    same problem as you. Your latch is sticking in the door use WD40 and spray inside the latch and this should help your problem

97 f150 dome and rear cargo lights stay on. how do i fix this

Chances are this is a case of a dirty door ajar switch, which is part of of the door latch.

The way to check ( fix ) this is to spray down the latch liberally and close open the door a few times.

It might take 2 or 3 cycles of this to get the door ajar switch to start working again.

There is a thread in the electrical forum at F150online that covers this, with pictures of where to spray the WD-40 if it is not clear.

This is generally a case of the door ajar switch in the door is not working correctly, and needs to be sprayed down really well with WD-40 and close open the door. Might need to do this 2 or 3 times to get it to work.

Some what common issue on the older trucks in the 97-03 MY range.

I have a 1995 Ford F150, Iwant to know how to Replace the dome light switch? my dome light stays on when I shut the door.

For the 97 and newer model year trucks, this is a case of needing to spray the door latch with WD-40, the contacts stopped working ( dirty / gummed up contacts ).

Not 100% sure this is the same on the 95 MY truck, but on the 97 and newer it took a few rounds of a good spray, close and open the door, good spray, repeat to get the contacts working again.

Worth a try, if the light does not shut off due to the door, I would say it is a problem with the door switch to the LCM ( Lighting Control Module - moved in the 97 + MY to the GEM ).

Door adjar warning light stays on. Dome and cargo light stays on.

You need to remove the door ajar sensors from the doors and clean and lube them. You must remove the interior door panel then remove the door latch. Then twist the switch out of the latch to work on it.

How do I remove the door panel on a Ford F250 Supercab. I'm trying to find the switch for the ''doors adjar' light which won't go off and subsequently keeps my dome and outside bed light on and draws down...

the door adjar switch is the problem. the cargo light stays on until 35mph, as well as the overhead dome light. i just took the bulb out of the dome light and dont worry about the cargo light. it stays on for 30 min after the truck is turned off if the switch didnt trip properly. it shouldnt cause any problems as long as your batteries are good. i havent replaced the switch yet but it should be on the part of the door by the latch. get the replacement part and do a visual I.D. when you get the panel off. then replace it. the sensor is only 14$

I have a 1998 Ford F150 no Dome lights and cargo lights

Hello. the wiring harness plug that goes into the relay panel just to the left of the brake pedal may be your culprit. . If you remove the cover of the relay panel and wiggle the wires in the big connection plug, you will likely find that your interior lights will flicker. I believe Ford had a recall on these wiring harnesses so contact a Ford dealer about that.
