Re: i can\'t turn off my light!

If you don't have the old-style pin switches in the door jambs for the dome light, then they're inside the door latches inside the doors. If it's the pin, unscrew it, unplug the connector, and use a pair of channel-locks to push the threaded collar down on the brass sleeve so the pin sticks out all the way. Then reinstall it, and close the door slowly. The door will push the sleeve into the collar to where it needs to be.

If it's the internal switch, I've heard some people have success with just hosing the latches out with WD-40 or Liquid Wrench.
