Check the door jam switch for the light. The switch may be starting to go bad.It is probably sticking at times and keeping the light on.

Installed new battery in my 2005 explorer; now warning lights, cabin lights, and door locks are acting irratically.


how long was the battery out of the vehicle? some vehicles require reprogramming if the battery power is off the vehicle for a period of time. Might want to check with a parts man at your dealership. They sometimes give you free information. they know their fords because they sometimes they sell a lot of the same parts.

I went to start my 200 ford windstar van and it just clicks. Lights come on but wont turn ove. Is the battery bad or what? WE also have had very cold bad weather could this make the battery go bad?


It sounds like the solenoid that activates the starter is activating, but there isn't enough juice to turn the motor. You say the lights come on, but test it by putting on the interior light, then put on the headlights, if the interior light dims or goes out the battery is almost certainly dead. It might be that you left something on and the battery drained, but sadly, poor batteries will fail completely in cold weather and that's end of life. First step is a jump start from a neighbour. If that starts it, run the vehicle around for half an hour and see if that has recharged the battery. When you come to turn it off to test it, PARK ON A GOOD HILL! Then if the battery is still dead, you can use the hill to roll down and bump start the vehicle (IF ITS A MANUAL OF COURSE). If the jump start fails, If the lights remain on and bright when you test, then you have a starter fault (Probably the starter motor its self). Expect it to be the battery. What you describe is a 90% probability that it is the battery

Why do the lights on my 2000 Ford Explorer flicker -interior and headlights


It is most likely the alternator that is bad,have it checked,or ,if you have a volt meter,hook up at the battery,start the vehicle,and turn the headlights on,and the ac on high blower.It should read 13.65 volts,to 14.25 volts,if it is lower than this,or higher than this,replace the alternator.

Ford Explorer, 1998, V6 4L SOHC. Will not start. Acts like battery is dead. Jump starts successfully. Battery takes and holds charge (13.3V) only when disconnected. When battery leads are reconnected...


Most partstores will test battery altenator and starter for free. Either your battery is dead or your connections are not metal to metal contact, or you starter relay may be shot. You can put key in on position and either test with a voltmeter or use a screwdriver and jump terminals on solenoid to see if starter turns.
