When Doors Are Closed The Dome Light, Door Ajar Light, And Exterior Light Above Truck Bed Remain On. The Problem Has Been Recurring For The Last 3-4 Years. I Have Asked Different Repair Shops Concerning The Problem And Get Many Replies From Bad Door Switch, Bad Relay Switch To It’s A Recurring Problem With 1998fordf-150‘s And You Have To Live With It. The Lights Can Stay On For 1 Minute Or 30 Minutes, Occasionally I Have To Remove The Fuse. The Problem Seems To Occur Most Frequently When The Outside Temperature Goes From Cold To Warmer Weather. I Have Discussed The Problem With Other Owners And They All Seem To Have The Same Problem. It Is Especially Dangerous At Night Because Of The interior Light Remaining On. I Am Also Concerned With Wear On The Battery. I Feel This Is A Design Flaw And Manufacturer Should Take Care Of The Repair. *jb

It Started With Dome Light Staying On Constantly – So We Go Without A Dome Light And It Is Unsafe And Quite The Nusance. Next The Door Ajar Light Stayed On Constantly – Weather Seems To Play A Factor.*ak Next The Ignition Switch Chime Started Staying On Constantly When Keys Aren’t Even In The Ignition…again Weather Seems To Be A Factor. Initially Wiggling The Ignition Switch Would Sometimes Get The Chime To Stop But Now I Had To Remove The Gem Fuse(15) As It Was The Only Way To Get The Chime To Quit. I Haven’t Checked Yet What Else That Fuse Is Used For. It Seems That This Is A Problem For All F150 Owners – So ford Needs To Fix It!!!!
