SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer. No chime sounds when keys left in ignition and driver door open. Also no chime that lights are on. Passenger door chimes when opened and key in ignition.

Bad door switch, or it may be dirty and "stuck" in the recessed position as it would be when the door is closed. I find WD-40 or equal is a good solution for this. Otherwise the switch's connections are bad (corrosion) or the switch itself is bad. More extreme is a break in the wiring to the switch and or connection near the fuse.

Door chimr module loca5ion 2005 taurus

There isn't a chime module , built into instrument cluster !
Door Ajar Chime
The door ajar chime feature is controlled by the smart junction box (SJB). The driver and passenger door ajar switches, and the lift gate are hardwired to the SJB. If any door or lift gate is sensed as being open, and the ignition switch is in RUN/START position, the SJB will process the input and sends a chime request to the instrument cluster over the controller area network (CAN).
Safety Belt Warning Chime
The safety belt chime feature is controlled by the restraints control module (RCM). The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the RCM. The RCM communicates with the instrument cluster over a hardwire connection. If at any time during the first 6 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in RUN the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the RCM will process the input, and in turn, sends a chime request to the instrument cluster.
Do you know what C.A.N controller area network is ? Serial data communication bus.

98 ford taurus wgn se door ajar light wont go out

The switches that activates the door ajar are located on the body frame. For front doors try looking between the hinges, on the frame of the body cavity. Might have a rubber grommet around it. On the back doors, look on the frame of the body cavity near the hinges.

"ding" won't stop

It might be the door chime relay itself that is shorted out. First remove it and see what happens . You should have power to the radio. To properly test it use a voltmeter and hook it up to the door chime terminals , then depress the door switch and see if the voltage droped to zero. If it did then the culprit is the relay if it didn't then its either the switch or you have a short in the system.

The door open light on the dash and the dome light wont go off on a 1999 ford taurus

Check the relay, replace it with the one right next to it, if that works, buy a new relay. If that does not work, you will need to replace the switch.

Location of door chimes module chimes wont stop and the aut door locks lock it back when i unlock it

one of the doors is not closed completely or...... the button is stuck in the depressed position. try each door one at a time, shut each firmly and check the result or................ look inside the door frame when the door is open to see if the button is popped out(there is a button that looks like a stem in the door jam towards the hinge end of the door). if you find one that is stuck (pushed in as if the door was closed) then pop it out with your finger or small screw driver and then lubricate it with a few drops of oil.
