    My 2002 Ford Ranger displays the door ajar light about every 3 months. I spray in through the latch with silicone spray lube for a temporary fix.

I took the panel off my driver side door and disconnected the switch that is on the latch. It's not a magnetic switch but one that has a plunger to close or open the switch. My internal cargo light won't come on when I open the door now but at least that stupid door ajar bell doesn't ring anymore.

Fords use magnetic switches in the doors. Driver's side commonly goes bad. Your Ford parts counter guy should know them well. Tricky to change, though. You'd have to scan the truck to tell which switch isn't working with a Ford scan tool.

Hazard lights flashing and alarm sounding. How do I stop these?


Every car brand and model has its procedure to stop the flashing light and alarm sounding.
But still the common procedure is Make sure boot and bonnet are closed properly.

It can also be a switch, but check your alarm by locking yourself inside the car, and then press the close button on the key 2 times repeatedly until the lock control on the door doesn't make anything. Then open the door by pushing the lever or open the hood . If the horn sounds and the lights blink your alarm is ok , if only the lights blink you should take it to dealer. You can stop the hazard lights and horn sound by pressing the unlock button on the key.

This sounds like a starter disable feature of a car alarm. Somewhere under the dash you are going to find a box with the start wires running to it. The start wire is black with a white stripe and is thick, about a 12 gauge wire. It will come from the ignition switch and run into a relay or box. It could be installed anywhere as it is aftermarket. Once you find it, you can reconnect both ends of the starter wire and you can start it with the key. I would disconnect the power to the alarm or your lights are going to flash at random. The factory alarm (just in case it is the issue, but that isn't likely) is located behind the radio and ashtray.

Red light next to hazard light button blinks when car is off and no key, doors closed, is not hazard lights


If it's a tiny red L.E.D. like a car alarm indicator, then it's to let you know the imobilizer is set, factory fitted and set to work from your key sensor(built into the ignition switch and key)

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.
