Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

Chime goes off

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.

1996 ford explorer door ajar chime goes on and door locks constantly open What's wrong


Door ajar sensors on explorers get disconnected, sometimes the magnets get stuck. Spray WD40 or a lubricant on all four door jamb mechanisms (or two). Sometimes only one fails, and it is usually the tail gate one. Do a google.com search for the location of the sensors and see if they need replacement.

Good luck.

My warning chime goes off at random.


Check all your seat belt attachments! This seem to be a leading oroblem with all vehicles that has a few miles on them. All it takes is wasting coffie or soda's into one of those locking mechanisms and it thinks the seat belt is not locked. All these vehicles have seat sensors too! If you sat anything more than 3 to 5 lbs on the seat, it thinks someone is sitting on the seat and the chime will continually go off and drive you nuts. Hope this helps you with your problem Sir
