Question about Ford Fairmont

1 Answer

I have a BF 2006 Wagon, the door ajar light will not go out. all doors and tailgate are secure. The chime sounds quite often and always when right blinker is activated. The interior light also flashes in conjunction with the chime. My auto electrician shrugged his shoulders and wants me to leave the car with him for a few days, the car is a taxi and is my livelyhood, behing without it for a few hours is bad, but a few days would be severe. Please help me, I will sit and stare at the 'puter waiting a response. Thank you....Dave

    The problem was a major electrical connector located under the front passenger carpet. It sits in a 'well' moulded/pressed into the floor pan which fills with water and corrodes the contacts. I cleaned the connector and put in a small drain hole and have had no problems since.

99% is one of the switches in one of the door jams has become faulty. The switch will be coverd by a rubber boot. You can remove the switches and test them with a multimeter to find the bad one.

2005 jeep wrangler when i turn lights on beeping starts


did you RTM read the operators guide yet,
it tells you why all beeps beep and what lamps flash, (warning) and why. did you?
you turn on, the head lights, (what about 1st click , parking lights"?)
and does the dash cluster, show warnings of any kind?

if a door is ajar the system will think, you are exiting veh. with lights on and tell you, buy beeping ,etc.
but on my jeep it says on the dash DOOR, or on EVICs, (not yours)
the newer car even tells what door IS AJAR.
mine on shows , "DOOR"
the operator guide will say, check all doors for ajar, and get warning clear before driving....etc.

if you lost the guide here it is for free

click the 05 link

and headlamps left on
and door ajar.

Lights-On Reminder

Does the bcm control the alarm in a 2006 monte Carlo? I can't seem to get the alarm to go off. I've also noticed that I have no chime and turn signal sounds. I just recently purchased this car and...


The no chime and turn signal has nothing to do with the alarm. You have a issue with power supply to turn flasher and door chime. The alarm consist of The door ajar switch,body control module,front door lock switch,power door lock switch. You need to check your fuse for turn signal and the door chime

98 VW Beetle-Door Ajar Chiming while driving


Your door lock module is bad. There are two ways to fix it. #1 is to replace the module. Various places online sell new ones for $160, while you can get them used for around $50. #2 is to replace the switch, which costs around $3-9, but then you have to remove the door lock module, remove the old switch, and mount/solder the new one in. You can also pull the door lock module and cut the wires going to the switch which will tell the door that it's always shut, and it will stop your dinging. That one's free, assuming you can get to the DLM.
