I had a friend that had the same issue. I had the same issue with my 99 Bonneville the outside door handle and the door latch itself where sticking because of dirt or some other substance. I kept my car very clean and I also cleaned the door jambs after every wash, but still there was a sticking in the latch and handle.
I could be driving down the road and the lights would be on. and I would open the window (with the doors locked and flick the outside handle and the interior lights would turn off. then I knew it was the outside handle that had a censor that was sticking. Why does the out side handle even have a censor? Good question. It seems the more sophisticated our cars become the more probability of issues from the littlest things.

This is usually caused by the switches sticking in the door latches. Try spraying some WD40 in the latches and open and close the doors a bunch of times that should take care of it.

There is corrosion at the positive battery cable and the terminal is probably about to fall out of the battery. Clean battery terminals, replace bolts and spacer if applicable and recommend battery replacement

Are you sure that the thumb wheel switch beside the headlamp switch is not turned all the way up until it clicks?
If it is staying on for 10 minutes this means that the smart junction box is seeing a demand for the interior lights from something like a door ajar switch or the thumb wheel. If it sees that the igntion is in the off position it will turn the lights off after 10 minutes to conserve battery power.
Normal operation is:
The interior lighting delay feature provides temporary illumination of the courtesy lamps after the doors are opened and then closed. The interior lighting delay feature keeps the courtesy lamps on for a period of 25 seconds after all the doors are closed. If during the 25-second delay time the SJB detects that the ignition has been switched out of off, or if the vehicle is locked using the RKE, the courtesy lamp illumination is discontinued

you most likely have a bad door ajar switch- the door panel has to be removed to access it, its on the door latch- you can unplug them this will take care of the batt drain prob.as for the locks it may be a switch problem- most ford vehicles will not let you lock the vehicle from the driver's door when it's open to prevent locking the keys in.
