This is typically an issue with a switch on one of the doors. Normally, it's a simple pin switch (much like you find on most refrigerators, that you can press to turn off the light). If the interior lights are not coming on when the "Door Ajar" indicator is illuminated, then I'd do a little deeper investigation. There is also a switch located inside the latch assembly on EACH door. There should be a wire connected to this switch. If it is disconnected it would cause the symptoms you are describing. The only way to check, though, is to pull the door panel off and visually inspect the connection. If any of the doors have been worked on lately check them first.

How to reset door ajar signal on Ford Freestar 2004 4.2 l Advance Trac SE?

The door ajar signal doesn't latch. If it doesn't go off with all the doors closed it means that one or more of the door switches is not properly sensing the closed door. This can happen if a switch is not properly installed or aligned, of course a switch could be defective or there could be wiring damage. Since the Freestar is just a renamed Windstar, the "Related Questions" below will be very helpful in diagnosing / fixing this common problem.
