Make sure the dome light has been turned off on the headlight control knob, if that is off then start looking for the defective door switch, you can unplug those to kill the switch.

Oh ok the dome light is off it is the lights by the backseat

They should have thier own separate switch, look closely it should have a ridge right down the center, they slide back and forth for on and off, the other style was a push button, push on push off. That is the only ones I know of back then. Do they look factory or something added aftermarket?

They look factory

Then the switch should be on the main body of the light.
