Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport
Chime goes off on my car . I think it is the door sensor in my passenger door. The chime also goes off when I go uphill(sometimes). The car isn't registering that the door is closed. The chime always goes off ,then stops after I turn on the car. Then the car just sometimes chimes when I'm driving , the sometimes when I go uphill. Can I de-activate the sensor and is it in the locking mechanism? It is not my seatbelt, I always buckle up.
Open the drivers door and look at the hindge area and you will see a black rubber accordian tube between the door and the pillar.This is the protective cover for the wiring harness. Now take a screw driver and stick it into the latch that latches when u close the door and trip the latch. Now start up the vehicle and wiggle the black tube and see if you can duplicate the concern. If so then pull the cover back and inspect the wires for a broken wire. these models are bad for this happening.
