Why would the interior lights on a 1997 Escort work only with the switch but not when the doors open?

maybe the swith bye the interrior light has a bad connection, or maybe the push switch triggered bye the door opening and closing isn't connecting propperly. either way it sounds just as a bad connection somewhere between the two. Andy

I believe if you turn your gauge panel dimmer switch all the way it turns on the interior lights when all the doors are closed

Just to the right of the headlight switch on your dash is a dimmer wheel switch for your gauge lighting , if the switch is rotated all the way down ( past the detent ) the interior lights won't come on . Also , if the switch is rotated all the way up ( past the detent ) the interior lights will come on with the doors closed

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.
