That's a great start. Where near the door handle (inside or out) and what does it look like. I'm just looking for some more detail before I tear into the door. I've removed most of a door before while installing the new speakers in my truck.
Thanks for the help J-C.

I think we had a thread that details this subject because a few members were having trouble with theirs sticking in the on position. The topic was interior light stays on. I think the fix was spraying some cleaner in the hole in the door. Try searching for it. It was only a few weeks back.

I did a search and found the WD-40 fix. I'm going to try that first and then go with replacing the part. At $14 it might be worth the better to replace it for a more permanent fix.

Thanks for the help.

Angry

Got the switch put in. It seems to be fixing all of the problems.
If this problem happens to you and the WD-40 thing doesn't fix it? Take it to the dealership. DON'T TRY THIS YOURSELF unless you are a trained mechanic or a contortionist. We had to eventually have the Ford garage put the actuall switch in and we pulled all of the parts off to get to it and put them back on.

door switch

i have the same problem with my 1998 f150. i was wondering how far you actually got towards replacing it before you actually took it to the dealer. would you happen to know how they got the switch out and in? i can't seem to fit my hand between the door so i'm boggled as to how to do it.
