Wd 40 on the door latch. Had the same problem. I just spray both sides once every couple of months...no more issues.

Check all door pin switches.  open the doors and unscrew the pin switches, disconnect the wiring and cover with tape. do this one at a time to locate faulty switch. Keep me posted

Interoir lights stay on after truck shut off. 2002 Ford F-150 Super Cab. any hints on what to look foe?


If the interior lamps and the door ajar light stay on after removing the keys and closing the door, this is usually a sign that the door ajar switch is gummed up.

Liberal spraying of WD-40 in the latch and close open the door a few times. It can take up to 5 cycles of this to get the door ajar latch working correctly again.

There is a thread on F150online.com in the electrical forum ( sticky at the top ) that has pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if you are unsure on this.

Keyless entry isn't working and alarm was tripped


Check your door latches. Since the light stays on, one of them isn't reading properly. Once you get that fixed, the remote should work. The light problem could be related. The computer thinks the door isn't shut so that part of the system thinks you aren't moving.

Where are the door pins for the door ajar light


The door ajar switches are located inside the door they are attached to the door latch assembly, they twist in, you will need to remove the rear window glass run channel to access them, this is your problem, the switches stick and cause this problem. There is a TSB concerning this problem as well.
