My wife just inherited her dad's 2001 Eddie Bauer Explorer. Among the several problems we've encountered is a mystery: What is the left side "LAMP" switch on the compass/temperature module supposed to turn on? The right side turns on the map light, but repeated pushing of the left one seemingly does nothing. The pristine condition owner's manual is silent on these buttons.

Clearly, there is 1) a bulb burned out, 2) the switch is bad, 3) a fuse is blown, or 4) everyone in my family is blind.

A quick pointer is greatly appreciated!

We FINALLY figured it out. It was option 5) a lightly corroded bulb holder. And, seemingly, Ford never watched "Ghostbusters": Never cross the beams!
