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

SOURCE: door ajar dash trouble and dome light stays on even if all doors

The door sensors will need to be replaced. A screws can be removed and then a wire can be taken of and you then can replace the switch.

SOURCE: The dome light does not turn off and the door ajar

the problem is door ajar switch located on one of the door latches just inside the door. what usually works is spraying wd40 or an electronic lubricant prayed liberally into the door latch and then opening and closing the door several times. the stuck switch is usually on the door that is the least used door like the passenger side rear. let us know how you make out.

SOURCE: having trouble with door ajar dome light staying

There is a switch that connects to the door latch inside the door. They can get sticky or come loose causing your complaint. Usually it is the drivers door since that door gets used the most. The door panel has to come off to access the switch. Sometimes you can remove the dome light fuse to take care of the light and indicator until it gets repaired.

Door ajar switch problem more then likely or wiring issue . The BCM - body control module won't turn off interior light , let door lock because it think's the door is open . The door ajar switch is a input to the BCM .

The first thing would be to have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also check with an enhanced scan tool to see if the BCM shows ajar switch data (open or closed ? Do you know about body electronics ?

Why do I hear my 2000 Malibu beep 14 times on the drivers side of vehicle and then stops?


Could be just a glitch. The BCM controls the beep through the radio. Thats why you hear for the speaker/drivers side. There are three possibilities for the beep. Door ajar with the key in the ignition, turn signal on too long, and seat belt unbuckled with the car running. Check for lights in the dash. no door ajar light, no seatbelt light. That could be the problem.

Dash lights for door adjar, seat belt, and windshield washer turn on in sequence then all turn off


You will need to replace the ignition starter switch, this switch is operated by a long steel rod from the ignition key cylinder, it is located under the dash on the top of the steering column tube, it has a very large connector going to it. See the photo below of the part.
Color of switch is black .

Have tried several of these fixes...none seem to work - is there an actual fix?? Our 98 Windstar, when it is warm outside and we use the side door - the door ajar light comes/stays on and the dome lights...


I have a 2000 and the side door has four prongs sticking out of it, they are spring loaded. when mine messed up it was for the speakers. I took mine apart and fixed it, A spring had popped out some how. They are a simple setup.

Body Control Module


Door Ajar
The door ajar signal comes from door open warning lamp switches (14018) located in the door jamb. When any door is open, the generic electronic module (GEM) will cause the door ajar warning indicator to be illuminated on theinstrument cluster . The warning indicator will turn off when the warning condition is removed (the door is closed). You could have a bad door ajar switch .A bad seat belt buckle switch and a low washer fluid sensor bad as well . Finding wiring diagrams for these circuits an doing voltage testing Is the proper way to diagnose problems like this . After four different GEM module . The seat belt buckle switch has B+ voltage on one wire , Brown with lite blue stripe . The other wire goes to ground G-300 . When the buckle is closed voltage goes to ground G- 300 . The GEM will see this an turn off the light . You do not have a bad GEM . This is probably what's wrong with the other lights . Find wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
Enter vehicle info. year , make , model engine size . Under system click on body & accessories , under subsyetem click body controls . Hit the search button , click on the blue link . The diagram will show pin # for each of the lights your having problems with. Test voltage AT each pin . if there is voltage , don't know if system voltage or a five volt reference voltage . There is nothing wrong with the GEM . U better find yourself a better mechanic .

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.
