Default Interior Light And Opening Door

My extended cab Ranger has the dome light with reading lights. When either door is opened, the dome light comes on. I have been unable to find the switch to temporarily disable this, so I'm reaching out to the community for help.

I do not believe such a switch exists, unless you are talking about the one the door closes on.

AFAIK there is no switch to disable the dome light from working when you open the door.

I realize this is a very old thread but my recently purchased B3000 'Ford' has a working door light on the passenger side but not on the driver side and I dont see the switch for it on either side. A little help please. Never mind....I read through a dozen more posts from my search and found most of the answer. I guess the stupid switch in in the door latch; what a fine place to put it.
