Re: door pin/ dome light
Had same problem with my f-250. The underdash box that dings when you leave your key in the ignition has more functions than just the dinger. It also controls the dome lights and seat belts alarm. It's about 4" square black box located under the center area of the dash. Just listen for that dam dinging noise to locate it. Unplug it. You no longer will have the ding, the seat belt warning and your dome lights will be off. Or, do without the dome light and remove the bulb.
Go get a new one at a parts store or a junk yard. My dome light had three bulbs, a reading light for each side and the bulb that turns on when the door opens. I took out the center dome light bulb. Never did get a new box. Everything worked except for the missing bulb that wouldn't turn off.
