. It should look like a plastic pin that you are able to push with your finger on the door jam.

Interior lights wont shut off


sounds like you have a short in 1 of your door switches one by one open doors one at a time find the pin switch and remove with a wrench 1 by one push the switch in and break contact or unplug the switch if light goes out then it's time to get a new pin or just leave it disconected and no more lights from that door
btw do if there was no one in the car with you and you can remember what door was closed last b4 this started i might be easy to find work backwards

My passenger door has no power,my security light is on constantly


Have lost power to the passenger side door. Without power system doesnt recognize door closed because of no power to door ajar switch which keeps dome light on. Security light stays on because without power to rest of systems supplied by fuse it cannot tell if doors and windows closed to engage security features. Most common is for power wire to break somewhere near where it leaves to main body and enters the door.
