Question about 2002 Mercury Mountaineer

2003 Mountaineer courtesy lights are stuck on

My 2003 Mountaineers interior courtesy lights and exterior side mirror lights will not shut off.  I have checked all doors.  Also, the warning "bing" when you put your key in the ignition will not shut off unless you start the car.  Normally it will shut off when you close the door or it will not "bing" at all if the doors are closed and you are starting the car.  Do you have any suggestions for me? Thank you, Lisa

    Wish that the solution was that easy.  I am inclined to think that it may be a short.

2008 ford explorer light control module


Hi Rich , what lights are you talking about ? Exterior Lighting , Interior Lighting ? It doesn't matter All lights are controlled by SJB smart junction box ! An you can't just stick in a used one , It will need to be programmed ! Interior Lighting The interior lighting system consists of the following components:
  • Smart junction box (SJB)
  • Dimmer control switch
  • Interior/map lamps
  • Cargo lamp
  • Glove compartment lamp
  • Vanity mirror lamps
  • Door ajar switches
  • Puddle lamps
The interior lighting system consists of 2 subsystems:
  • Courtesy lamps
  • Demand lamps
The courtesy lamps are controlled by the SJB. The courtesy lamp subsystem consists of the interior dome lamps, the puddle lamps and the overhead console lamps (if equipped). The SJB supplies voltage to the courtesy lamps when the SJB receives the required input.
The demand lamps are controlled by the SJB. The demand lamps subsystem consists of the glove compartment lamp, all map/reading lamps, and the left and right vanity mirror lamps.
The SJB supplies power to the interior lighting system. The SJB will set DTCs if certain circuit failures exist with the interior lighting system.
Exterior Lighting Headlamps
The headlamp system is a dual-beam pattern system. It consists of a low and high beam, with a replaceable bulb. The headlamp assembly has the park/turn indicator lamp integrated into the headlamp assembly. The smart junction box (SJB) supplies voltage to the headlamps when demanded.
Principles of Operation
The SJB receives inputs and delivers outputs to a majority of the electronically-controlled features of the vehicle. The SJB constantly monitors the systems under its control and reports a concern in the form of a DTC. The DTC can be retrieved with a scan tool through the medium speed controller area network (CAN) communication network.
NOTE: Prior to the removal of the SJB, it is necessary to upload the module configuration information to the diagnostic tool. This information must be downloaded to the new SJB after installation. For additional information, refer to Section 418-01 .

The dome lights on the rear mirror and ceiling lights will not turn off when you shut the car off


This is a problem caused by a sticking door ajar/courtesy light switch. The switch signal goes to the BCM (body control module) and that turns on the interior lights. Since each door has this switch you need to have the dealer use a special tool to scan the module inputs from the door switches and see which door switch is causing the lights to stay on.

2003 lincoln navigator lights on rearview mirror will not shut off, killing the battery.


If you mean the outside rearview mirrors, they have a courtesy light called a puddle light. And if not working, you may have the interior overhead light turned off on its selector switch.
Usually this is caused by the rear hatch or rear tailgate window not being fully closed. Some models may have an extra courtesy switch in the rear cargo area that is intended for "picnic" mode and overrides the automatic shutoffs.
There is suppose to be a battery "minder" which is suppose to keep the battery from discharging when lights are left on. You may need a dealer to explain why this feature has not worked.

Door Ajar message comes up even when all of the stores are shut. Interior Lights and Lights on side view mirrors stay on. Lights can be shut off but the Door Ajdar message remains on.


I have this same problem. A mechanic friend told me that basically the grease they use to grease the door latches cause a sensor to think the door is open. He said to buy something thtat will break up this stuck grease, but also has lubricating effects. I forgot what he told me to buy though.

My side mirros dont work


The exterior mirrors:
  • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
  • are of a foldaway design.
  • may contain turn signal indicators.
  • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
  • may have a programmable recall memory option.
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Exterior Mirror Operation
The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.
