Make sure your dimmer for your dash lighte if not turned to the off position. check the accesory fuse it might be blown. if these dont solve the problem role the dimmer back and forth and see if the dash lights flicker if so replace dimmer...
the dome lights may be good and have power but do they have a good ground if no this is an easy fix. just run a new ground wire or if you can find the broken wire repair the wire. as for the floor and courtsey lights check and make sure the dimmer switch on the head light switch is not turned up all the way if they are not then unplug the door triggers (the little buttons your door hits to turn the inside lights on and off
Yup, grounding problem.
There is a grounding strap from the engine to the chassis. It is either loose, corroded, damaged, missing, or otherwise not making good contact with the engine or chassis. If you can't locate it, then ground has been using the "pigtail" wire coming off the negative battery side.
If you had the battery or cables services recently, then the wrong negative cable was installed. Installing a ground strap (AutoZone $8) from engine to chassis is better anyway.
There is a dome override switch located below the head lamp switch make sure it is in the off position - if it is ok - open the driver side door look on the side on the instrument panel for a little black plunger - that is the switch for the dome lamp and courtsey lamps if it is broken or not there this will cause the lights to stay on. It will have to be replaced if it is broken or missing.
If not, it sounds like a bad door switch, courtesy light switch, or shorted wiring. Open the driver's side door and locate the door switch, it is usually near the hinges somewhere. Examine the switch and too see if any parts appear broken or snapped off. Rapidly push the switch in and out a few times and see if it has any effect on the lamp. Do the same with the passenger door switch. Also try rapidly turning the courtsy light switch knob on and off.
If you don't notice anything, you can try removing the switches and testing it with a multi meter or continuity meter. Both of these tools are available at an auto parts store if you do not own one. Let me know if you need help removing and testing the switch.
