SOURCE: 2001 FORD WINDSTAR MINI-VAN HEADLIGHTS, DOME LIGHT,

The "door is locked" switch mechanism in the driver's door is not engaging when the door is closed. It is inside the door panel and right on the latch. It closes a circuot when the door is latched.

I was able to tighten the mounting on mine with some twist-wire and been right as rain for 3, 4 years now

SOURCE: Ford ranger 1998 the door ajar wont turn off and the dome light isnt turning on

Spray inside the center door latch with WD40 or silicone lubricant. You might have to remove or partically remove the plastic shield cover the opening. It's the part the door latches too, spray all around inside there and that should allow the switch to release. the switch either dries out or gets dirty and sticks, the spay will loosen and clean it.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Ford F150 no Dome lights and cargo lights

This may be too obvious, but check the dimmer dial on your dashlights. There's a detent in the off position that will turn all dash and cargo etc lights off...

Thermswitch ford wind star 1998 how to fix


The radiator fans are controlled by the Powertrain control module using the input from the engine coolant temp sensor, the fans are turned on at about 230 degrees Fahrenheit so keep that in mind when you decide they don't work. If the system is defective it may be the replay control module that the PCM signals to actually engage the fans and that needs to be tested with a ford scan tool.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

I got the fuse diagram from the internet for my 1998 ford explorer sport and when I checked out my fuses I noticed that the amps on the diagram didn't match what I had in my fuse box. Would that make me...


Find this out by placing a amp gage between your battery + post and the battery + cable (disconnect it). Start pulling out fuses until you see the .085 drainage stop.

The warning bell and dome lights come on when I slow down as in stopping at a stop sign. The dome lights also stay on after I stop close doors and leave car. They remain on for up to an hour or so.


this is almost alwys caused by defective door coutesy light/door ajar switch contacts is the sliding doors of the van,have done dozens at work for this problem.
