Electrical question 2003 Ford E-250

Asked by Apr 22, 2017 at 07:21 PM about the 2000 Ford E-150 STD Econoline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When all doors are closed,Dome light stays on. Security system thinks A door is open when I try to arm it. (Dome light is set to only be on when a door is open). I tested all the door pins. They all work. They all have power to them.
Is it likely that something is burnt out in the control box mounted in the cargo area behind drivers seat?

Dome lights are on when a ground is completed to the bulb /// so you could have a ground anywhere from the door to the bulb. I suspect one of the door switches is not breaking the ground
