Lol I heard on the news that town leaders are encouraging people to tell on their neighbors for watering. Come to North Dakota. We pay jack shit for water. It comes straight from the Montana Mountains. Plentiful here.

Rangers never came with cab lights. Sounds like your problem is, someone played electrician, and didn't know what they were doing. This is why I never buy a vehicle if someone hacked into the stock wire harness.
