The fuse will be a blue 15 amp generally knee height beside your steering column ,you have to release the panel covering the fuses to see them . best to kneel on the ground with the door open. Find the fuse by pulling out and replacing untill you get the right one, usually around number 25 and sometimes called a courtesy light. The fuse diagram is on the inside of the cover when you remove it. there will be a indent for your fingers to pull on and release the panel/cover. Have you tried manually pushing the switch on the door column and spraying some WD 40 into it ? hope this helps you.

Two interior lights will not go out


Bad door switch, or bad connection to it. Usually looks like a little push button pin type switch in the door jamb. Try pushing them (1 per door) in and out by hand a few times just to see if the lights go out (one at a time keep other door(s) closed) Sometimes they can be adjusted if it just the door not making full contact with the switch causing it not to activate. If no luck, try removing them from door jamb and manually connect the wires together to see if the switch itself is bad, if so, replace switch. Only other thing I could think of is a bad switch where you can turn on the interior lights manually from the light control. If you can't get it to work, you can always pull the courtesy light fuse so you don't run your battery down while you investigate the problem.

Light won't turn off when door is closed on 2003 ford explorer


2 things to look for. the switch on the dome light itself and the door switches. These switches make a ground connection so the bulb will light. The dome light switch may be faulty allowing current to flow all the time. The door switches do the same with one exception. The wire going to each door switch can become pinched or come in contact with a sharp body part causing the dome light to stay on. Check the obvious first before you start tearing the interior panels apart.

look around the car on each door, you will see a small black switch on wich the door shuts on. This switch when open brings on the light and bell. Go around and check by pushing each one of these in. This should stop the light/charm. It works on what is called an open circuit, if you check each of the sensors and the problem persists, then one of the sensors may be faulty or their is a broken wire somewhere in the circuit. These switches should easily unscrew from the door frame. For the mean time to stop your battery going flat, remove the interior light globe.

My interior lights won't turn off and kills my battery where's the fuse or how do I fix it?


It appears that one of the door operated switches for the interior light is making contact even though the door is closed. This is indicated by the interior light staying on. It could also be that the "Off/ Door/On" Control switch on the main interior is faulty. Check each door switch by operating manually with finger with door open to see if light goes out.

It this check makes light go out then it could be that one of the door catches is slightly out of adjustment allowing door to sit slightly away from body. Try checking each door for a loose fit by pushing the closed door in and observing if interior light goes off, especially the driver's which gets the most use. There should be only a little movement as the sealing rubbers are squeezed a little more. If door catches are tight then it may be that the rubber pad attached to the door that pushes on the door switch button has compressed and is allowing switch to make contact. If these checks don't produce results then there could be a problem with one of the door switches being faulty and making constant contact.

All my interior lights remain on when car switched off


It is not a fuse. the problem is in one of the door switches that is not grounding out when the door is closed. Each switch will have to be checked until the faulty one is found.
