Doors locking and dinging sound while driving

I have a 99 Ford Windstar V6 minivan that the check engine light has been on for awhile and it was registering as a fuel problem so we replaced the fuel filter runs great, and now when you are driving down the road the doors keep locking even though they are already locked and you hear the dinging sound like when the key is left in ignition. Please HELP!!

One of your door sensors in the door jam is loose or worn out, or a door is out of adjustment, and not closing all the way.

Where is the fuse box on my 1997 ford windstar lx?


If you remove the interior light fuse just to turn it off and to turn off the dinging noise then for sure this will drive you nuts, That fuse is part of the shift interlock,what this mean you wont be able to get the car out of park.That interior light and ding is part of the GEM module so you have to fix the problem,in the driver door panel part of the door lock assemble is the switch,either you disconnect that switch or you replace the switch.

Does the door ajar light come on when it makes the dinging sound? If so you probably have a stuck door sensor in the drivers door. The drivers door is the only one, I believe, that makes the dinging sound when it is opened when the ignition is on. Spray some WD-40 into the door latching mechanism and try to free up the micro switch, this is not a bad idea as preventative maintenance even if you are not having a problem.

'89 Ford Probe electrical issue


are you wearing your Seatbelt,are your doors closing all the way hatchback ajar ? i only ask as these would be the Dinging sounds your having chances are you have a bad door pin switch which isnt closin the loop as for your Check engine light being its OBD1 you will have to run a scan tool to see what the codes are that are throwing the Intermintent check engine light but as for the dinging it sounds like a Door pin switch thats gone bad try that 1st ....and this is not a solution but it will be close to it and also scans arent that expensive and it beats throwin Money at a problem that could be dont Guess there are at least 60 known Faults if not more that can Trigger that light to come on ....Goodluck

Door ajar idiot light wont go out and bells is going off on a 1997 ford windstar minivan. which fuse do i pull thanks no manual


Sound like one of the door jamb switches is bad. Try taking a pencil or screw driver and pushing in on each door switch. Push the switch beyond the "flush" point to see if the switch is just not fully closing.
