Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
The door dings even when the keys are not in the ignition. If we pull the fuse it quits but the wipers and the windows won't work. How can we just make the door quit dinging?
I had the exact same problem
get a small screwdriver and put the key in the run position, insert the screwdriver in the little hole below the ignition and push up on the little button inside then pull on the ignition and it will slide out. clean all the contact surfaces with contact cleaner like alcohol (do not use harsh chemicals or oil of anykind). use 800 grit sandpaper if you have to. once all contact areas have been cleaned (including the 2 feeler like contacts) reassemble the ignition by pushing it back in... the issue should be resolved, if not, repeat :).

Hi, My 1998 ford wind-star van 3.8 lit. started smoking under the steering column. Just a small amount. I turned the van off and now it won't start. I took the panels off but didn't locate any bad wiring. The battery was low so I charged it up but it wasn't the battery. I turned the key several more times and it finally started. When I got home and turned it off it wouldn't start back up again. Please HELP!!! Greg

The key buzzer switch in the ignition is bad .It is part of the ignition switch.
