Broken as in snapped? If so, and its in the on position, then yeah, no wonder it wont go off! But if all lights are removed/turned off, then no power is getting wasted.

No the boot has a seperate light system, like the glovebox light.

Take your healdight knob off and then you can turn the interior switch off.

If its not that, try disconnecting the door switches one by one till it stops. I guess these could have a habit of shorting out.
