The problem is caused by a defective door ajar/dome light micro switch, there is one for each door, they are mounted to the door latch assembly inside the door, to replace it you must remove the door panel and the rear glass run channel, most likely the drivers door is the one that is defective since it sees the most use, they are a real pain to get out,they twist in and the old one will be a bear to remove, twist it out counter clockwise to remove from latch

    here is a picture of the switch, in real life it is very small, there is one for power locks and one for without.

After overheating my truck turns over but wont start?

One of the most common causes of this occurence is the fuel pump. Check if you can hear the fuel pump turn on right before you turn the key fully. There is a place to check fuel pressure on the back of the engine with a manual screw on gauge.

Right headlight & fog lamps wont work

yes and more then likely it is the problem, the fuse box is under the hood its black and near the drivers side. if the fuse for the lights are not in there then that means its in the interior. the fuse panel in the interior is on the drivers side, open the door and you should see the panel stating fuse on it. let us know what you find.

The ignition bell wont stop ringing

You need to unplug the door harness one at a time to locate which door is causing the problem. Once the door is located, you can replace the switch which is located on the lock mechanism.

99 ford ranger is stuck on defrost. hot and cold controls still work but doesnt come out of defrost position.

defrost is usually the default/resting position for interior vents. you probably have a cracked/broken vacuum line between the climate control unit and the vent actuator
