Try spraying wd40 or any type of rust penetrant inside the door latches. The switches stick from dirt and will eventually free up. Spray the latch then open and close each door sevearl times. May take a couple tries. Good luck.

Interior lights won't shut off


An on/off switch that controls your lights is stuck in the closed position. Slamming hatch unhinges it and returns it to open position where lites turn off. U have a few of those switches - at least one for each door.

My interior lights come on at random, while parked and sometimes while driving. I noticed today that the alarm does not activate when this happens while it is parked and the interior lights are on.


Each door has a switch on the door opening that turns the light on when it is open, one of them is faulty or the door is not closing it.

1998 ford taurus driver window won't go up, I got it up then I hit the inside door panel to get it in place now the window is stuck down again, what doI do?


First, Push the window button that corresponds with the window that is stuck. Slam the door. Jostles the bushings that probably have dried up grease. Then window begins to work again. Second, try taking off the door panel. Once the door panel is off, connect a test light to the harness side of the connector and try the switch in both positions. If it lights up in both switch positions, circuit to motor is fine, and motor is the problem. Sometimes the motors can be fixed, sometimes not.

Interior lights stay on


The door switches for these supply ground contact to turn the lights on so this would indicate that either one of the switches has failed (come apart) or somewhere along the line one of these leads is rubbed through or pinched and providing random contact to chassis ground.
