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 accessturn off the engine and put the alarm the dome - icon1.png 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

SOURCE: door open light &dome light stay on

Hello, Friend

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.

Thank you

SOURCE: When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on

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.

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.

SOURCE: Ford f150 crew cab 2004...what controls radio and

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.

    My 2009 Ford Escape remote starter....i click and it beeps once..then beeps three times. Will not start or turn over engine. What does this mean or is there quick fix?.....been working good for 3 yrs.

    By some strange reason it happens also if the instrument panel dim light is all way up and you have to keep your dome light switch off or it will light even if all doors are shut. I put the dim light switch into normal position and my remote starter resumed its function! Thanks to F150 forum, I found this remedy there: 2010 REMOTE START

    Have a 93 cadillac fleetwood, changed key cilinder and computer, but pass key fault light still comes out and does not let engine turn on.

    The security system is keeping the engine from starting. In order to manually learn the security, you should try the following. With a fully charged battery, and all accesories, including headlamps, and dome lamp off, turn the key on, crank the engine for a second, then release the key. Leaving the ignition on for ten miniutes, the security light will shut off. turn the key off, back on, then repeat. This needs to be done 3 times, after 30 mins, try starting the engine. It should have relearned, and start up. Good

    Car alarm went off reset went off again within 3 min had tomanual lock , dome light on while driving

    it sounds like you have a door open that is why the light is on. it may not be a actual open door but a faulty door ajar switch. that would explain why the alarm keeps going off. i would start by opening and shutting all doors includingthe hood and hatch.
    if that does not fix it-a gm dealer with a tech 2 scanner should be able to located which door ajar switch is bad.
