Default 2004 ranger dome light not working properly

looking for a quick answer maybe before i start ripping things apart. my 2004 ford ranger edge dome light won't come on unless doors are open, and i think i am using the switch right, turn it up and push in, but nothing happens, maybe the switch is bad and i know i can rig something up, but just wanted to know if anyone has come across this.

had the truck 2 weeks so far and no problems, gas mileage is not that much better then my big dodge was, but truck is small, handles good, is newer, and is my first ford truck

thanks and happy holidays

You shouldn't have to push the switch in. Just roll it upwards until it "clicks".

thanks to all who replied, i kind of figured it was the switch, but was hoping that i wasn't using it right, will look at switch today, and see about putting in the mustang light. already read the posts about it and looked on ebay for a light. but cash is kinda low right now, christmas and just spent $250 to get windows tinted

Some members have mustang dome lights for sale on here.

250 for window tint? Dang they ripped you off.

I paid 135 for mine. 3m window tint was used

thanks for replies, from what i can surmise by pulling out the switch, it does not work in the up position, i can jumper it out and dome light comes on/off like it is supposed to, time for a new switch and will also look at mustang dome light.

paid $250 for the window tint, D&L in baltimore, all 4 windows, plus back slider and then 3 year unlimited warranty. They are a bit pricier then most, had my civic done for $125 but it took all day and not as good a job.

let me know how many pins are on your dimmer switch. i have several laying around. if i have one that has the right number of pins, pay for shipping and it's yours.

Tim, I have 2 of them. one seems to roll up smoothly, the other rolls up fine, but is really hard to get it to "click" to the dome position. maybe that's the same thing as yours. i'll send both if you want them. send me your address and i'll ship them out.

i'll send them out. if one of them works, you can cover shipping. if they don't work, then you don't owe me anything. sound good? i'm not doing anything with them. they have been sitting around for a couple years.
