Yes this is your problem, the clicking you hear is a relay that makes the park lights flash, you will need to unhook this system, the starter wires must be reconnected and the rest you can leave but the power needs to be removed from the unit, there are fuses under the dash on the alarm wires remove them. hope this helps.

2009 STS drivers door sensor seems to be inoperative. The cab light does not come on when this door opens all other doors work. Also the steering wheel Auto Up on Exit does not work

could be a bad wire, BCM, switch/module, etc. I think most cars have a door module in each door as opposed to a simple compression switch in the 1990's. Unfortunately electrical is near impossible to diagnose on the internet unless its simple or a notorious problem on a certain model.

Mustang 2006 coupe water on passenger side floor, where are the drain areas for this car?

sounds like your A/C drain is clogged since its in that area...only other drain holes are at the very bottom of the doors which would not cause a build-up of water in the area your talking about...chek A/C drain hose/pipe...if its raining when you find this build-up of water then possibly your windshield needs attention...just squirt a water hose at the windshield in the general area of the leak and have someone look inside for any leaks...Cecil

Door ajar/seat belt bell/busser dings constantly. how do you disconnect? please help. allen florida

Follow your ear to the buzzing noise (normally below steering wheel) you will find the small unit (relay) that makes the sound, simply pull it out.. problem solved.

You may find one of the door switches are stuck so the car thinks the door is open?

Clicking coming from rear right panel in 2003 Lincoln Navigator.

it sounds like you have a door ajar switch issue if it says "door open" when it's not. Is it clicking in the passenger rear door or in the storage area behind the rear seat behind the right trim panel?
The liftgate wiring may be back there.
Your door lock & unlock relays are in the vehicle security module which is under the center area of instrument panel.
I looked at the wirng diagram and don't see too much back there.
Let me know what you find on where the clicking is coming from.
We'll go from there

My name is Dennis
and I'm sorry to tell you this but you should check your constant velocity universal joint in the front wheel for wear or failure. If this knocking gets severe that is more noticeable when you turn your front wheels to the far end of travel you may have an expensive problem and this is normally fixed at the dealership.
please rate the solution because i will learn from your rating. Thank you
