Question about 2003 Ford Excursion
I have the same year and My windows,interior lights and radio stop working randomly, I was told by the dealer and mechanics that the problem is the accessory delay relay. It appears thatYou have to remove the right front inner fender plastic liner to access the horns. To get to the bolt that holds them you have to remove the battery and tray. To get to it, I looked it up and found it for about $9 when my mechanic and Ford wanted $80 and $25 I will try this myself and keep posted what happens

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.

I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.

It could be a bad contact on the slider door,(or any of the doors) but they were known for the slider door contact.

SOURCE: dome light keeps blowing fuses
Has your son added a non standard Radio (they usually do ) this modification may be your problem , check the wiring at dash, also i Pod or phone chargers plugged into cigarette lighter socket can be a problem. Bigger fuses should NEVER be substituted unless the original circuit rating has differed from original manufactures spec and suitable adjustments made ie Higher wattage H/lamps or added on acessories etc.

This can be one of 2 things.
1. The door ajar switch ( part of the door latch ) is gummed up and a good spraying of WD-40 can clean it out. Could take several times to cure the issue.
The other specific to New Body Style 04-08 MY F-150 :
2. There is a bad splice in the driver's side door sills. On the SUperCrew it is usually closer to the c-pillar on the rear door.
These are pictures of the 2 splice locations :
The splice is a 3 way splice ( 2 wires to 1 wire ) and covered in something that looks like hockey tape. The splice gets wet, and no longer wrks. You might have to go back further into the harness to find wire that is not discolored if this is the case. Takes quite a bit of time to find the splices, as there are a lot of wires in the door sill.
