The problem may be in the drivers door switch.Even though the door is open the switch may be at falt.Even if the door were closed the radio will shut off after 5/10 mins.

Where is chime module located on 2005 ford taurus


There is no chime module ,there is a speaker inside the instrument cluster.
Door Ajar Chime
The door ajar chime feature is controlled by the smart junction box (SJB). The driver and passenger door ajar switches, and the liftgate are hardwired to the SJB. If any door or liftgate is sensed as being open, and the ignition switch is in RUN/START position, the SJB will process the input and sends a chime request to the instrument cluster over the controller area network (CAN).
Safety Belt Warning Chime
The safety belt chime feature is controlled by the restraints control module (RCM). The driver safety belt switch is hardwired to the RCM. The RCM communicates with the instrument cluster over a hardwire connection. If at any time during the first 6 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in RUN the driver safety belt is sensed as being unfastened, the RCM will process the input, and in turn, sends a chime request to the instrument cluster.
Have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ,not OBD 2 codes , the check engine light has nothing to do with this .
Instrument Cluster Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 Instrument Cluster is Defective Instrument Cluster INSTALL a new instrument cluster. REFER to Section 413-01 . B1352 Ignition Key-In Circuit Failure Instrument Cluster Go To Pinpoint Test B . B2477 Module Configuration Failure Instrument Cluster REFER to Section 413-01 .

2003 Chev Malibu. Radio inop with key in on position, auto systems not working, I.e. daytime running lamps, auto lock and drivers unlock, fuel and temp gauges not working.


Have you had vehicle check for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes . Check fuse's an relays , find wiring diagrams to see what controls these systems ?
Radio/Battery fuse , fuse G 10 amp located in the right instrument panel fuse box . Do you know where this ?
Fuse Block - Right IP - On the right side of the instrument panel
An there is one on the other end of the instrument panel ,driver side .
Fuse Block - Left IP- On the left side of the instrument panel The fuel an temp . gauges not working is probably the step motors inside instrument cluster . GM had problem with this 03 to 06 .

Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
The ambient light sensor is a light sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes to the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal it will either turn on the daytime running lights (DRL) or the headlights. Any function or condition that turns on the headlights will cancel the daytime running lamps operation. With the headlight switch in the OFF position, the headlights will either be turned ON or OFF, after an approximate 30 second delay depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The HTR A/C IGN fuse in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the daytime running lamp (DRL) relay coil circuit. The DRL relay switch contacts are connected to the low beam circuit. When the headlamp switch is placed in the OFF position, the BCM will either turn on or off the daytime running lamps, depending on whether daylight or low light conditions are sensed. The BCM energizes the DRL relay, closing the switch contacts and grounding the low beam circuit. Ground is provided at G101. The DRL illuminate the low beam headlights at a reduced intensity. The DRL will operate when the ignition switch is in the ON position, the gear selector is not in the PARK position and the parking brake is released. When these conditions have been met and the ambient light sensor indicates daytime conditions, the DRL will illuminate.
DRL operation in Manual Transmission equipped vehicles will occur when the ignition switch is in the ON position, and the parking brake is released. - check fuse's an relay first.
Door Lock System Components
The power door lock system consists of the following components:
?€¢
Driver door lock switch


?€¢
Front Passenger door lock switch


?€¢
Body Control Module (BCM)


?€¢
Relays: Driver Door Unlock--if equipped, Door Unlock, and Door Lock


?€¢

Where is the manual liftgate sensor located 2009 Equinox


The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
Not sure what your talking about . There is no sensor. there is a relay in the I/P fuse box LIFTGATE PCB relay . an a lift gate actuator motor inside the door . An there is a door ajar switch ,which is part of the latch mechanism. Do you have light lit on the instrument cluster - a picture of a little car with a door open , an maybe a chime sounding ?

Not

The temperature gauge in my 2007 Chev Equinox... is up passed the red section... all the way up to the temperature icon. My car is not overheating. What can be done to fix this? How safe is it to drive...


Its probably the gage itself. A quick stop by a Dealership and they can check the instrument cluster gage by gage. For free maybe! If not the gage, could be the engine temperature sensor.
As long as the engine is NOT overheating, you can still drive it.

2006 ford ajair switchneed to find out were on door


The door ajar switch is part of the door latch.

Example the driver's door the wire from the door latch is Back w/ Yellow stripe wire ( switched to ground ) , the passenger front door is Black w/ Pink stripe wire.

These go to the instrument cluster, if the factory RKE is not installed. With the factory RKE, they are run to the BSM / VSM ( Body / vehicle security module ).

Is the problem the radio will not turn off when you open the driver's side door ( have to open the passenger to get the radio to shut off ) ?

Radio will not shut off until I open and close another door


The theft light coming on is normal. Also, the radio will stay on for about 10 minutes after the key is removed and you do not open the doors.
