My seat ibiza radio keeps turning itself on and running the battery down

Simple solution for anyone! Had the same problem with radio turning itself on in my Seat Ibiza Stella 1.4 2000. Here's what you do..
. Remove front panel
. Disconnect tape player and open it
. Clean the mother board paths(bottom side) with some chemical liquid not to strong(i used sticker remover) from black dirt. You can scratch between paths with a needle for better effect.
. Put all back together
. Problem solved.
It was driving me mad but now it's working when I want it to :)

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...

You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

My 2003 ford excursion thinks there is a door open when all the doors including the rear hatch is closed leaving the running boards and interior lights on for several minutes. How can this be fixed?

For the door ajar--You can do a simple test of each door opening. Just take a small amount of masking or duct tape and make a small ball of tape. Stick this on each doorjam switch one or 2 at a time and if the lights work better you need to work on the bad jam switch. Just remember that the sequence of the engine running, shutting the engine off, then opening and closing the door must be repeated for each opening including the cargo doors. You need to duplicate the conditions for all the relays to trip to cause this problem.

The door ajar warning is what is keeping the lights on and the Battery saver in your truck is overriding the door ajar problem. I hope my solution is helpful, there are some plastic dividers in the doorjam switches and sometimes they break.

My tape cassete keeps opening and closing while

The switch inside the tape player needs to be cleaned or replaced. The dealers send out all radois to a repair shop that is an authorized repair facility to perform this type of work. Shop mechanics do not repair radios or tape decks at any dealer I know of. It may be far less to replace your ciurrent unit with an aftermarket one unless you want to keep your factory unit instead. Many top shelf radios are out there and most can be found at stores like Best Buy and even Car Max these days

Jeep 2001 Cherokee Sport Rear Passenger door was hit. Lights will not go out.

Can you open the door? Most likely the door is not making (enough) contact with the plunger which shuts off the lights. If you can get to this plunger, until you get the door fixed, either tape the plunger to the "in" position, or tape something to the door itself to close the gap between the door and the plunger to make the plunger go in. I have had to use quarters (25cents) and duck tape until more permanent repasirs could be made.
Also: there should be on your dash: panel and interior light dimmer/turn off switch. You can turn this/set this so the interior lights do not come on at all.

The latch/lock on back door of Mitsubishi Montero SR doesn't work

Open the rear tailgate from the inside. Now open the door to the toolkit that is usually mounted on the tailgate/rear door. Using a large Phillips screw driver[usually a #3 tip], take the tool kit off the door panel by unscrewing/removing the screws holding it to the door itself. Once you have removed the tool kit, use a knife to carefully cut a "U" shaped access flap in the clear plastic sheet that should have been behind your tool kit. This sheet is called a water shedder or water curtain, it keeps water off the back of any door panel trim to prolong its life. You want to cut that U shaped hole in the sheet where the door sheet metal already has a hole from the factory. This will allow you to peek up inside your door and see how much of the rear door handle broke on you.
You should be able to easily see the guts of the rear latch and the release handle from this vantage point. Try to move the handle on the outside of the door. If any linkage or plastic 'arms' broken during your winter, you'll probably see this as well. Hopefully new parts are available, otherwise, you'll need to access a used Montero in a salvage yard to get good working parts as a repair. While you're in the door, lube ALL latch, cable, handle parts with a light oil to help prevent this from happen[the oil or a light grease will help displace any future water or ice from sticking to any latch parts]
You can easily tape the U shaped cover you made of the plastic sheeting back up into place with some decent tape, like Duct tape or packing tape. Masking Tape will work, but falls apart in a car with age. Clear plastic Packing tape works well and is transparent to boot. Good Luck with the door.

1988 Chrysler New Yorker Auto Headlight panels won't stay open

It's possible the nylon gear in the door motor located behind center of grill is stripped. There is also an assist spring on the bar to the passenger side lamp door which may have become disconnected.
The motors cost around $80.00 for the part but if your just looking to keep them open you could insert a small screw near the pivot point of either lamp door.
