Asked by Apr 24, 2011 at 10:09 AM about the 2011 Ford E-Series Passenger E-150 XLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everytime I open the van door, the outside parking lights turn on and stay lit for approx. 20 seconds.  As I camp frequently with this vehicle, and open and close the doors repeatedly, I want to avoid a dead battery.  Is there a way to disengage these lights without disconnecting battery terminal??

Thanks for your reply. I'm taking the van back to the dealer to see if they have any input. I can verify that I've had a dead battery three times already while camping with repeatedly opening the van doors so it's something that I'd like to see if a fix can be found. I read in another forum for F-150's that there is a procedure to disengage perimeter lighting. Thinging it may work also son E-150's, I tried it but it doesn't work on E-150's.

check for an auto light control on the dash, usually on the left of the steering column. It is an auto delay for your lights. turn it off & the lights should go out when you close the door.
