Under the dash on the drivers side there should be some relays (black square). Check your manual for where the interior light relay is. The problem is most likely the sensor on the sliding door. Good Luck.

2003 Ford Windstar if you turn your headlight switch to off your battery dies If you leave the switch in the auto position everything seems OK Can somebody tell you why?

The headlamp switch on the windstar does not actually switch the lamps. It is a signal input to the instrument cluster computer. The cluster module actually controls all lights individually. It sounds as if there may be a problem in the instrument cluster. This could be a bad module or simply a corrupted program. It will probably need a mechanic with a diagnostic computer and the programming skills to understand what it is telling him / her. Carl

Windstar interior lights wont go on?

One thing that will cause this is when a door-ajar warning goes without fixing.My Windstar rear hatch showed as ajar for quite some time - after a period, this caused the interior lights to be disabled.Flooding the hatch latch mechanisms with spray lubricant, i.e., WD-40, cleared the false ajar warning, and the interior lights automatically starting working again.See "Related Questions" below for more
