Ford Falcon 1993: Interior light stuck on
The most likely cause is a switch that is not shutting off the power to the light. Most likely it is one of the switches in the door jams, so check them to make sure they are working by pushing them in and out and watching for the interior light to go on and off.
Ford Falcon 1993: High fuel consumption

Falcon clunking the gears
CHECK the firewall, specifically the bracket that takes the clutch cable. It is known to break where it is welded to that panel because of flexing of the firewall. Even if it is cracked, the pedal can feel normal and have the correct free play, but because the bracket moves when you depress the pedal, the clutch doesn't throw out enough and will drag when you go to shift gears. If you find the bracket is cracked, a repair kit is available from Ford. It may also be that the clutch is dragging because it is worn.

Thump in the auto
IT COULD be one of a number of things, but it is most likely the pressure control solenoid in the valve body, experts at AW Automatics say.
FORD electrics, don't you love 'em? You are simply experiencing the sorts of electronic gremlins that a lot of Ford owners experience. If the Ford dealer believes the problem is fixed with what they have done, then fine. If the problem returns, have the computer checked, as this is often the cause of these sorts of problems.
