Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.I apologize for any delay.
Did this issue just now start to occur or has it been like this since you have owned the vehicle?
Let me know,thanks Pete
O.k.,some models are set up to illuminate these lights on key on or engine running.There should be a light sensor on the dash or interior mirror that can fail in some cases and will cause these lights to be on all of the time even in the bright sunlight.If the lights are coming on like this even when the vehicle is in an area that is well lit this can be a faulty light sensor at fault needing replaced.Unfortunately my info does not show where this sensor is located.A parts store or dealer can usually tell you where this sensor is located so it can be replaced.It will send an incorrect signal on how much light it sees and causes this fault here.
Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.A 5 star rating is appreciated.Thanks Pete
Yes it can.The sensor can send a false signal that it is dark out and can turn on the head lights and park lights as if it was night.I have seen this type of sensor fail in the past before needing replaced for this issue here.
They don't show an ambient light sensor at all even in the mirror assembly?
O.k.,then the only other reason these would turn on with the key on or engine running is it being programmed to operate this way.I have seen several models operate this way with the computers turning on these lights with the key on or engine running as it was designed to do.If you have another model that is the same check it and see if it acts the same way as I suspect it will with it being normal.
If it does not act the same then what needs to be done is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool/computer plugged into this vehicle to see what codes are set in all computers in your vehicle then any codes set need diagnosed to then locate and repair this fault.
The only other issue this could be is an internal fault with a body or light ecu needing replaced.But I have seen several models that are designed to light these lights normally with the key on or engine running.
Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time,this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5 star rating is appreciated
