Question about 2001 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

I own a 2001 FordExpedition. My running board lights and my interior lights will not turn off once my truck has been turned off. I have tried sraying with wd 40. I would like to know what else I can do to get them to go out and stay out before I have to buy a new battery.

Hi, the two most common causes for this problem are the ignition switch and the GEM module. A quick test for the switch is to wiggle it back and forth and see if the lights go out. If they stay on then you will need to replace the GEM module.

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Next to the headlight switch is a dimmer dial for the interior dash lights... if you turn it all the way up, the interior lights remain on... there is a "detent" on the dimmer. turn the interior dash lights all the way full on ...you'll feel the detent, then turn it down back past the detent a little bit...that should cancel the interior courtesy lights... wait a bit because the interior lights are sometimes on delay timers....
good luck let me know what happens.

High Beam Indicator blinking


My lights have had this problem for months. From time to time I try to fix it, but I have learned the following:

1. [EASY SOLUTION] After turning off the car and turning off the headlights, when I pull the headlight switch back (toward me) and then let go, the running lights turn off. [/EASY]

Extra information that I haven't figured out how to use yet:

2. Apparently the DRL bulbs operate through the high-beam bulbs; this is why you get the high-beam light when the DRLs are broken (or whatever) and why you can turn them off with the high-beam switch.

3. My wife took the car out for a fluid change once and said the mechanic pointed at a light on the car and said, "that bulb's out," and that if she fixed it the DRL's would work normally, but she forgot which light it was. He even told her what bulb it needed. I took it to the same place and no one knew what I was talking about.

I don't think about trying to fix this very often since I realized I could turn the lights off with the high-beam switch. I used to worry that that blinker was somehow draining the battery, but it never has (whereas I once drained a brand new battery just by leaving the interior light on all night). I hope I've helped!
