Is there a multi switch on the dome light, on off and auto? Keeping it simple Is the bulb any good and connection inside? The whole key thing well the ignition maybe worn as it is 14 years old quirky thing do happen. Can you remove the key in the starting position?
Could even be a neutral safety switch causes. I had a 1997 do crazy things. Put it in reverse no rear light and radio turned off lol? Seriously!!! Videos are great if you can get one loaded for us.

This can be one of 2 things.

1. The door ajar switch ( part of the door latch ) is gummed up and a good spraying of WD-40 can clean it out. Could take several times to cure the issue.

The other specific to New Body Style 04-08 MY F-150 :

2. There is a bad splice in the driver's side door sills. On the SUperCrew it is usually closer to the c-pillar on the rear door.
These are pictures of the 2 splice locations :

The splice is a 3 way splice ( 2 wires to 1 wire ) and covered in something that looks like hockey tape. The splice gets wet, and no longer wrks. You might have to go back further into the harness to find wire that is not discolored if this is the case. Takes quite a bit of time to find the splices, as there are a lot of wires in the door sill.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that was running great when I parked it yesterday. Today it will not turn over, all electrical is out.


Dead battery. You must have left the headlights on or something. Sometimes when you turn your lights on from the passenger side without opening the driver-side door, the headlights may not go out automatically. Been there, done that!

2000 ford taurus no ignition power


In the diagram, the top wires are voltage to ignition switch, hot all the time, use a test lite to check for voltage, you can see the wire colors. The bottom wires go hot with key in the proper position, check them for voltage, also. I started to trouble shoot your power windows, figuring if you fix one component, it may fix the others. I guess it's 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another. Several ways to troubleshoot.
Any applicable trouble codes?

1997 taurus, start the engine, drive 5 min or 5 hrs. when i turn the car off and open the door the bell starts and dings for hours sometimes longer. please help me silence this.


If the key minder dings when the key is out, try wiggling the switch to see if it is loose and the sounder comes and goes. If so, replace the ignition switch, there was a problem with these on Fords for years. Some of them got to the point where you could turn the switch without the key in it.

One thing to check would be the wires in the loom in your door jamb by hinges on drivers side. It's not uncommon for those wires in there to wear, or break from door opening and closing, and causing weakness. Drivers door is usually first to go, as it is usually opened and closed the most. Look for corrosion, break, cracks, thin areas in wires.

03 Jetta headlight warning buzzer does not sound.


The sensor is in the door panel itself. The only fix I've found is to dismantle the door to replace the circuit board/sensor contained near the outside door handle. My 02 Jetta hasn't dinges for a few years now.
