HELP Just bought a 02 ccsb....Has some problems!!

Just brought home another 7.3 truck that I lucked up and got for $12,000!!! It does have some minor issues I will be addressing this weekened(with y'alls help,of course!!!) 1st off,My radio and the lights for the window switches don't turn off when I turn off the ignition and open the door.Even after I get out of the truck and shut the door,they are still on.I did notice the next morning when I went out to check and see if the batteries were dead, that they were off and it started??? Another issue is a dash light that stays on the entire time while the truck is running.It is red and looks like a 4 door car.What the heck is this light?Is it the door ajar light?I'm assuming its related to my above issues but I'm not sure......Lastly,None of my door locks move when I press either switch lock or unlock.I'm gonna check the fuse first but which fuse is it and if that's not the problem,what do I check next??
Thanks for reading and any advice is really appreciated!!!!
Pics coming as soon the sun comes up!!!

your interior lights are staying on and that dash light is probably a door ajar light. these trucks are notorious for their door latches sticking/not working correctly. There is a write-up somewhere for fixing/replacing, but I had a similar problem with one door once, so I just WD-40 all my latches and slammed my doors a bunch of times until the latch worked itself out. And it hasn't been a problem since lol

Yep, they need lubing, there is no plunger like in other vehicles, it is in the latch itself. Use a light weight oil to free her up, then I use some white lith grease. I have had to use PB Blaster to free some up, just so you know.

It isn't a fuse, the lights are working so why would you check the fuse? It is what is telling them to stay on? Answer: The latch, so keep lubing it and opening and closing the door until they shut off. Could be any door. The lights will shut down after a period of time as a built in default so you don't drain the batteries, IIRC it is around 10 min.

Yep, spray the heck out of them and they should start working.

Do the door locks make any noise when you hit the button? You can usually hit the lock button and hear them try to move. Most times the lock actuators get weak and have to be replaced.

Sorry bud, I didn't read your entire post. The problem with the door locks is the actuators, another common problem. There is a aluminum foil fix, but I don't recommend this. Fix it right and replace the actuators, the new ones are much stronger and more reliable. I had to do all 4 of mine in 2003 and they are still running strong.

Oh I also don't recommend mickey mousing the generic actuators for $10 and hacking into a perfectly good harness. The last ones I bought were $43 each from Official Ford Parts Site | Buy Motorcraft & OEM Ford Parts Online | FordParts.com

Agreed, I've had to do this to quite a few trucks. Stick with the OEM actuators. You'll be pissed if you have to do it again because the actuators are a little tricky to get to.
