Question about 2000 Mercury Sable
My dome light turns on randomly while car is off. I've tried locking, unlocking, opening and closing doors, turning car on then off, turning meritorious lights on then off. Any dead?
Door latch has a sensor in it. possible one of the sensors is bad. door panel must be removed for inspection. disconnect each sensor until you find which one is causeing your problem.

i would hazard a guess and say that wires in the rubber boot from the door pilar to the door are damaged or the connection block in the door pillar in this the terminals are corroded or something similar

Sounds like there is a loose ground wire inside the door panel, but the doorjam switch should be what determines the off and on. It is located in the doorjam.
Sometimes the wiring that goes through the doorjam can hide a broken wire inside. There are more connections in the drivers door because it is the Master location for all the other locks and windows.
Go to Autozone.com for wiring diagrams for free. Just register your car and you can get chassis diagrams to show where the wires are for that circuit.
If you are going to fool around with the wiring, disconect the battery first. The only big thing is the controls for the outside mirror can make the removal of the door a little more difficult.
