98 Ford Explorer. No chime sounds when keys left in ignition and driver door open. Also no chime that lights are on. Passenger door chimes when opened and key in ignition.


Bad door switch, or it may be dirty and "stuck" in the recessed position as it would be when the door is closed. I find WD-40 or equal is a good solution for this. Otherwise the switch's connections are bad (corrosion) or the switch itself is bad. More extreme is a break in the wiring to the switch and or connection near the fuse.

98 Olds LLC - AC works but fan air does not blow


If you have a late model GM car and the system is controlled electronically the blend door actuator becomes weak. When this situation occurs it will not move the air direction door inside of the heater/air conditioner plenum. in your case not to the vents Replace the actuator with new and recheck the system. i hope this helps

Chimes ring when you open drivers side door no keys in ignition


Sounds like the contact for the key chime in the steering column is shorted to ground. The only way to get the contact is to buy the clockspring. If you can live with it leave it alone. The clockspring is labor intense. You have to remove the airbag,steering wheel, and trim around column. If you ar mechanically inclined you could just disconnect it by cutting the wire going to the chime. It is under the key tumbler. I hope this helps.

Door ajar light & chime go off while driving.


Could be as simple as enough body movement to trip one. Find the buttons on the door posts & put something on them like masking tape (few layers) where those buttons or levers touch the door, and see if that helps, then start removing it one door at a time. And/Or, push in on the doors with some force & see which one has the most movement, the one that does, may be your culprit.
