After looking at those pictures, I would say there'* your problem. As Kevin suggested, check the grounds under the dash on both sides. something funny happened to that car. That'* far more corrosion then we should see on a 2000+

Pick up a few cans of electro contact cleaner and start the hunt. Spray, check, spray again, check everything. I know it'* a pain, but I suggest taking out all the seats and carpet. Take up each ground, clean up, put a dab of dielectric grease, and reattach. Get a good wire brush. If a lot of water got in to the car, it will need to be treated as a flood damaged car.

Are you checking power with a voltage meter or just attempting to use the switch? I had 2 problems with my windows in the last year. First 3 motors burnt out in the span of 5 months and then I had my wife spill a soda on the drivers side controls which made the child lock get stuck.

As far as interior lights have you checked to ensure the door switch'* are working correctly so they prompt the lights to turn on. I've seen those get stuck in before and with the corosion it wouldn't surprise me if that happened.
