The running board and interior lights on my 2000 Ford Excursion stay on (until they drain the battery) after I exit the vehicle.

When I first get in the vehicle, the lights come on as they should, but do not turn off after a time period. However, once you reach a certain speed (15 mph I think) they turn off.

Is there a timer somehwere that may have gone bad? Also, where are the "plungers" or do open sensors? I'm guessing they are internal as part of the hinge.

Try this cure, buy a can of brakekleen and a can of spray white lithium grease, spray the latch area, thats the claw in the door where it closes, spray liberally with brakleen, open and close the door 5-6 times, repeat, then spray with the white lube, open and close the door 5-6 times. Reapeat on all doors.
