Default Interior lights won't turn off

The interior lights of my truck stay on all the time unless I pull the fuse. I don't want to pull the fuse because it kills everything in the cab. The switch for the interior lights is rolled all the way down in the off position but the lights still stay on, even with the doors closed and locked and the truck off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Check your door switch. Its a little round black switch in between the door hinges.

I check those, it turned out to be one of the switches for the map lights in the over head console. Luckily it only took me a few hours to find the problem. I just rewired the light to bypass the switch and it all works fine now.

Good to hear that you found the issue and fixed it. A fix is always nice. Reps for the find.
