    2001 f-150 supercrew lariat- i pulled #1 relay (interior lighting) due to the drivers side door ajar switch sticking resulting in interior lights staying on. truck runs fine but ran across an additional problem. my instrument lights, tail lights (brake lights work) not working and my headlights work but in order to shut them off i have to turn all the way counterclockwise and then back to off position, which i understand is symptomatic of a bad headlight switch. my question is, can running the truck with the number 1 relay pulled cause this or is this just coincidental.

Removing a relay can cause all kinds of problems. The door ajar switch may have just need to be sprayed with a lubricant to unstick it so the lights would go off.reinstall relay to see if concers goes away.

Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

What color are the wires that go from door switch to dome lights on a 2005 mustang v6 conv.


The door switch doesn't go to the dome lights , the switch (door ajar switch ) is an input to the SMJ - smart junction box or body control module take your pick .
Principles of Operation
When the SJB detects a request for lighting, it turns on the interior lamps by supplying power to the lamps. The request for lighting can be an open door signal from a door ajar switch, an interior lighting on command from the instrument panel dimmer switch or an unlock command from a remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter.
The door ajar switches are hard-wired directly to the SJB. The 2 door ajar switches are normally closed when the doors are closed. The decklid ajar switch is normally closed when the decklid is closed. All door ajar switches receive voltage from the SJB and each has its own ground circuit.
The instrument panel dimmer switch receives a ground signal from the SJB. The instrument panel dimmer switch provides variable resistance for backlighting the instrument cluster and a toggle ON/OFF function for the interior lights.
The RKE receiver is contained inside the SJB. When the SJB receives an unlock request from an RKE transmitter, it unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lamps. There could be DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB ! You can not access these codes with a OBD2 code reader , need a factory scan tool .
B1319 Driver Door Ajar Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test D . B1327 Passenger Door Ajar Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test D . B2021 Dome Lamp Input Return Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test A . B2550 Dome Lamp Output Circuit Short to Ground Go To Pinpoint Test A . B2554 Dome Lamp Output Circuit Failure Go To Pinpoint Test D . Do you know B-codes -body control .
Your best bet is to take to a ASE certified repair facility or a Ford dealer .

What does the door ajar light and check engine light have in common


They are two different problems. You will need tomcpscan the computer to get the codes for the check engine light. You will need a higher end scan tool to look at GEM module data to determine which door switch is stuck and reporting a false open door.

My cargo and interior lights wil;l not go off on my 2002 F-150 I need to lnow what fuse it is or fuses?????


This is usually caused by the door ajar switch not making contact.
The door switch is part of the door latch on the F-150.

Liberally spray the door latch with WD-40, close and open a few times. Repeat this process 3 or 4 times, and check the interior lights / door ajar indicator on the cluster.

There are pictures of where to spray in a sticky in the Electrical forum on F150online.com if you need them. This is a somewhat common problem, to get dirt and gunk in the door ajar switch, causing the contacts to stay open.

Not a regular cab but Lariat F-150 Supercrew 2003 , the inside and the cargo lights stay on when the truck is shut down ,and now I notice the auto locking doors are not working when you touch the brake...


Is the door ajar light in the cluster illuminated ?

Could be the door ajar switch ( part of the door latch ) is gummed up, and needs to be WD-40 sprayed into it, and close open the doors a few times, and repeat.

The autolock uses the same input, to know to lock the doors when you press the brake pedal while moving.

Don't know what to do with the adhesive except to carefully remove with a long screwdriver, putty knife, etc. However, before you do that you should remove the screws in the door handle crevice. The two lower screws seem to come loose on their own so I replaced with one size larger stainless. The upper screws by the door handle are critical to remove the panel AND to secure it...
