Interior lights won't turn off

So as of yesterday my interior lights in my 2007 Jeep Compass stay on unless I turn the dimmer switch all the way off, which then makes my dashboard lights barely lite and very hard to see.

Normally if I need the interior lights on, I push the dimmer switch all the way up to the last notch/click and they stay on. Then when I want them off, I slightly move it back down to the highest option so my dashboard lights are really bright.

Any ideas?

Sounds a problem on the switch itself or a shorted wire somewhere.

Unhappy

Wouldn't think the interior (roof) lights should be linked to the instrument cluster lamps?

Sounds like shorted wires to me, need a schematic.

Do both front lamps do same?

what about the rear?

Interesting, the indicator stick instrument panel dimmer also switches the interior lights on at the highest setting - very weird!

From what you describe it would seem that your's is faulty, does dimmer click at ending?
