SOURCE: The radio stopped working on
The key reminder and back up sensors on these cars are by both a computer behind the rear seat back and the radio itself, these two things communicate with eachirher through what is called a dash integration module. Concurrency your stereo isn't working, the popping sounds and that your battery is being drained, the first most likely cause is that the radio itself or the wiring going to it has a short or is otherwise damaged. The electrical systems in your car is extremely complex, I would strongly suggest taking it to a dealer or a shop that is experienced with your model and/or has access to factory repair manuals.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
The door sensor surely is worn out. It's the little button that the door hits when shut close. If it's worn out it may trigger that it's open even if it's closed that's why the chime goes on. I strongly suggest that you replace the door sensor to resolve the problem.
Try putting some padding too on the slide door so that when the door hits the sensor it will be pushed. That is if you like the idea and not spending for the door sensor.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Door left open chime is operated by your interior light switch. It is located in a few places on different vehicles. Often in the door jam at the front or low down on the pillar at the rear of the door. You will notice a little black rubber boot and when you push it it goes in and out. That is your interior light switch.

Water intrusion causes f150's fuse boxes to corrupt. This is porbably your problem. Mine does the same thing, if you disconnect the fuse to the chime, you will lose your windshield wipers as well.. Check and see if your windshield wipers turn on even with no key in the ignition. Soon your fuses will start blowing left and right. You prbably need a new fuse box. Don't let anyone talk you into replacing it with a used one. My mechanic has replaced it with a used one 5 times to no avail. They were all bad. Afetr paying him almost $300 he refuses to work on it anymore. Even though it still isn't fixed. I even offered to pay the difference for a new fuse box. I have basically been screwed out of $300. So take my advise just pay the $400 for a new one from Ford to save yourself a headache.
