Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
Fog lights and interior lights are on even when the truck is shut off. The fog light on/off switch does nothing. I can turn the interior lights off with the switch.
I would assume a short or bad relay but not sure where to start looking.
Any ideas would be helpful.
Reference your owners manual for relay location, if you do not have one you can download it at www.fleet.ford.com , the relay for the fog lights should be under hood in power distribution box, ford relay are notorious for hanging up in closed and open positions, pull the relay and see if the lights go out? if so replace relay, try the same for interior lights, that relay should be inside in the fuse box. hope this helps, let me know

Open the hood and remove the electrical plug from the back of the fog light ballast below the headlight assembly.
Turn the fog lamp counterclockwise to unlock it from the fog light housing.
Insert the new fog lamp. Align the notches on the fog lamp housing with the tabs on the new bulb and turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the housing.
Reconnect the fog lamp electrical plug.
