Exclamation Help please

Could someone help with this question. Ok so my ford has a cargo light in the back of the cab like all fords. But i am having trouble to figure out if i can turn on the cargo light. I just have a nob for my head lights. Or could be a dead bulb or bad circuit. HELP please

the dimmer light turns it on. For some reason, ford didnt make the cargo light come on when the doors open in the ranger, on every other truck of theirs it does

You can make it come on when the doors open. Just gotta run a wire from dome light to the 3rd brake light.

If you have a test light. Open the door poke each wire to find the positive wire at the dome light.
Turn ur dial so the cargo light comes on find the power wire the same way. Connect a wire to each with t-tap wire connectors.
