== == Mine was tested and it was the back hatch I sprayed wd40 in it and slamed the door harder than normal and never had anouther problem with it If that didn't fix it check to make sure that the relay switch in the fuse box is good. Well, the WD40 worked great on our 1998 Ford Expedition. Sprayed all the doors and it has worked fine since. Wes Harris

What would make running board lights turn on when the door is opened and the key is put in the ignition but turn off once the truck is cranked?

I am not a mechanic, however as an electrician it sounds like the running board lights are wired to the same relay as the interior lights. To check this, simply crank the truck, leave all the exterior lights off, turn on the interior light, then walk around the truck and look at the running board lights. If they are on then turn the interior light off and the parking lights on, check to see if the running board lights come back on. Depending on the make and model of the truck, I could be way off in left field and this info may not apply. uuummmm.....programing?

Probably one of your door switches. These are the little nipple looking buttons that tell the truck when to turn on the lights (when you open the doors). You should be able to push it shut with your finger and see if there is still voltage going through the switch to tell which one is bad. There is no real short cut for this.
