If you have a defective button as in my case, the interior lights just stay on, on, on, on etc.

I don't have a keypad - standard lock and remote key fob. Someone told me there is a computer module in this car that is acting crazy. This car thinks it's a Christmas tree - 11 lights go on when you hit the remote after it's been parked. It has 15 lights all together, not counting the headlights . I'm still trying to understand how the lights could come on by themselves in the middle of the night. Ghosts?

Haunted Ford products

Seriously though, the GEM is probably your culprit. I'd assume an issue with the low current board that's kicking on relays when it shouldn't be. Go to a junkyard and grab a GEM from any 00-03 Taurus.
