Customer Question
The internal light is...

The internal light is stay on and takes at lest 30 mins to turn off after all the doors are shut and also the electric mirrors aren't working and has power going to the switch and out of it. Could the mean the bum needs replacing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the door switches?

Fuses are good and have unplugged the door switch still no different

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your MINI?

Mimi? It's a Ford F-250 2001 model with the 4.2L turbo diesel motor in it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had an auto electrician look at it and he is thinking bcm but he doesn't know the Ford f series to well

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nah that is pretty much it

If you are satisfied with your answer, please take a moment to rate my service before you go. Experts are not compensated without a positive rating. Providing a rating does not close the question, you can reply or ask additional questions without incurring further charges. Rating my answer positive charges your account the full question value and credits me. Submitting for a refund removes the credit from my account and makes me donate my time and experience for free, which is not my intention. Please only rate positive if you are satisfied and intend on paying for the services you agreed to. Thanks!
