On mine, when you turn the interior lighting **** to the point where the interior lights come on, it turns on the cargo light as well.

Some the early-production 2003s have cargo lights but Ford deleted them later in the model year. If you have them, they can be turned on by rolling the dimmer wheel until it clicks.

2003's have all of the wiring in the harness, even the later ones that don't actually have the cargo lights. Just substitute a white/red/white cargo/stop light and plug it in. The cargo light wiring was deleted from the roof harness in the early part of the 2004 model year.
