Question about 1998 Ford Mustang

2 Answers

I have a 1998 ford mustang convertible and the dinger that starts when you put the key in the ignition wont stop dinging. Please Help!!!!!!!!! Yesterday my driver side window wouldnt roll up so my husband took the door panel off and then this morning this started. I tried to pull some fuses: the anti-theft 1, the power windows, the dinger 1. None of them stopped it but my window does roll up now.

My 2002 was dinging when the headlights were on. The latch is covered with plastic. It gets loose and makes the door not shut completely, Even if it seems so. I trimmed the loose plastic off. Now near that latch below that's below the door handle is a small unseen button called a door adjar button. That also becomes stuck. You can spray that up. In some cars the door adjar is on the other end of the door. So don't go looking for it there. Sometimes a bad key cylinder causes dinging. I have heard of people taking a piece of tape and putting it on the metal contacts on the cylinder. Some cut the wire for the chime too.

It's likely one of the door switches is damaged causing the door open signal. It can also be caused by the key in the ignition, so don't rule out a faulty key insertion switch.

Have your husband or a mechanic test these parts for accurate functionality.

1998 chevy cavalier starts and runs great but when you put it in gear the warning lights come on in the dash and it dings like the door is open, and it stays like that till you shut the car off.


Try this,it wont cost anything but time.Remove the ignition switch(not the key lock) But leave it plugged in. Place the key lock in the run position. Using a screw driver turn the ignition switch and start the car. Does it still ding? It Should... If yes, push in the little white stem on the key lock with your finger.(on the tip BETWEEN where it was connected to the wired ignition switch) Does it stop? If yes, either the little stem has worn down or a dent has worn into the plastic electrical ignition switch. You will have to decide which is not right. But that is the part that sets off the "Key Left In Car" ding.
