    Tried pushing the Door Jamb Switch and it turned the overhead lights off but no luck on the warning light. Is there more than one switch that i am missing?

      Hmmm....its sounds as if you have a door ajar switch sticking, they are located in the doors on the latches, what you can do is spray some wd-40 into the latch and open and close the doors 15-20 times and repeat, this works 90% of the time, if it doesn't then you will need a scanner with the correct software to see witch switch is bad and replace the ajar switch. each door has one. to test the system will cost you around 80 dollars, but it all depends on the shops labor rate.

      But, id rather just cut the connections permanently, because...

      1. Whats the logic of the door ajar light? To know if its open? Or slightly open? To open the lights automatically when i enter at night?

      Source: I cut mine, it serves no purpose actually, i have my eyes, my fingers and my common sense anyway. The less electronics in my car the better. But for mechanics, the more electronics the better.

      Sorry for ranting but these devices make me feel like an idiot. Like that Tire Pressure Monitoring System.

      try switch(es) at each door or maybe switch is shorted or wire shorted. good luck finding a wire short.
      2/18/2012 BONDO
      Both switches would turn off the overhead lights but not affect the door ajar light. the only switch I could find was a push button type but I couldnt find the back of it or any wires to troubleshoot so I just removed the bulb from the panel..... thanks again

      Statement from my friend.

      "the AUX button on the radio is used for the DVD player that Ford installed as an option for the rear seat passengers. it does not work with mp3 players at all. I have to use an fm transmitter device to play my mp3 player in my Mountaineer. (tune to a unused radio station and play the mp3 player through that."

      Loose connections to the body control module or corroded wiring. The whole system sounds like it needs to be gone over.

      The usual suspect for the problem you are having is caused by the LCM (lighting control module) and in most cases the fix is to replace it. The BCM (Body control module) will store fault codes when the problem is occurring. To know for sure the LCM is at fault it would be a good Idea to have the codes pulled as this will verify if this is the problem before replacing the LCM.

    Does the Pyramid in-dash stereo you are selling fit my car?

      Im assuming you have the 1 DIN head unit as stock, if thats the case then it will fit. Most radios are built for OEM specs, i have yet to see a head unit that doesnt fit all applications.

      The only exception is if you have the 2 DIN headunit which is bigger like in a CRV.

    Why does my turn signal keep blowing fuses
    • Spoon Sports
      1/4/2012 Spoon Sports
      probaly a short some place in the wiring on your turn signal switch ie the ground is shorting out your positive making it pulling to much to blow a fuse or either a bare wire rubbing the body, or water in the turn signal housing.
