My interior lights won't turn off no mater what I do other than pull the fuse. I just recently scored a dimmer switch on EBay and have yet to put it in. But, I've started to think this may be due to the dimmer function of the interior lights. Is that controlled by a relay? If so, where is that relay? If it isn't a relay, where else should I look? I've already checked the door switches and even inside the door panels for anything shorting. Be advised, when this first started happening I could faintly smell smoke at the drivers door but could not locate the source. Please help.

It is most likely the door switch. It is a very simple switch, or button, located in the door jamb. It threads into the jamb and has one wire attached to it. when the door is open it creates a path to ground. Check this, it has probably fused closed.
