Issues with 98 Windstar

We just got a 98 Windstar from a family member a couple days ago and have a couple problems. First, the sliding door on the side has an issue with the 4 "switches" on the door and the interior lights don't like to go off. I've got it down to the third spring loaded "button" from the top being the culprit. Is there a quick and easy fix for this without replacing the whole thing or tearing the door apart? Second, the computer is giving me a code P1538 (Intake Manifold Runner Control (Bank 1 and Bank 2) stuck open). This van sat for about 4 months without being started. I had to replace the battery and 2 tires. Could it be possible that the linkages on these controls are just in need of some lube? And does anybody know how much those things cost? The local parts stores (Autozone, Advance, and NAPA) don't show a listing for them. One even told me they aren't on my engine (as I was looking right at them, no less!) It's a 3.8 by the way...

Thanx
