You can, but one of the benefits ascribed to steam cleaning is that it doesn't leave anything behind. If you put detergent into steam you either have to leave it in what you've cleaned or rinse it out somehow. Not that this is impossible in much of a car's interior but for things like headliners, the "nothing but dampness" left behind is part of the attraction.

i did this all by hand although it wasnt perfect when done it was a very good improvement! i used Autobrite Direct FAB at 1:10 and a stiff brush to agitate, used a damp mf cloth to wipe down before the usual going over with the wet&dry vac to remove any excess moisture

For seat fabric I just use 10% APC (Surfex HD as it happens) and a suitable brush. Lightly dampen fabric with APC, agitate with the brush using circular motions, wipe firmly with a close-loop pile MF towel dipped in warm water and wrung out hard. Repeat if needed. Never found a stain I couldn't shift with this method, and I have two small boys in the back of my car! That said this is on pretty tough Toyota upholstery, also works well on the slightly plusher fabrics in eg a Honda Jazz, but have never tried it on eg Alcantara or similar.

Roof linings need a pretty careful approach otherwise you'll get sagging and watermarks. I usually spray a very little 10% APC onto a damp MF and lightly dab / wipe the offending area. Then I blot dry with kitchen towel.
I usually follow the same procedure (APC of your choice) when doing a deep cleaning and also works for me.

As all the mates are telling you, take a lot of care with the headlining, specially if the car has a few years old.
