Often the switch on the dash that controls the brightness of the dashboard lights will also turn on the courtesy lights if you turn the brightness all the way up. Otherwise, refer to the owners manual. If you don't have an owners manual with your vehicle you can get one online or at your local dealer.
If your courtesy lights are staying on with the doors closed and there is no door ajar warning light , check on your dash to the right of your headlight switch.

To the right of the headlight switch is a gauge light dimmer wheel , if that has been rotated all the way up , your courtesy lights will stay on with the doors closed. If you also have a door ajar light lit up in your gauge cluster , then you may have a sticking door ajar switch , or something isn't closed properly
Most vehicles have the instrument panel light brightness level and the interior courtesy lights [on or off] controlled by the same switch, which usually is a "rotary" type. The on/off function of the instrument panel lights is usually "tied" in with the parking and headlight off/on push-pull switch. The reason for having this additional,manual method of control for the interior courtesy lights is to allow use of the courtesy lights WITHOUT having to open one of the doors. When the parking or headlights are on, clockwise rotation of the headlight switch knob, increases the brightness of the instrument panel lights. Just before full clockwise rotation of the knob, there is a "detent," which if passed, turns on the interior courtesy lights. Full COUNTERclockwise rotation of the knob dims the instrument panel lights to the point of extinguishment, but to my knowledge, full counterclockwise rotation DOES NOT turn on the interior courtesy lights. j3h.

Dome lights not turning off On my 1995 Ford Explorer, just to the right of the headlight switch on the dash is a vertical switch that has the word dim below it. If this switch has been turned all the way up to the top, all the courtesy lights will stay on. Just move the switch down a little bit towards the word dim and if your doors etc. are all closed your dome lights will turn off.
On your dash, just to the right of the headlight switch is a dimmer wheel switch for your dash lights. Make sure that hasn't been rotated all the way down. ( note; when the dimmer wheel is turned all the way up that turns on all the courtesy lights inside the Explorer and they will stay on with the doors closed) Use the dimmer wheel to adjust the brightness of your gauge lighting.
