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.

generally this is from the driver door switch going bad. it is used most often so it goes bad first.
go to a dealer parts department and buy the door switch. easy to take out and install, generally a snap or clip.

Just bought a used 2004 Excursion and the interior lights stay on until the battery wears down. would that be a bad roller switch for interior lights and dash lights?


Well, the lights on our 1998 Ford Taurus stay on for a 'limited' amount of time, say 20 minutes and automatically turn off, even if the door is left open or if the glove box light is left on due to a door left open.

I wonder if your body control computer is faulty in your 2004 Excursion?
Or, if the body control computer is fine, and it doesn't have this feature, then I would see if the door latch switch needs to have wd-40 sprayed on it.

We have a 1999 Ford Expeditioin that had this problem with the door open light going on when the door was actually closed. The tech sprayed wd-40 on the locking mechanism and the problem went away.

1999 Taurus - now windows won't open!!


You have probably blown a fuse. The interior light switch is probably faulty causing the light to stay on and the warning to come up.

I have a 2001 ford taurus ses, and the interior light stays on for a long time, sometimes it won't even shut off, also on my dash board the light for the doors and trunk stays on all the time what can I do...


buy a can of PB BLASTER lubrecant at your local parts store and spray all your door latches and trunk latch really good with it, then open and close each door 10 to 15 times this should free up the door ajar switchs that are stuck

Interior Lights and Door Ajar light stay w/beeping noise.


Try spraying WD-40 into the door latching mechanism (door side). I learned this fix after two battery replacements, but have only had to spray twice in the more than seven years of ownership

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.
