Every vehicle that I've experienced this problem in was due to the tail light fuse being burned out. This condition is because the tail lights and dash lights share a common fuse, which makes the dash lights act as an indicator as to whether or not your tail lights are working (although, this doesn't indicate whether the bulbs are good or not).

pretty easy really, make sure your interior lights are not turned on. Your headlights control should also be the interior light controller. Turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to turn your interior lights off. You'll run your battery down if you dont
check the ignition switch under the console on the steering column
First thing you want to check is the dimmer switch to see if it is turned all the way down.
On a 2002 Ford Explorer : On the headlight switch , select automatic , park lights, or low beam headlights and pull the headlight switch out towards you to turn the fog lights on ( push the switch in again to turn the fog lights off )

The headlights on a 1997 Ford Explorer XLT is adjusted using screws behind the lights. One is located on the top and side to allow for full control.
when you open the door to your vehicle or unlock it with the key FOB, the lights turn on. usually the interior, headlights, and reverse lights shine.
Perhaps you turned on the interior lights when you were adjusting the headlights?
You probably turned them on by accident. They are controlled with the same pull switch that turns on the headlights. By twisting the switch to the far left it will click and the dome lights will turn on, by twisting it to the right it will turn off the interior lights and will then dim the dashboard lights.
It sounds like a blown fuse or a bad head light switch

If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.
Press dome override button 3 or 4 times till you here a beep to put headlights and interior lights back on auto
Is door ajar light on also?
locate the fuse to the interior lights and remove it. On our 98 Explorer you turn the dash light adjustment switch off, next to the headlight switch.
If the interior lights stay on while driving on a 2002 Impala, there could be a problem with the headlight switch. Check the relay center for the headlights that is just behind the headlight switch.
just had this problem with my 2002 durango, the mechanic ran it on the computer and nothing showed up so he disconnected the battery and then reconnected it and everything works now. The headlights, locks, panel lights, interior lights, locks, rear wipers all run through the body assembly moduale. Hope this helps you.
should be with the head lights as an alternate switch or in combination with headlights, move switches in different combinations to see if you can get them to turn off
Check the fuse for the headlights. It is probably open.

The daylight running lights of a Ford Explorer can be turned off by using the manual headlight control switch. Place the switch in the middle position to turn the daytime running lights off. The headlights will then need to be turned on manually at dusk.
