My wife has experienced this on several occasions. She has experienced all three scenarios below. First, make sure that all doors are tightly closed (sometimes the tail gate needs to be closed harder) Second, the interior lights can be turned on by using the thumb wheel next to the light switch by rotating it up and "clicking" it on. Make sure this is not locked in th on position. Third, after confirming that the second step is not the issue, try pushing the dome buttons.
