Default passenger door switch?

where is the passenger door switch that activates the dome light? is it magnetic? this is for a 2010 ranger xlt supercab. i want to be able to turn on the dome light after it cycles off without having to lean over and rotating the dimmer switch. thanks

alldata.com but you have to have a user name and pw. If you need anything specific I can copy and paste it.

If Im not mistaken I have had that on one of my other Rangers and thats what it was. Door ajar light on and the dome light.

If its anything like previous model rangers it is a switch that screws (just turns a quarter to half turn and locks in place) into the bottom of your latch. At the top of this switch is pretty much a button that when the door is closed this button gets pressed (all happens inside the latch). When this button is pressed is just completes the circuit which tells the GEM that the doors are closed.

yep, this 2010 is wired in the same manner. i will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the switch wiring so as to hard wire in a toggle switch somewhere on the door panel to be able to turn interior lights on repeatedly if nessesary from the passenger side without always having to lean over to rotate the dimmer switch. this model year automatically shuts off the interior light after a pre determined time.

i just tapped into the dimmer switch and installed a switch under the dash on the passenger side to activate the interior light. it sends a signal to the stock relay that will reset the timer (or whayever they use to turn them off automatically) for the light. this makes it easier to turn on from that side as opposed to leaning over to access the dimmer.
