Dome light doesn't come on when door opens?

Hey guys!

I just got my 08 F-350 CCLB today. Problem is that when I open any one of the four doors the front and rear dome lights do not come on. I can manually turn them on by the switch on the light but turning the dimmer knob also does not turn them on. I haven't started to trouble shoot the problem yet but I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on where to start. I will check bulbs/fuses tomorrow and see what's going on.

Thanks!

It is... There is no OFF/DOOR switch.

The center light operates off of the doors, the corner lights from the switches. Check the bulbs.

I have the same problem, I just got an 08 F350 last night and I can manually turn them on but with any door open they will not come on. Also my mirrors wont adjust, but will fold in and out and extend in and out as well just not the mirrors them selves. Not sure if this problem is related to the dome lights or not.
