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.

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.
