I have a 2001 ford mustang v-6 that the dome light will not go out when the doors are closed and the key is out ?

My 02 Mustang's light was still on because of the door ajar button. Open the door look at the latch. The latch that goes up and down has a door ajar button hiding near this. It can be hidden by a rubber covering on the side of it. Or you can take the door inner door cover off and try to squirt some oil into the door ajar. You can try oiling it and work it back and forth. Also on the the latches sometimes they dip them in plastic. Mine was loose and would not let the door shut properly. So that was another problem with the light being on. I cut off the pieces that were jamming the latch up.

Sounds like the door latch is not returning to the closed position.

Just bought a used 2004 Excursion and the interior lights stay on until the battery wears down. would that be a bad roller switch for interior lights and dash lights?

Well, the lights on our 1998 Ford Taurus stay on for a 'limited' amount of time, say 20 minutes and automatically turn off, even if the door is left open or if the glove box light is left on due to a door left open.

I wonder if your body control computer is faulty in your 2004 Excursion?
Or, if the body control computer is fine, and it doesn't have this feature, then I would see if the door latch switch needs to have wd-40 sprayed on it.

We have a 1999 Ford Expeditioin that had this problem with the door open light going on when the door was actually closed. The tech sprayed wd-40 on the locking mechanism and the problem went away.

Courtesy lights on the mirror do not always shut off after a period of time like they should. Is there a relay or a switch that I need to be looking at?

I would check the wiring located between the drivers door and the body. Pull back the black accordian style rubber hose to access the wiring. Pull on the wires in the harness one at a time and you are likely to find that one of the larger black wires is broken. I have seen this many times on the explorers. Also try spraying WD-40 into all the door latches to unstick the door latch switches.
Hope this helps!

When i close the door on my 95 chevy corsica it doesnt close. it just bounces back. please help im a girl and my parents dont know so use small simple words please.

I think what has happened is that the door latch (the one in the door) has somehow closed and won't let the door shut normally.
Here's how it works. The door latch consists of two major parts. One is the short, round metal tube thing that is attached to the car body about halfway up where the door shuts. Inside the door there is a latch in a slot that lines up with round metal tube thing when you shut the door. I think what has happened is the latch has closed, not allowing the door latch to slide over the metal tube thing and close completely. If you look at the latch in the door slot you'll (hopefully) see what I mean. Now how to fix it.
You'll need a medium to large screwdriver and maybe some help from a friend. First, lift the outside door handle like you are going to open the door. Hold it up. Then, with the screwdriver, push the latch in the door slot UPWARD until it clicks and latches.
It is difficult to put this in words but it usually is an easy fix. No damage done to your car (unless you REALLY slammed the door hard numerous times..).
Please re-post with any questions.

Why is my focus acting up? Even though the driver door is closed, the indicator alarms. Sometimes the wiper comes on by it self and such crazy stuff.

On the door latch attached to the car body, the switch for the alarm is right behind the hook that the door locks on to. It should be covered in black rubber. While the key is in the car, press this switch in, wiggle it around, and see if it stops "alarming". It's possible this switch has been damaged and needs replacement.

How does the door open warning switch work on a ford focus

there are switches in the latch pin in the door jamb, the switches are not in the door like most fords. if you look at where the door latch meets the striker you will see a rubber sleeve if you push it you will see it goes in and out. that is you door open switch, when door closes it removes ground going to the GEM or body module. when door opens switch is grounded and thn lights come on

1993 Ford Explorer, Driver side door does not close good

you need to adjust what is called the striker located on the actual vehicle body
looks like a round piece of metal sticking out with a star head in it called a torx head
move the stricker out towards the latch on the door a little not too muck or the door will not seal all the way when shut
