    Well after a few months of living with the problem. Finally got around to buying a switch and installing. Motivation was fact that local ford's were asking 90$ for part, scored new one on ebay for 19.99$ plus 9$ shipping. Was a steal, no one else bid. Part # 98AZ-11572-A or SW-6343.



    The Problem i was having, was that every time i hit a large bump or pothole (and god knows we have our share of those here in Quebec) the interior lights would come on. I would have to wiggle my key to get lights to go off. Even just hitting the steering column would trigger it. All good now.



    Here are a few pic. This was a really simple job.



    First off. Disconnect the battery for about 15mins to discharge the SRS system





    Switch and instructions

    ....I dealt with the dome light for months before I pin-pointed the problem and had to do this same exact repair.... Nice write-up
