sounds like an electrical problem most likely would be covered by the warrenty, my mom drives a 2001 sportage n her door light always came on n it was a wiring problem n the dealership had it fixed n was covered by the warrenty, your best bet is dont fuck wit those things unless you know a good amount bout em, there REALLY bitches to werk wit, as complex as the average female, but its most likely a blown relay er solenoid.

oh yeah n does the lights er ne of the electical acc. werk, i dont think its a battery er starter problem its a new fucking car. also if the battery is dead mabe its cuz she didnt close a door all the way n the interior light stayed on threw the night happened to my mom to, there jus shitty cars i guess.

the two side windows on the 2 doors curve 3 ways . ford has the exclusive rights to manufacture them , meaning that the only way to get them is from ford . for the 2 sides and the rear is $2500 its some times cheaper to replace the car as it is a tax write off fer the insurance people :cool:

It may be a bad connection of your battery cables. Even though they appear clean, try disconnecting them, cleaning them and reinstalling. That worked for me a bunch of times. One of them might even be loose. Tighten it.
