Default Interior Lights

All my interior lights have stopped working. The 2 in the console up front on the roof and my dome light in the back. Any easy fix for this? Truck is a 2001 Ram Sport.

What position is the master switch in? Check the fuses.

you need to break out the multi meter and start testing. ide first check and make sure your getting voltage to the switch and then after the switch. you can also pull the switch apart and check for bad connections.

as for teh third break light test power and grounds.

There is a fuse in the dash block called IOD. It's one of those with a cover on it, like the air bag ones. i replaced it in my 2001 Ram and the radio, interior lights, and power mirrors all are working again. I don't know what it is for, but the IOD circuit was my problem.

Hmm..interesting. I'll have to check that before my mechanic has the part in that he thinks will fix it. He called it a floor switch? I'm not exactly sure where that is located or what is has to do with the interior lights not working.
