    Inside the door latch is where the switch is located, open the doors and spray the latches good with WD-40 then close and open each door several times to free sticking switches. Tip; roll drivers window down or take the keys out of the car and put them in your pocket! Just in case.

    If lubing the switches doesn't correct the problem a tech with the Ford IDS scan tool can see individual switch inputs and determine which circuit is acting up which saves a lot of manual labor trying to locate the problem.
