I dont know what is up with my dome light inside my truck, its been like this since I got the truck. It works if you put the switch from side to side, turning 1 side of the dome light on. But it doesnt turn on by itself if you open the door and it doesnt turn on when you hit the switch on the inside to turn it on, any ideas on how to remedy this?

is it a dual element bulb? If so the second light may be burnt out. If not check the door sensors or even the fuse box. It'll end up being something simple.

Sounds like you have a bad pin switch for one of the doors. See if one is broken or stuck in.

Dude rangers are notorious for the damm some light problems. Mine would stay on forever so i just took all the bulbs out and got me a mag light :) try cleaning your door pin thingies.

my 2000 ranger had all kinds of issues with the dome light. they weren't big enuf to schedule a warranty job for, but every time i had the truck in for something else i made them work on it, figured sooner or later FORD would decide they needed to use a higher quality switch. 2 yr lease, and i bet they worked on the dome light 10 times, the service manager was really sick of it.
