You mean the courtesy lights? If so, sounds like a bad door switch somewhere.

Why do the dome lights stay on when all doors are close on a 2000 ford expition xlt?

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.

How do get the interior lights of a 1993 AStro van to turn off?

Just above the headlight switch is the dimmer control for the dash lights - roll it all the way to the right to turn the interior lights on and, of course, to the left to turn the dome out and the farther you turn it the dimmer the dash panel gets. There is also that switch on the dash next to the fog light switch which controls the dome light activation when any of the doors are open and if it is on and a door is ajar, the light won't go out. Or if one of the door switches is loose or stuck it will affect the operation of the light as well. In that case turn the door switch off.

This is from a relay under the dash that turns your dome light on. More than likely, you are missing a rubber pad in one of your doors that pushes up against the switch to turn your dome light on. The front doors have 2, one is for the headlight warning. Check all the doors and check for a loose switch also.
