You are in luck! This IS a common problem with a simple cure. The interior light SWITCH IS INSIDE THE DOOR NEAR THE STRIKER PLATE LATCH. The switch sticks in the on position unless lubed occasionally.
Spray WD-40 INTO THE SLOTS behind the EXTERIOR DOOR HANDLES. Just lift the handle to reach the slots and spray. . DON'T BE AFRAID TO SPRAY IT GOOD THE MORE YOU USE THE CLEANER IT WILL GET.
If dome lights and sunroof of a Mitsubishi Galant are not working, it is probably due to blown fuse. It is time to replace old ones.
do 1998 ford f450 have day time running lights
I had a similar problem with my 1999 Ford Windstar. My dome lights/door lights worked intermittently. I found a suggestion on the web to spray WD-40 into the latch on the edge of the door on the drivers side. I did, and it hasn't been a problem for over a year.
My brake lights, dome lights and dash board lights went out at the same time. I checked the fuse under the hood of the car and I can't locate the fuse box inside the car. My questions are (1) what cloud have cause for all three(3) lights to go out at the same time and (2) where inside the car is the fuse box?
If the dimmer switch for the dash lights are turned all the way to bright and then clicked one more time the interior lights will come on and stay. Try turning down your dash lights. It might also be a broken or bent door pin.
I'm not a mechanic but I would start by checking the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder in your engine compartment
Many rangers have a micro-switch built into the door latch that grounds when the door is shut. If the switches become dirty, they will cause the dome light, chime, and door ajar light to stay on. A few shots of contact cleaner should do them justice.
Why did my 1992 ford ford ranger stops woking why i am driving.
check your fuses
The dome light should stay on for about 15 seconds and then go out as a courtesy light. If it stays on all the time you probably need to check the dash and turn it off. Usually the dash light dimmer rotates tp a point that will turn it off.
Pull them out and replace them one at a time.
The door switch can be corroded or defective. Can also be a Short in the wiring to the switch. Also on some vehicles, you can turn on the dome light with the dimmer for the instrument lights. This dimmer, if turned all the way to one side will bypass the door switch and the dome light will stay on all the time.The door switch can be corroded or defective.

The dome lights have switches that can be placed in three different positions. Totally on all the time - totally off all the time - operates with doors. Are you sure the switch is set in the correct position?
I think it has to do with the fuel pump. it happen to me one time
yes takes a little time and work but can be done
The labor time for a 2000 Ford Ranger with a 4 cylinder engine is 10 hours, or roughly $900. It could be more depending on the year of your vehicle and for the 6 cylinder engine.

It sounds as if there is a problem with the rear electronics module in the Ford Windstar. This controls the front and rear lights and it is located in the back in the cubby with the jack.
front differential turns all the time
timing is computer controlled. You don't need to do any timing.
If battery is original have it load tested (6 yrs old) time to replace?
Ford Ranger parts are widely available from a number of different retailers. You might want to try breakeryard, fordpartsgiant, and go-part, all of whom should have you up and running again in no time at all.
You have a faulty headlight switch. It's too much of a load on the headlight switch to run all the lights at the same time. You should run a separate light switch for the running lights.
This can be due to a bad headlight switch. If it goes bad, most of the time you have no dash lights or headlights
