Probably in the switch itself. It`s probably cheaper just to replace it than to find a switch. There are aftermarket dome lights specific for that Ranger

I own a 2004 Ford Ranger Supercab and cannot locate a switch to turn on dome light. Is there even one for the dome light without opening the doors?

if you turn the headlight/dimmer switch all the way to the left this should turn on the dome light. ( or maybe it is all the way to the right - sorry it has been 5 years since I owned my ford ranger ) --- but it is one way or the other and you should feel a click in the switch when it engages.

My dome lights stopped coming on when the doors are open, I can not find a dome switch and both lights work individually. I have a 2008 malibu lt and can not find a dome switch anywhere, what could be the...

Try the dimmer switch that adjusts the dash/gauge lighting. It should turn an extra bit that turns on the dome light. Also, read the Owner's Manual for info on the dome switch.

Your car should still be under warranty. The dealer should fix it for free.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that

turn off the dome light.

the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.
