Unless you can find a diagram for the location of the relays... unplug them one at a time... till you find the one that controls the lights

Where is the interior light relay on 2001 ford windstar


Your interior lights are controlled by the GEM - generic electronic module !
Battery Saver The battery saver relay is controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM) and is located in the fuse junction panel. The battery saver relay is designed to supply B+ voltage to the following:
  • dome and map lamp switches
  • visor lamps
  • glove box lamp switch
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior courtesy lamp relay
  • delayed accessory relay
The function of the battery saver relay is to prevent excessive battery drain by interior lighting circuits. The GEM supplies a ground signal to the battery saver relay anytime one of the wake-up inputs of the GEM is activated to operate the battery saver relay. A wake-up command is sent when:
  • any door becomes ajar or is opened or closed.
  • the ignition key is inserted or removed.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to RUN.
  • the ignition switch is turned from OFF to ACC.
  • a wake-up request is received from the remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module (if equipped).
  • The GEM will maintain the ground input with ignition in RUN or for 40 minutes from the last input activation with ignition in the OFF position. After 40 minutes the ground signal is discontinued.
This de-engergizes the battery saver relay preventing B+ voltage supply to the controlled switches and circuits.
  • Courtesy Lamp On Continuously
  • Short to power.
  • Damaged switch.
  • Generic electronic module.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test AF .

  • Measure resistance between interior lamp relay connector Pin 85, Circuit 434 (LB/BK) and ground.
Is resistance 5 ohms or less? Yes No SERVICE Circuit 434 (LB/BK) for short to ground. RESTORE vehicle. RETEST system. REPLACE interior lamp relay. RESTORE vehicle. RETEST system. Interior lamp relay is located in the Instrument panel fuse box .

My interior lights will not work all fuses are good and I have replaced the light switch and the bcm what else can it be


Diagnosis by parts replacement is getting a little frustrating and expensive is it? Did you bother to scan the BCM for fault codes before replacing it? Have you scanned your new BCM for fault codes?
Have you verified proper operation of the Inadvertent Power Relay? Have you verified proper operation of the courtessy lamp relay? Have you checked to see if the BCM can command the courtessy lamp relay on? Is the BCM recieving power from the Inadvertent Power relay? Are your courtessy lamps recieving power from the Inadvertent Power relay? Is the courtessy lamp relay providing a good ground for your interior lights?...These are just SOME of the possibilities - that is what DIAGNOSIS is for...

Interior lights will not go out, reading advise it says, maybe door switch (one located on each side of door), how do you adjust or make them properly function so the lights go out?


It will not be that at all.. The relay is the faulty item causing this problem. Ford has had this problem on all makes they have with dome and interior lights staying on
Just replace the relay

Both of my signal lights are not working. i checked the fuses and they are fine what is the problem


Most likely a bad lighting control module. Did your interior light stop working not long ago, and did the lights flash at varying speeds for awhile?

Creepy flashing lights


Check the adjustment of the rear hatch. As you turn the car body flexes and if the rear hatch is not adjusted correctly the interior lights will come on.
As for the sunroof, without proper diagnose I can only guess (motor, relay, fuse ).
