Wow, been a while since I worked on a '66! Sold my old Mustang about 20 years ago. I would say that it's that little pin with spring loaded head that your door hits against when closed. When you open the door, it usually let's the pin extend out, which makes your dome light come on. Or it is the switch on your head lights. You know when you spin it one way to turn on your interior lights? Has to be one of the two. I assume the fuses are all good?
