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.

Why does the dome light in a 1995 ford ranger stay on all the time?

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.
