one of the switches is stuck in the door latch try spraying the door latches with lots of good penatrating oil (not wd 40 ) slam the doors sevral times till the light gos out dont forget the rear door now you can take it to the dealer and they can tell you witch door it is causing this problem but they want $$$$$ now also the switch is replaceable but iy is a lot of work dont woory about the lights killing the battery as they will turn off in 5 to 10 min
The switches are FAMOUS for sticking. The easiest thing to do is spray (I mean HOSE) the latch in the door with penetrating oil and repeatedly close and open the door, like 20 times, this may get the switch working again. It will be hard to tell which switch is indeed stuck, unlless you really pay attention, and note which door you are working on when the light does go out.
Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.
