Hello,
Although I have never been in your particular Model I helped someone the other week with the same problem.
Your light switch that turns on all headlamps is it a pull type? if so try twisting it anti clockwise you should feel a small click if it is the interior light switch.(Anti clockwise off Clockwise 1 click on)
If not please don't press the unacceptable button come back to me I'll sort it somehow.
Good Luck!

in the door jams there is a switch it should be a little post sticking out about a half an inch that you can push in by hand. it's one of those switches. their should be what looks like a nut at the base put a socket on it if it has that and it will screw out.

Will pushing on the door-closed switch turn off the alarm? If it does, extend the button with something glued on to it so that the door will operate the switch. If the switch is damaged, it will need to be replaced.

2002 ford expedition interior lights are not on what fuse is it?


Courtesy Lamps - central junction box. fuse # F1.21 that goes to interior lamp relay in the instrument cluster and F.24 this fuse powers battery saver relay .
Interior Lighting The interior light system consists of the following:
  • front map lamp assembly
  • front door courtesy lamp
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • glove box lamp assembly
  • central security module
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior lamp relay
  • illuminated vanity mirrors (Navigator only)
  • reading lamp assembly
  • rear courtesy lamp
  • running board lamp
  • underhood lamp assembly
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) illuminates the interior lamps when an unlock signal is received from the remote anti-theft personality central security module. The illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
    • 25 seconds have elapsed since the illuminated entry feature was activated and the interior lamp control is not activated (door ajar or courtesy lamp switch on).
    • The GEM receives a request from the central security module (remote transmitter lock button pressed) and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    • The ignition is in the RUN or START position and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
    The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
  • You have an electronic control module and relays involved in the operation of these lights also !

    How do you get the interior lights to come on when a door is open


    Hi, viewer. The interior light is powered and controlled by the body control module or BCM. However, there is an on/off button beside the main headlight switch that overrides the interior lighting function. If this button is off, interior lights will not come on regardless of any door being closed or opened.

    If this button is on, interior lights will come on whenever a door is opened. If you close all doors, and if the driver door is the last to be closed, the interior lights will stay on for about 30 sec and then the lights goes off automatically. In case you left any door opened too long, the BCM has an internal timer that will shut off the interior lights automatically when it detects that a door is still opened and the allowable time has elapsed. The BCM is programmed this way to protect the battery circuit and functions. : )

    The interior lights in my 2000 Ford F250 will not turn off. How can I get the lights to turn off?


    Just to get the interior lights off to save your battery, you could pull the fuse. Refer to the service manual to determine the proper fuse.

    To fix the problem, i would suspect one of the door switches is faulty.

    2000 jeep grand cherokee interior lights won't turn on...


    Check your owners manual for your fuse panel, it will show you the location of the fuse panel, as well as the fuse location for the interior lamps. If the fuses seem ok, check your door switches, located near your door hinges on each door, they should be spring loaded, and mov in and out freely. It is very likely some dirt,or rust has locked one of the in the closed position, however if all the switches are funtioning properly, Check the interior dimmer switch, this controls your dash light brightness, as well as your interior lights. If you cant control the dash light brightness this is likely the culprit.

    Which fuse controls the interior lights


    First, make sure the interior light switch has not been left on, either at the light itself (press to turn on, press to turn off) or at the headlight switch.

    And don't forget the dimming feature in Chrysler products, where the lights don't just go off, but delay after closing the doors.

    The fuse would be the interior lights fuse, most likely at the drivers end of the dashboard.
