ok guys, these seems to be a fairly easy problem, but its kinda weird.

my girlfriend has a 97 taurus, and the car seems to think a door is open and such, when it really isnt. the "door open" picture on the dash is constantly on, the dome light, you can set it to "off", "on", or "door", and it will be on constantly if you set it to "door". Also, the lamps on the floor will always be on (but i hoped down there and pulled out the bulbs).

so what do you guys suspect the problem is??

I had this problem on my '97 Sable.
The problem was sticking door lock latches. It was terribly annoying especially when driving late at night... suddenly the interior lights would come on, etc....

Just spray some WD40 in and around each door latch mechanism and give the doors a good workover, opening and closing a number of times....

Hopefully this will solve your problem, it did mine!
