The back hatch lever that you use to open the door, open the back hatch and hold the lever up. You'll see a yellow thing, sorry not sure the name of it. You need to spray this really well with WD40, its a liquid level that gets dirty from dirt kicking up from dumper. I had taken my van many many times as light stayed on forever, Ford could never fix it. After spraying the heck out of it, close the door and let it sit, it should drop and inside light should go off. It's not the slider. Good Luck.

The illumination switch won't shut off

First check the dimmer switch and make sure it is not turned all to way to the right or left ? The dimmer switch controls how bright your meter lights are, but if you turn it to the far left or right it will activate the interior lights and will stay on regardless. Other than that it could be a bad door switch, some back lights also have a 3 way switch, one way makes the light stay on all the time, the other position has the lights off no matter if the door or dimmer switch is on. The middle position work only when a door or back latch is open, then goes off when closed, hope this helps ?

The fuse box is out of my car right now because when i left it in, the indoor lights would not shut off, resulting in my battery dying. this happened twice. since the fuse box is not in the car right now,...

Sounds like one of the door switches is faulty causing the interior lights to stay on. Is anything else not working?
The first thing to try with this is to clean all of the contacts on the doors. Does it give any indication that a door is open?
There are three slider rollers on each slider door that roll in a rail. Most of the time these wear out (they are plastic teflon or something) and need to be replaced. It's very common to need these if one of the doors "sticks". It doesn't latch all the way and then the interior lights stay on. If it gets really bad the open door indicator will chime when you put the van in any gear but it sounds like the problem is just starting on your van.

Let me know how this works out for you.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.

It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.
