lol, I swear the WD40 in the door latch fix needs to be a sticky.

Tried the WD-40 but mine still seems to be busted. If I put the switch in this one spot and one of the lights goes out, but not the other. I'm using the same switch and fixture from my old ranger (same year) and it worked fine on the old one.

So i just ended up taking out one of the bulbs.

This happened to me this weekend, actually. Lights went on and stayed on. When I pulled the cover, 1 of the round bulbs was out, but the other one and the cylindrical light were lit. I had to pull the bulbs so they wouldn't drain the battery. When I went to pull the unlit bulb, it lit up. Seems the bulb wasn't all the way in the socket.
Tried the WD40 trick and it worked perfectly. Have you tried all the combinations of switch position and the door open/closed?

Well the bulbs were all the way in the socket. I know this for certain. Thanks for the input though.
