It is designed to stay on. It will not drain your battery.
The alternator is failing.
You will have to disconnect the battery for 10 seconds or more to reset the computer, then reconnect the battery and check if the light is off and remains off , if the light comes back on I would take to mechanic and have it scanned for trouble codes.
Very likely an alternator problem; if the alt is not working soon the battery would be drained and the truck would shut off.
The door ajar light might stay on in a Mercury Mountaineer if a door is not shut properly. Sometimes a door will seem like it is shut, but will not be shut enough to trip the light off. Check for dirt or other debris in the door latch for all doors.

No it will not
The voltage reg is sticking and will run down the battery.

Go to the dealership and have a key made. The key has a chip in it that turns the light off. If you are just using a duplicate the light will stay on.

the problem is in your high beam switch. there is a short in it and it needs to be replaced
If it is to get it inspected... Unplug the battery... Then drive for 100 to 150 miles... Get inspected then, codes should be off..
It should be on a delay and shut off after 10-20 minutes.
you possibly have something draining the battery when the car is shut off, with the car shut off pull the positive cable off the battery and then just touch the cable to the positive post of the battery and see if you get a spark, if you get a spark you have something electrical draining the battery.
take the battery off and then fix the light swish
The computer's power, or its ability to stay powered on and running, is maintained by the charge in the battery. The battery's electricity is used by the computer to keep running. If there is no charge in the battery, or the battery is removed, the computer will shut off and will not be able to be powered up.
Why would battery light come on then go off
You don't want to do that. If your cars check engine light is on, you need to get it examined by a mechanic. Also, if you disconnect any battery terminal, your engine will not start or power any electronics while it is running.
