Hi,
Doesn't sound like a fuse, if it were it wouldn't work at all.
Sounds more like the light unit itself.
I don't know a lot about US cars. But I know interior lights can be quite delicate.
If they have been removed for any reason or dismantled to change the bulb they can be a bit difficult to
re-assemble correctly. Ths may cause problems with the switch
If there is a switch on the light unit, try playing around with it when the fault ocurrs.
If this has any effect, it's probably the light unit itself.
The only other thing I can think of is a fault in the door switch, but if it was I'm sure you'd get another warning like a dashlight or buzzer.

Interior light stays on even engine is off, light never goes off. What't the possible cause?


Check your light switch to make sure it isnt locked in the inner light position! Try turning it both directions and see if the lights go out! Also check for a timer on lights where they stay on for so long, then shut off! New cars and trucks tend to have that, and if so, it may be out of adjustment!!! If you call Ford, they can usually tell you over the phone how to adjust it!

Turn signals blin continually


There is only a few things that can cause blinkers to blink continually, meaning if your saying they wont shut off, Normally it is the blinker flasher or a fuse. Sometimes it can be in the blinker switch itself. I first would check the flasher, and turn signl fuse. If the blinker stays on and does not flash, still can be bad flasher or fuse or a ground problem, You would then have to check the wires around area where there contact to the tail light blinkers and front blinkers. But first start as said earlier with checking flasher fuse, switch and fuse. Mike

The door sensor stays on when i open and close the side door on my 1998 ford windstar which causes the interior light to stay on.. what can i do to stop that from happening?


I had the same problem. Cheap way to fix is to remove fuse. Only problem with that is my power windows were on the same fuse so they wouldn't work without the fuse. Alternative was to remove the bulbs from interior lights and leave the fuse in. The door ajar light will remain on but at least your interior lights won't be on running down your battery.

I got a 2002 ford taurus and when i go to turn my headlights on the interior light dont work and the blinkers light up but they do blink when im turning, i was what it could be thats causing that thank...


Many turn signal lamps will have multiple bulbs in them. If "one" of the bulbs is faulty, the interior lamp or lamps will come on, indicating a bad bulb. You will need to turn on your left blinker and view the bulb and make sure all bulbs appear to be blinking on front and rear of the car, then repeat with the right blinker. If you find one that doesn't appear to look right or blinks faster slower or dimmer, then replace the bulbs in that turn signal. The interior light may begin working properly when you replace the "shorted" bulb for the turn signals. If it does not, check the fuses to make sure the "shorted" bulb didn't damage your fuse for the interior lights.

Interior lights remain on after doors are closed causing battery to drain overnight. When fuse is removed lights go of and battery stays charged.
