04 king ranch now what can it be?!?!?

I got this 40 f350 in January, have already dealt with a no start issue. Turned out to be a wire next to a battery. NOW only 1,000 miles later I have problems like I have never believed!

So here it is, I assume the windshield leaks a little and I'm a problem with te interior lights either working or not working when I turn the truck off. The radio will stay on when the key is out and door is open. But I can get it to turn off if I hold the brake. If everything is off and I hit the auto lock on my key ring the radio will come back on.

When I start the truck with the door open the interior lights don't come on no door chime and the door ajar light isn't on. But once I step on the brake everything works again.

I took the gem module out from behind the dash and there is no corrosion. I have heard of water on the door sill and wires corroding at splices. I redid two near the kick panel are there more going back to the brake lights? ( splices that is)
I'm no expert on diesels but ford I'm not foriegn too. I don't want take it somewhere but I'm getting close now! Need help bad!

With all your describeing I would suspect the light module and probably the cluster module either corrosion or the modules got wet and are freaking out. Giveing voltage internally where it shouldn't when it shouldn't. Moisture and electronics just don't get along.

I would also suggest pulling the harness plug where it goes thru the firewall and checking for corrision. Shoot a little electronic contact cleaner in both sides the plug to dry out any moisture.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink
