Sounds like a stuck relay. The relay is usually a little black box that plugs into the fuse box. Check your owner's manual under "fuses and circuit breakers". It should show you a diagram of what fuse does what and any relays that plug into the fuse box. HTH. -Jim

The Windstar uses Modules (aka processors) to control the lights in the rear and front of the vehicle. The Rear Electronics Module as it's called, is located beneath the jack on the right rear of the cargo area. It also controls the power door locks for the right front, sliding door and rear hatch as well as the fuel gauge. The relays for this system are always hot with the key on and the module supplies ground to operate the lights. About $400 for the module so make sure that's what it is before you plop down that kind of cash.
