Normally, you get that annoying high-pithced whine/beep when the lights are left on... all of a sudden it isn't working anymore. Any idea what the deal is? Thanks!

I too had these problems along with a few other various things. It was solved by dissconnecting my battery for quite some time. I forget exactly how long, perhaps a few hours...?

ok, it sounds like something is wrong with you door trigger. check on the inside of the door latch (on the car, not the door) there's that black looking thing, push on it and see if it moves. there's a chance that it's just stuck and needs moved around.

OKAY, before I go ahead and take this in, does anyone have any idea how to go about fixing it? I already tried playing with that black door trigger thingy, any other ideas? Thanks!!

First, confirm and make sure it is the door trigger.

You said "I just checked, the light does NOT come on... "

OK, does the light come on if you open the passenger door? It it does when you open the passenger door, but not when you open the driver side door, then it probably is the driver's door switch that is the problem.

I don't have my Focus here at the moment (someone else is driving it), so I cannot look at the door switch. But typically they are quite simple to replace.

If you are mechanically inclined, you can replace it yourself. An auto parts store should have replacement switch available for less than $10 (as a guess, maybe only $2-3), or, the dealer parts department can sell you one, probably for double the price from a place like NAPA.

If you are not mechanically inclined, you do not have to go to the dealer to get something like this fixed, as they are typically the highest priced service. For something simple like this, any auto repair shop should be able to fix it.
