Hope your well... I had the same problem with the door ajar light. After taking everything apart and no luck. An Old Timer Mechanic told me to spray WD-40 on the door jams and locking device guess what it works. Almost a month know and it still works. ... Al52269
Could also have a bad realay in your fuse box.
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?
the fuse that controls the interior lights, running board,an rear wiper is blown. it is a 15amp fuse in the panel. Also,try the cluster dimmer position since it controls the running board lights and exterior mirror lights as well.This dimmer is located next to the headlight switch.Good luck!
I had the same problem. On my 1998 Ford Expedition XLT. Spray WD-40 on all the door jams. This should take care of problem.
They probably aren't grounded.
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.
You get under the running boards right under the lights. there is a little plastic housing. pull this housing down and change light bulb is that easy.
check your fuses
I'm not a mechanic / technician but i was looking at the 2001 Ford Expedition Owner Guide and it shows : In the Power Distribution Box ( which is " live " ) located in the engine compartment on the drivers side of the engine compartment ( fuse # 15 is a red color 10 amp mini fuse for the running board lamps )
The door switches are located inside the door locks. If your having any problems with them. for example your interior lights / running board lights exc, are staying on . spray some WD-40 on all the door jams including the rear door hatch and glass. this should take care of problem.
Where is the 1994 JEEP grand cherokee Daytime Running Lamps Lights Module? Lights are working but the running lights and dash board lights are out.
I had the same problem on my 1998 Ford Expedition XLT. Spray some WD-40, in all the door jams including the hatch / back door. This should take care of problem.
could be the alternator is about to go out
on the left side of dash board there is a little buttom push it in it will pop out turn it to either brighten dim on turn on interior lights
Check your owners manual. If you don't have one copy & paste this link. http://www.genuineservice.com/genuineservice/en/gloveboxresults
under the hood on the driver side there is a fuse box at the very rear if u don't look hard u will miss it cause it is small but u will see one fuse box there but look a little further back to see the other fuse box
You may have a pull on your batt, or a surge.
the door ajar switch is Incorporated into each door latch if you have a problem with the door ajar light staying on along with the interior and running board lights spray each latch including the back glass and door latches and open and close each door several times this should fix the problem good luck
== == 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
I experienced this problem when I first brought my used '98 Expy home. I searched Ford Forums and found that the latches seem to get stuck in either of the doors (i.e. drivers. passenger and hatch) I sprayed W40 on the inside opening of the door latches and in the actual latch itself and slammed my door several times and to my delight, the lights went out (interior and running board as well.

If you go to the parts store they will tell you, and since your there you can also buy them.
Your daytime running lights (DRL) are on.
run a wire from battery positive to an inline fuse, then to a switch that you have to install in your dash. from the switch to the lights, then to ground. turn on switch, lights should work.
Yes, your tail lights will go out when your dash board lights go out.
Need to know what about the dash board lights.
They should come on automatically when the vehicle is in operation. If they're not, you might have an electrical problem. If your vehicle is a U.S. vehicle and you want daytime running lights, you must purchase a daytime running lights (drl) module for about $50. and place it in the fuse area off the driver's side dash. Remove the hi beam module and then find someone with a Jeep/Chrysler computer that can flash your computer board and change the country code to Canada and voila, you will have daytime running lights.
