Head on down to Nappa and see if they can hook you up.. if all else fails, see if anyone on here can mail you a switch from a JY or somewhere. If all else fails, start calling around and check craigslist for parts

It's common for the interior dimmer (rheostat) switch to go bad. You can get a new one online for a lot less than from Ford. This is one of the few parts I won't buy used.

I used one from an Explorer Sport that will allow you to turn on the dome lamp by going all the way up and the cargo lamps by going all the way down. It's wired differently but it works great if you can figure out how to wire it up.

mine was doing that when i gout my truck.

i just pushed it up really hard and it started working, i had to turn it on and off a few times to get it to work normal, but its been fine for a few years now.


if you feel like taking the dash panel off, they are super easy to take apart and clean.
