Switch might be left on dome itself, door jam push button switch is jammed/stuck, or faulty dome rheostat.

I have owners manual 02 ford taurus about that dome lite prob. i dont no wat fuse will b for that/ any idea. Its not listed at all


Just found the solution to this problem which I had myself. The dashboard dimmer wheel scrolls up then clicks into a fully up position. In this position, the dome light stays on even when the car is off and all doors are shut. If you scroll the dimmer wheel down past that clicked position, the dome light will turn off normaly.
