Angry Problems with AutoLamp Feature

The auto lamp feature on my truck has stopped working and will not come back on. I looked through the fuse panel underneath the steering wheel and I am not sure if I am looking for the right fuses because there isn't a spot for any fuses for the auto lamp feature. Has anybody else had this problem? Also, my door ajar light came on and will not turn off. Even with all of the doors completely shut. Now when I turn my truck off and open the door, the radio doesn't turn off automatically anymore. My interior lights wont even come on when I open the doors. Am I having major electrical failure, or is there a solution to this madness?!

Fix for this problem

It is the VSM. (Vehicle security module). I had EXACT symtoms as yours on my 2002 F-350, dealer charges hour labor to diagnois it, about a buck fifty for part and hour to program it.. Believe me I did all the door switch chasing etc. This is what fixed it!! I had door ajar light on, radio staying on, interior light only working manually, no auto headlamps, and of course dead batterys.. It is located behind cupholder/radio area... Good luck. Pictured on profile is my 2000..

I had the same problem in my F150...and the solution was a bit more simple (read it on F150online.com) they said just lube up the door latch with some WD40, not too much but a fair amount. It worked wonders, no problems after that, just do the passenger door (and back doors if its a CC) along with the drivers door. Its worth a shot before you spend all that money...just my 2 cents!

P.S. make sure you leave the door open so the excess runs out of the drain hole at the bottom, AND make sure your window is up!
