The rotator dimmer switch next to the head light switch maybe engaged ! You should ear a click noise when moved up

Michael, the rear dome light switch is on the upper control panel above the climate control unit. TTux, check the door contact switches they're located on the pillar where the door hinges mount

Door switch would turn on all the light the rotary switch. As taxi mode and well only turn the rear upper dome light on

I started a new question because I couldn't figure out how to edit the original one to include the rear door lights, which are also on. I don't know where the rotator dimmer switch is located because there is nothing next to the headlight knob.

The dimmer switch has nothing to do with your problem (it's on the instrument cluster by the way). On most Mercedes when only the rear doors are opened only the lights for the back turn on.
