battery drain from door.

Hey guys my dad's e99 with 367000 miles is constantly dying in the yard due to the door not turning off the overhead and bed light. It is a supercab and the door shuts completely with no crack. I figure the switch is bad or wore out due to the mileage and age. Problem is I can't find it on the door anywhere. How can I turn the lights off without taking out the bulbs? Is there a way to disconnect this switch so that the lights only come on when you scroll the wheel on the headlight panel? Thanks for the help

The switch is mounted on the power window regulator of my old 02 F250. It is a pain to get to. I think its a common problem. Mine would automatically go out after 15 minutes though.
