SOURCE: 95 ford windstar door ajar

These switches are inside the doors attached to the door latch assembles.If you know some one with a scan tool you can go into the body computer and see which one is showing open when all the doors are closed. The most likly one is the drivers side door or the two in the rear gate. I've replaced those the most.If you don't want to replace them you can unplug them and the lights will go off. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know> Thanks Dan

SOURCE: Door Ajar light and dinger, interior lights stay on, looking for a fuse diagram.

It drove me nuts too. Fortunately, the solution is both cheap and simple. There is a latch mechanism in each side of the tailgate which gets all filled with dirt and slime.The latch jaws start to stick and dont move far enough to close the door ajar switch inside the tailgate Spray each latch generously with WD40, wipe the mechanisms off with a rag, close the tailgate, open the tailgate and repeat the cleaning several times. As soon as you get everything freed up, the switch will be able to report that the tailgate is closed and the problems will be gone. If you want, afterwards you can spray a little lithium grease on the latches to keep things running smooth. You may need to use a screwdriver to completely pry open the jaws in conjunction with opening the tailgate handle to get them to open fully while you are washing and wiping them off. Now's a real good time to lubricate all the door hinges and latches including the sliding door. May as well put some oil on the hood hinges and hood latch too.It's not impossible to keep Fords on the road....just tricky......very tricky.

SOURCE: 98 ford windstar. power windows, windshield wipers,willnot work,.

This sound like some type of relay switch failure in the fuse box, you need check all the fuses and see if they're all intact and make sure none of them are burned out. If all these are not working you have a live wire some where in you wire harness

Why does the door open light stay on in my 1998 Windstar when no doors are open?


is the switch in the always on position ? did they stay on for 30 seconds or so after locking /unlocking vehicle prior to this ? so i'd check the the light switch function, if ok then there may be a timer relay for the light that has failed , most likely located in fusebox lower dash drivers side or behind the kick panel drivers side keep me posted if you wish
















?

Brake shuddering, interior lights stay on, white exhaust, signal light problems, heater fan will turn off periodically, smoke coming from back vent...is it worth fixing up? 1998 Ford Windstar GL Thanks!


The white exhaust is a bad head gasket
and coolant causing the white smoke

That's about as bad as it gets, forget
the other issues for now

I would part with it and stay away from
any van type vehicles,the transmissions
are terrible

The door sensor stays on when i open and close the side door on my 1998 ford windstar which causes the interior light to stay on.. what can i do to stop that from happening?


I had the same problem. Cheap way to fix is to remove fuse. Only problem with that is my power windows were on the same fuse so they wouldn't work without the fuse. Alternative was to remove the bulbs from interior lights and leave the fuse in. The door ajar light will remain on but at least your interior lights won't be on running down your battery.

Interior lights stay on after doors closed.


Had same problem with my 98 windstar. I checked all the doors to see which door it was and found it was the sliding door. I try w40 did not work i guess sensors were to worn. The only solution was to take sensor from the door and cross the black wires. It works no more light on.

Ford 2003 Windstar Interior Floor Lights Stay On


to repair this problem you must remove floor lights from seats and check the circuit for either a short or a stuck switch use a multi tester this can get to be irritating as the short may be not directly behind switch could be along wiring that runs through car my suggestion if your not electrically proficient is take it to an electromechanic shop or simply unplug the light from socket to avoid draining the battery.
