Why do the turn signal lights come on the mirrors when doors open

I was wondering if anyone could tell me why the turn signal lights come on the mirrors when the two back sliding doors are open. Do all Windstars do this or do we need to worry about it and get it fixed. Thanks!!!

I have a 2013 GMC Sierra 1500. Where is the signal light control module LM487 located? I have the knee bolster off but still can't locate it.

signal light control module LM487 ???? How did you come up with this ??? Your vehicles BCM - body control module controls the hazard an turn signals . Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal switch to the BCM. When the hazard flasher switch is activated, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal/hazard switch to the BCM. The BCM then sends an ON-OFF voltage signal through the fuses to the appropriate turn signal and side repeater (export only) lamps or to all of the turn signal fuses for hazard operation. The driver door switch and passenger door switch also receive voltage from the BCM turn signal supply voltage circuits for the mirror turn signals. The door switches have no function or control of the mirror turn signals other than a pass through connection for the circuits. The audio chime is also activated when the turn signals are ON. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) receives the signals to activate the turn signal indicators over the GMLAN serial data system. When the hazard switch is pressed, all turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn indicators.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

My dome lights mirrors or door locks want work if i have my door cloosed but if i turn dome light switch all the way on with door open it all works if i cut my dome light switch off with doors open mirrors...

It's some kind of short. my guess either the wiring in the boot between the door itself and the frame/ body. or possibly in the circuit for the door courtesy switch, lastly the dome light circuit. if you have a test light, probe for a faulty circuit (grounding or incomplete)

The headlight, brake and turn signal all run out of the turn signal switch. this is what causing you to loose those items. the door is a clip that has broken inside the door that goes to the handle, you will have to take the door panel off to find the rod that is hanging

Deactivating the garage door opener

If you hold the 1st and 3rd botton down in your honda built in remote for aprox. 60 seconds or until the light next to the bottons goes out, this will erase the program from the car. You shouldn't have to mess with you garage door opener at all.
