SOURCE: 2004 ford explorer passenger vanity

Hello chuck, those vanity mirrors & hinges have a history of breaking on the Explorer & Mountaineer. Yours have lasted a lot longer than most---Ford issued a service bulletin on them. They supposedly have upgraded the hinge design. Most owners prefer to replace the visor. To remove the visor, remove the screws from the swivel bracket that is attached to the roof & disconnect the wire connector, to replace reverse the process. After market mirrors are available now, but they usually require some bushings to make them fit properly. The end result is not a perfect fit, loose fabric, etc.

Here is the Techinical service bulletin i was refering to.

All interior lights and trunk light will not come on.

There is a fuse for these. Fuse good and has power to it. Look at replacing the light/dimmer switch. If the fuse is good, you need to check for power at the switch plug. Could be a bad wire.. Power or ground.
