    You might have blown a fuse. If your lighter doesn't work, that probably it. The yare on the same circuit, and the short is usually in the lighter.

    The switch for the lights is on the hinge section of the door, not where the striker is (which is where the seat belt mechanism switch. Look in between the hinges at the front area of the door, that is where you WILL find the pin switch.

    With the drivers door open, the switch is just to the left of the parking brake pedal, in the area that's covered by the door when it's closed.
