Question about Plymouth Voyager

Open Question

Greetings. 1998 Voyager Expresso, no security system, remote door locks, 219,000+ miles: Door locks cycle by themselves, interior lights flash, door ajar chimes and lights go off and on, windshield wipers turn themselves on and off. When the vehicle is off, the interior lights go on and off by themselves, and the wipers run a few seconds after the key is off. The battery runs down within hours at intermittent times. Thanks in advance. --Ray

SOURCE: message says "door ajar" but no door open

There are 2 things we see on these models. 1st one is it could be a stuck door adjar switch. For this you can try and put WD40 into the latch on the side of the door, put a generous amount directly into the latch then close and open the door several times.This will un-stick a switch most of the time.
2nd thing it could be, open the door and look at the front of the opening between door and A pillar and you will see a black rubber accordian tube running between body and door,this is where the wires run from body to door. Sometimes a wire will break inside this.You can usually verify this by taking a screwdiver and trip the latch so that it shows the door closed(even though u have it open) then wiggle that harness and see if it effects the door adjar light.

SOURCE: Door ajar light stays on but all doors are closed.

one of your door switches is out of adjustment or defective.  You can test this by pushing in the switches manually.

SOURCE: electrical problem; while driving door ajar light comes on

it may be one of several things ...but sounds like the door switch is not completely engaging or it does and after either hitting a bump or just turning the corner it will break contact just enough to let the vehicle think its either open and then shut ...
in other words if you open the door and try using maby a piece of rubber hose and add it to the switch just a tiny piece or if there is an adjustment present to allow the switch to fully complete the circuit it should stop

as soon as you said the interior lights come on should have been a clue to the issue and being made of plastic they tend to wear bend and cause an issue as such .. on some vehicles there is a door panel that has a plastic stopper that meets the switch if yours is like that consider removing the retaining {plastic} insert screw and put a washer behind it to allow the 2 to meet at a shorter throw ..i hope you understand that .otherwise adjust the door switch if possible if that is not possible try a piece of cardboard temporiarily on all doors until you can decide if this remedies the issue and it should if so then consider replacing the switch or switches upon ensuring this is your issue

I have a 98 Nissan altima gxe and my alarm won't honk when I lock the car but the lights go off when I lock it and Wen I take the alarm off no honk or lights go off Wat can I do


holdboth the lock and unlosk buttons on your remote simultaneously for about five seconds until the lights flash and horn chirps.that should do it.if not i believe these models used a separate horn for security system.possibly fuse for this horn is bad or the horn itself is bad.to see if this horn works lower drivers window.stand outside vehicle and lock doors with remote.wait about a minute and reach in window and MANUALLY unlock and open door(do not use power door lock button)this should cause the system to activate...horn should beep and headlamps should flash.if horn beeps try my first suggestion.if it doesnt beep and just the head lamps flash check fuses and horn for security system.
