Sooooo what is your question? Did you get the part? Install it? Light go out?

try spraying the latch with wd40 or electrical cleaner first... if I am understanding you correctly that should do it.. hope this helps

I found a listing on for an interior light relay for your truck. Your relay might be stuck, causing the lights to remain on until the battery rundown feature kicks in and the computer shuts down the lights after the 10 minute time out. HTH. -Jim
