The door sensor is an integral part of the door latch mechanism.

The sensor cannot be replaced independent of the latch. A sensor

appears on each of the four doors, as well as the tailgate. WD40

sprayed on the sensor sometimes frees it up (you must remove the

interior door panels to access -- it's part of the latch and

difficult to see because it's well hidden inside the door), but

just as often, WD40 won't cure it. You can also remove the 15Amp

fuse in position 14 in the box located beneath the driver's side of

the dash. This will disable the interior lights as well as the

running board lights (good), but it also disables the power windows

(bad). This will, however, solve the problem of the lights

remaining on after the doors are shut and running down your

battery. The only true fix is the replace the affected latches.

They sell for approx. $55 on the Web, and unless you're

mechanically inclined, and very patient, you should have the dealer

do it for you (expensive). Malfuntioning door sensors are a very

common problem on Expeditions, Explorers and Windstars.
