So, from time to time the dash lights will shut off on my 00 Explorer Sport. I've found that the dash mounted dimmer switch is actually a bit erratic (you can shift it left and right and the interior lights will come on and off). When I looked up the dimmer switch on rock auto. They keep showing a turn signal lever.
Does anyone know the part number for the dash mounted scrolling dimmer switch?

Also, is there any other good ground locations for the interior lights that I should check to make sure everything is tight and clean?

(Truck has sat for 5 years, and I'm trying to bring it back to life to give to my son)

Good question Phil. YOUR link shows compatible with OP's 2000 Sport. Either way, this sounds like the "best" option. LOL

How to refurbish a 1998 Dimmer Switch

I agree Steve, certainly a less expensive option for the OP. Also, I've found that lemon juice makes a great contact cleaner for brass and copper. I think I've also heard that ketchup is also a good cleaner, but I've never tried that. I guess it's the mild acid that does the job.
