Default dome light always on

Have a 1998 xlt, the dome lights will not go off, they won't go off in any switch position, they won't go off when I pull the key out? Any ideas?
Thanks, Bill

You stated something about a "switch." Was this the door jam switch?

Spray your latch mechanisms with wd40, then slam the doors a bunch of times. Worked for me.

Like everyone else stated, spray it then see if that works. I had the same problem in an Oldsmobile I had and spraying it with WD40 solved the issue.
