Interior light issue

I just purchased a 2008 ford focus S this month and when I open any of the doors on the car the map lights do not come on and there is no central dome light the dimmer switch does not do anything except dim the dash panel does, anyone know if the lights are supposed to turn on when the doors are open?

Make sure that they are not turned off. Per your owners manual, page 38:
Map lamps
To turn on the map lamps, press the
outer edge of the clear lens. The
map lamp lights when:
• any door is opened.
• the remote entry controls are
pressed and the ignition is off.

If it didn't come with one, you can down load one here: Ford Focus: Owners Manuals.

Also check the lamps, and voltage at the lamps.

Good Luck.
