How does the Dome-Light turn on & off in a Second Generation Explorer? I do not see any pin-switch between the door. Can anyone tell me what wire (color and location) controls it?

Thanks

Switch is part of the door latch mechanism. It's inside the door.
 






What color wires?

Which wire is HOT?(color) When it shuts, does it simply just disconnect the circut?

Whenever a wire is labeled with two colors, the first color listed is the basic
color of the wire, and the second color is the stripe marking of the wire.
These are the standard abbreviations that are used by Ford
