Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

Everything is going haywire

I have a 1997 Ford tarsus gl and my problem is , I get into my car and shut the door and the interior light down't go off. on the dashboard I see a little icon that shows the car and the doors are open but all of the doors are closed. Also sometimes the little seatbelt icon comes on and I hear clicks coming from under the dash and sometimes my steering wheel seems to want to lock up on me when I try to make a turn.
Another problem I am having is my radio plays but when I put it in park it turns off but when I put it in drive again it plays but sometimes it doesn't play at all.

My 95 Ford Windstar has just developed a rather distressing problem. In the morning, I get in my van and everything is fine. A few hours later, when I get in my van and start it, there is a warning bell...


one of the door ajar switches are sticking. needs to be put on the computer to find out which one. only other way is to go around and unplug the switches until your light shuts off.

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.
