Tailgate on a 01' Ford Windstar LX is rattling.


From your description, I believe your tailgate is not latching when you close it. Slamming it shut instead of simply closing it should solve your problem

there is a pin near the hinges for the doors that turns it off when the door closes. the pin must be damaged. it can be bypassed but you would want a mechanic to do that for you.

My door ajar light remains lite


The switches are FAMOUS for sticking. The easiest thing to do is spray (I mean HOSE) the latch in the door with penetrating oil and repeatedly close and open the door, like 20 times, this may get the switch working again. It will be hard to tell which switch is indeed stuck, unlless you really pay attention, and note which door you are working on when the light does go out.

Door ajar light remains on - 2002 ford explorer


Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.
