Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Looking to take fuse out for interior lights due to faulty door switch causeing lights to come on when door is closed
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.

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.
