Interior lights and "door open"warning staying on.

Just picked up my new-to-me 2002 Excursion Limited. I noticed the red "door open" warning on the dash staying on, and the interior lights stay on for quite a while when I get out and close her down. A mechanic buddy of mine says there is a "pin switch" inside the doors that is prone to fail on the Super Duties. Can anyone relate to this?

Yes my 99 does this when it gets in the mood. Hasn't been doing it lately

If the dinger isn't dinging all the time then its one of the other three doors.

The siwtch is in the latch, so you have to replace the entire latch once you locate the one thats your issue

Most (if not all) Fords use the same door latch so there somewhat easy to come across.

If you squirt wd-40 on all the door latches the metal things that spin around on the posts to hold the door shut it should work. Especially on the rear barn doors and hatch on the Excursions.
