Default Inside light

For some reason the light on the inside roof of my truck doesnt go out at all. this just randomly started last night and now i have to disconnect the battery to make it turn off. What could cause that?

the switch in the door latch. spray the latch with some wd40, close and open several times. should be good as new. very common problem with rangers.

ha you will totally feel pretty dumb afterwards. I do it alot when I go to work and turn on the dome light with the truck off to look for something before I get out and then I get out and close the door and the light stays on because its still turned up. and I have to unlock the truck and roll it down over that little hump section. but its all good man, good that nothings broke.
