..checked the switch in centre of ceiling, made sure all doors, trunk etc, are shut properly, adjusted the dimming dial to the left of the steering wheel. Its never happened before, and I can't figure out what prompted it tonight. I may have to disconnect the battery to ensure I don't have a dead car in the morning.

Adjust the dome light switch by moving the switch lever to a different position. If this does not work, either the dome light switch is defective or wires inside the dome light came loose and caused a short across the switch itself.
In the Ford Ranger, the light switch can be found in the door, right by the latch. You may need to use some WD-40 to get to work properly. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- zed bull
Assuming you already checked every door, dome light and trunk to be firmly closed, I would inspect each doors light switch to be working properly. They are located on the inside of the door jamb and look like small buttons. They tell the car to turn the dome lights out when the doors are all shut. If the light still does turn off, i would disconnect the neg. battery cable, and unscrew or pop out the particular light bulb until i could get more answers. Doing so will insure that light wont drain your battery while you find a solution.
three things to check, first make sure the switch to adjust the dash lights is not turned the whole way which turns on the dome light, next make sure its not a push on and off dome light that someone forgot to push off,next would be one of the door switches is not adjusted correctly,which the computer would think a door is not close and keep them on
The switch for dome lite's are located in the latch. Sometime's you can lube the hell out of it with wd-40 and it work's.If you had a scanner you can check perimeters and see the switch.But you have to make sure the door is shutting properly.
The dome light problem is likely that the crappy switches that get pushed in when the door closes don't make contact when opened. You can find them at the lower right corner of the door sill. (Driver's side door. Same relative position on the other doors.) Take a phillips screwdriver and remove them, AFTER removing the correct fuse. Spray the inside of the switches with contact cleaner. Grab the black nub of the switch and twist it while holding the switch body still.
The trunk has a weird setup. the switch contact is where the trunk latch is. When the trunk is closed, the simple spring switch is held open so the light turns off. When trunk is open, the switch closes and the bulb lights. Hope this helps.
