Hey any / all -
I have a 98 Windstar GL w/ 3.8 and a 99 Taurus SE w/ 3.0. They both exhibit
the same problem.
Whenever the weather is wet, they act like the driver's door is open even
when totally shut. The dome lights remain on, the open door idiot light in
the dash stays on, and in the van the repetitive 'bong, bong, bong' goes on
for several minutes before it times out. I determined it is the drivers
door in both cases by hitting the power locks with the doors shut and the
engine running. In both vehicles, the driver's door unlocks as a safety
feature to prevent folks from locking their keys in the ignition.
I have had the door panels off in both vehicles and didn't see anything
obvious. Unfortunately, I do not have a garage and both cars remain
Does anyone have any experience and perhaps a solution?
