Question about 2003 Ford Windstar

1 Answer

2003 Windstar power doors, power mirrors trouble

One of the power doors will not stay closed at times, it continues to reopen unless car is running. The other door will not open unless you hold the unlock button and the opener button simultaneously. Sometimes it seems as if the weather makes a difference. The mirrors work up to a certain spot then will not. You can only adjust up close to the car. When you get out further it quits operating. Sometimes the driver side door does not lock with the power locks. Only that lock does not go down. We have cleaned all of the contacts with alcohol, sometimes that seems to help but it may be coincidental.

You may have to inspect the wiring of the devices. If you say the contacts including those for the relay are ok, then the ground connection or exposed conductors may the the source of the problem. Water, vibration may cause failures for such cases.

Why do the interior lights stay on when doors are closed and engin is off in 2003 ford windstar


one of the door switches is stuck. you can try and free up, however you need to find which one it is. try and spray pblaster, or rust renetrant into the top of the latches, and dont forget the hatch door as they usually stick the most. someone with a good scanner can tell which door switch is staying on, or the dealer can for a fee........jim

2003 lincoln navigator running board stay out on passanger side unless your are moving (they retract) passenger mirror does not adjust backig up message continues saying door ajar


You probably have a bad door switch that is located in the door latch.If the vehicle tells you which door is ajar I would try a good penetrating oil first and if not replace that door latch.It will take a bit of working the latch before it will start to work if thats all it is so have some patients with it.

2003 lincoln navigator running board stay out on passanger side unless your are moving (they retract) passenger mirror does not adjust backig up message continues saying door ajar


The door switches are built in the latches on each of the doors, they are pron to sticking, leaving the security module to beleive the door is open.
The simple fix is to spray a generous amount of WD40 on, in, and around the door latches, then opening and closing the door a few times. I would start with the passenger door as`this is likely the culprit. do the rest of the latches as a prevenitive measure.

Hope this is of some help.

Spray some WD40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close the doors several times firmly.This will unstick the door adjar switch most of the time.Start with drivers door first.

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.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.
