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.

95 Chrysler grand voyager why do all interior lights come on when dimming or illuminating dashboard instrument cluster?

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.
