Hi there,The interior lighting is handled by the body control module. You can't find a fuse listed for them specifically because the BCM sees signals and turns the lights on. You can check the fuses for the BCM to see if one of them has blown and is causing the issue, but from here it looks like the BCM may have stopped working.I am sending along a diagram of the interior fuse box, I highlighted the 2 fuses to check. If one is blown, then it's likely the problem, if not, then it should be diagnosed with the scan tool to see if the BCM is the problem.Please let me know what more I can do to assist you today.
