Re: Door jamb switch (interior light door switch)
Look on your door post, if there, and no signs of bolt/screw, holding it in, should just pry out. If at hinge area type pin, you'll probably have to remove kick plate near floor under dash & remove from behind it, after you remove nut on outside. Might be smart to remove battery cable, to avoid blowing fuse by touching metal, when changing.

clean and lubricate the switches in the door jamb, and spray with lubricant the door latches-worst case just remove the bulbs until you can spend some time chasing it down, and just because, make certain you don't have the interior lights switched on at the dash (it happens)
Three things run the interior light the two door jamb switches and the control from the headlamp switch One is at fault The door jamb switch is usually the problem on most Simply remove the two and see if they are stuck in the open position. You can also tell once they are unplugged if the light goes off as well with any switch you check
First check your dimmer switch to make sure that you do not have it turned all the way up where it clicks.This is how you turn on your interiors lights in many cars.Second,Make sure there is nothing jamming your doors open,even slightly, and making your interior lights stay on.Third,if none of these are the culprit,check your doors switch inside the jamb where your door swivels out.It may be broken or not operating properly.Check the wiring that is insid the jamb.Many times when and if there is a rubber cover between the jamb and the door,the wiring can break and cause a short.Which in turn grounds out and may cause your lights to stay on or not at all.Hope this helps some;)
There is a switch in the door jamb that is a grounded switch if it is stuck than the lights will not turn on. If it is stuck shut I should say. This switch looks like a button not a regular switch. The button is spring loaded. Check that first. Also is it only with the rt frt door? or do other doors cause the same problem?
