Electrical problem
2002 Ford Ranger

Trying to figure out how and where exactly to install this switch (SW-5528, xf1z-14018-aa), that switches off the roof and "door ajar" light off, when you close the door.
I was told that it goes in the door jam, but I see no way of doing that unless you take off the panel off the door.
Need the right instructions.
Do you
have the same problem?

The switch is located on the door frame pillar where the hinges are on the door to chassis?

So sorry. I gave you the wrong info in my last post. It is correct this time. Hope this makes up for my mistake !

Interior Lighting
The interior lighting is broken down into two groups: the courtesy lamps and the illuminated entry lamps. Both lighting features interact with the courtesy light arbitrator. The battery saver is also listed.
Courtesy Lighting
The courtesy lamps consist of the dome lamp and/or map lights. The courtesy lamps can be activated by the GEM using the panel dimmer switch, or by any ajar door. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active, or when the vehicle speed is greater than 8 kph (5 MPH). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 5 kph (3 MPH) and a new door open warning lamp switch signal is received. The inputs are:
ignition switch position
driver door ajar switch
front passenger door ajar switch
rear left door ajar switch
rear right door ajar switch
Vehicle Speed Switch (VSS)

The outputs are:
battery saver relay
interior lamp relay
