Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Looking for a fuse diagram for a 1998 Ford Windstar GL. Problem is the door ajar light stays on and the interior lights and the dinger goes constant. Need to pull the fuse before it drives me crazy. As well my cigarette ligher does not work. It is not the element it is the actual socket so would like to try and change the fuse.
It drove me nuts too. Fortunately, the solution is both cheap and simple. There is a latch mechanism in each side of the tailgate which gets all filled with dirt and slime.The latch jaws start to stick and dont move far enough to close the door ajar switch inside the tailgate Spray each latch generously with WD40, wipe the mechanisms off with a rag, close the tailgate, open the tailgate and repeat the cleaning several times. As soon as you get everything freed up, the switch will be able to report that the tailgate is closed and the problems will be gone. If you want, afterwards you can spray a little lithium grease on the latches to keep things running smooth. You may need to use a screwdriver to completely pry open the jaws in conjunction with opening the tailgate handle to get them to open fully while you are washing and wiping them off. Now's a real good time to lubricate all the door hinges and latches including the sliding door. May as well put some oil on the hood hinges and hood latch too.It's not impossible to keep Fords on the road....just tricky......very tricky.
