If you are asking this because your dome light stays on, it is a VERY common problem on the Rangers. if you take it to the dealer, they will replace the door switch inside the door and it will fix the problem for 6 months or so. The way i fix it (i do this every 4 months or so) is to spray Brake Parts Cleaner on the lock mechanism in the door (where the latch is inside the door). wipe off anything that gets on your paint as it will eat the paint eventually. let it dry, then spray silicone spray on it and open and shut the door a few times, and you should be in business. for a very short term fix, pull the fuse for it (but you will lose other things too). 10-09-2006 - Friend Owl 1995 Ranger - The electronics of the timer control is in the computer module. This can also be a symptom of a failing computer module if the wipers behave intermittently or come one without warning. The module is located just behind the Radio in the dash.

Usually under the Steering wheel there are fuses for the Radio and Dome Light. Check and make sure they aren't blown.

Why does the dome light stay on while driving a 1996 Pontiac Trans Am?

There are at least three reasons why your dome light may stay on while driving:Dome lights typically have three settings: (a) on while the doors are closed, to allow the driver to read maps, etc., (b) on while the doors are opened and off while the doors are closed, and (c) off, whether the doors are opened or closed. Check to see whether you've unintentionally left the switch on the a setting.If you've checked the a setting and if the dome light stays on, you may have a bad switch.The dimmer wheel, next to the headlight switch, may be turned up. Turn the wheel down to just below the notch.
