Number 98 in the attached picture is a terminator for the light circuit. That part is likely faulty. Unfortunately, that part is no longer available new but there is on that is ridiculously priced on eBay at the link below. Can you test to see if it has continuity?

It has continuity , there is power voltage supplied to the terminator.

Sorry , there is NO power voltage to the connector terminal ,that supply power to terminator.

Then there is probably a break in the internal wiring that you will not likely be able to access. Is there power at and through the door switch still?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Over the weekend, I found that ice / water dispenser have the common orange color wire that share the same power to the interior lights
the ice / water dispenser is not working either , is their a fuse control this circuit ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 6 months ago.

There is no fuse, no. There has to be an issue with the wiring.
