Either the bulb is out, or the door ajar switch, which is different than the dome light switch, is disconnected or inop. Door ajar switch is located inside the door attached to the latch mechanism. The usual problem with fords is the switch gets gummed up and the door ajar light stays on even when the door is closed.

I'm guessing they're the 194 bulbs found throughout the instrument lighting, but I've never had to replace one so don't take that as fact.
