Interior lights quit working

So I was fiddling with a loose switch in the forward penthouse light trying to get it seated properly when the light went out along with the rear penthouse light, reading lights above the lower couch, and the dome reading lights up front. What gives? The only interior light that is still operational is the lower rear light mounted just above the rear entrance.

I pulled the cover off of the light and the switch seemed to be in good condition. No corrosion or frayed wires, and it seemed to be in working order.

All of these lights are of the LED variety. The penthouse lights are the type with two switches, one on each side, and three bulbs.

Any recommendations on what might have happened to cause all but one of the lights to quit working?

Thanks for any help in advance!

All but one going out is strange, but start at the 12v fuse panel. Could just be a blown fuse.

If not a panel fuse, they have one in the front left corner over the drivers seat. You will have to dig for it.

Ok, I'm assuming you mean front left corner of the PH? This is a 1989 ford E250, if that's of any consequence.

Thanks

Exactly. Happened to me and had to dig through manual to find it.

This is what I found above the driver's seat after removing the fabric and a couple of panels. I'm guessing a fuse should have been located where these two wires are connected?

It's only the penthouse lights, the two orbital reading lights in the same housing as the dome light, and the two gaucho reading lights that are affected.
