    I have the same problem with my 2000 windstar. But when I turn my van off and pull out my keys, 5 seconds latter the headlights, stereo and ac all come on and can not be shut off unless I disconect the batterey.

    I had a similar problem with the interior lights only. I pulled the fuse for them and removed the 2 "baby sleeping" lamps from under the dash. It just kept from running battery down, instead of fixing it.

    Correct solution would be to find the defective/loose "door is closed" switch. Don't forget the rear hatch door ! I kicked myself for not thinking for it B4 :)

The "door is locked" switch mechanism in the driver's door is not engaging when the door is closed. It is inside the door panel and right on the latch. It closes a circuot when the door is latched.

I was able to tighten the mounting on mine with some twist-wire and been right as rain for 3, 4 years now

2001 ford windstar door ajar light on even with all doors shut


In Windstar models the problem can be caused by the side sliding door contacts, but either of the two other switches in the right and left doors can also cause the light to blink on at times or just stay lighted. The issue is most noticed when the van is turned hard right or left when driving or on a rough road. A Ford dealer can run a test with a special scanner and ID exactly which switch is at fault.

FORD 2001 CV - Headlights and running lights off, instrument cluster lights off, dome light off, rear window defogger off, turn signals not working. Check all mini fuses under dash OK, maxi and mini fuses...


Your owners manual will show you the location of the relay, for the lights, swap the lights relay with another on. Also, if the light switch is working, and the fuse is good, you will be able to hear the relay click. Have a helper run the light switch while you listen for it to click.

I have a 1995 ford mustang and im experiencing something kinda werid if i let the car sit for more than a couple of hours my dome light doesnt work when i open the door but i can pull the headlight switch...


If you have a light control module then that is probably failing. However if the dome light is activated by small switches in the door pillars it is possible that the contact points may be rusty or have a bad earth.

Rear brakelights and turn signals do not work


The turn signal and brake lights are controlled by the turn signal switch.
You did not mention parking lights so I will assume they work.

Could be a faulty turn signal switch or a wiring problem between the dash and the rear of the van.
Do the hazard flashers work on all four corners ?
