    I have the exact same problem. After many trials of pulling over and opening and re-closing doors, I just gave up and took it as a sensory problem. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.

Why do the interior lights stay on when doors are closed and engin is off in 2003 ford windstar


one of the door switches is stuck. you can try and free up, however you need to find which one it is. try and spray pblaster, or rust renetrant into the top of the latches, and dont forget the hatch door as they usually stick the most. someone with a good scanner can tell which door switch is staying on, or the dealer can for a fee........jim

Interior lights stay on after doors closed.


Had same problem with my 98 windstar. I checked all the doors to see which door it was and found it was the sliding door. I try w40 did not work i guess sensors were to worn. The only solution was to take sensor from the door and cross the black wires. It works no more light on.

Use WD40 spray and spry inside lock,Dirt can cause the sensor to stay open circuit either if it door is open or closed. Spray and open and close door few times, and repeat it till light goe's out.

Door light in dash stays on, interior lights don't work and auto locks wont engage.


hi ya it seems one of the door switches is broken or disengaged on each door frame you will find a push in switch witch operates the interior light, door warning light on dash and remote locking if one of them is not working it will show on dash as a door not closed it will prevent the interior light from working and also stop the auto locking system from working properly the locking system is connected to the interior lights
Hope yhis helps

Warning bell won't stop sounding


i went thru a considerable amount of relays in my windstar. I would suggest stopping by a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and picking up a handfull of relays for the windstar/freestar. look under the dash in the fuse panel for the relays and replace any in the circuits affected. if you are in luck the relay circuits will be shown on the cover of the fuse panel.

if the problem is the sliding door... there are a row of circular copper contact points on the door jam as it slides shut as well as "fingers" on the door that make contact with them when you close the door. Use an eraser or similar to make sure the contacts are clean.

Do not overlook the relays in the engine compartment near the battery as a cause for some of the issues you are having.

as a side note... i dropped into my local ford dealer and talked nicely to the parts guy.... he gave me a print out of all the fuses/relays and their locations which was a huge help. give that a try.

let me know how you made out.... and take a moment if this was a successful fix to rate this solution.. thanks

Robert

P.S. i was able to manage almost 400,000 kms from my windstar before i sold it. and the only issue it had then was that it would not stay running (a fairly easy fix)

Power door


Was something spilled on the button or is it sticky. sounds like the button is malfunctioning and sticking in the OPEN position. Contact cleaner that can be purchased from electronics store may clean it up and free it from sticking' it evaporates quickly while acting as a solvent to clean electrical components of "GUNK" that can build up, other than that sounds as though you need to order a switch.

My windstar was horrid for relays that needed to be replaced.... locate the relay(s) that control the power doors and replace them.
