Need help with interior lights won't turn off

Im new to this site but have been reading threads to improve my 66 Impala SS. Today the interior lights came on while driving home from a car show and I've tried turning off the lights and turning the headlights knob but the interior lights won't turn off. What color are the wires to look for under the dash or fuse do I have to replace to turn theses lights off. I had to disconnect the battery so the battery won't die tonight. I reconnected the battery and the lights turned back on, any ideas or help would be appreciated. Thanks...

Check the wire to the door switch (all of them). If any one of them shorts out it will turn on the lights.

bad headlight switch

My dome lights were sticking on, replaced the headlight switch, no more dome light problems. Switch was 12.00 at a local parts house, surprised he had one to fit the 64.
