No Real Event Leads To This Failure. Problem Is The “door Ajar” Light On The Dash. It Detects Whether A Door Is Partially Open. The Switch In One Of The Doors Fails For No Reason. When It Senses This Falsely, The Dash Warning Light Comes On & Beeps A Tone & Quite Often The Interior Dome Lights Turn On. The Dealer Says To Lubricate The Door Latches & Work Them Several Times. I’ve Done That Many Times & It Does Not Help. When The Switch Fails & The Light Comes On, It May Be Brief But Other Times, I’ll Park The Truck & Walk Away & The Light Remains On For Quite A Long Time. I’m Sure I’ll Come Out To A Dead Battery One Day. Please Check This Out. I Have Seen Hundreds Of Other Reports Like This On The Internet – For Various ford Model Cars & Trucks. The Light Coming On Is Very Distracting And Could Be Dangerous. *tr

We Became The Owners A 2001fordexplorer Sport Trac Through A Family Member, And Found That The Signal Blinkers Do Not Work When The Steering Column Is Adjusted. The Family Member Never Knew She Could Adjust The Steering Column (she Is 74 Years Old). I Contacted ford And They Declined This Was A Safety Issue. The Blinkers Work Fine As Long As The Steering Column Remains In The Top Upright Unadjusted Position. I Researched This Problem On The Internet And Several Owners Have Complained With The Same Problem In Other ford Trucks As Well Such As The ford 150 Pickup Truck. Yet, ford Claims This Is Not A Safety Issue. Our ford Dealer Has Closed Locally. I Am Interested In Finding Out If This Problem Has Been Identified As A Safety Issue. *tr

On Sunday The Night Before The Incident The Vehicle Was Used That Day. In The Afternoon Around 3 Pm It Was Taken To Get Gassed Up For The Work Week. The Next Morning Was Chilly And It Was Started To Warm The Vehicle Up. However, The Vehicle Didn’t Start At All. The Dash Lights, Interior-exterior Lights All Have Power To Include Power Locks And Windows. The Battery Tested Good, The Starter And Solenoid Tested Good. The Wire To The Solenoid From The Battery Has Power. The Vehicle Had Not Shown Signs Of Faulty Starting. Two To 3 Times Before This Incident None Of The Lights Would Work But Then Miraculously Work Again. When The Lights Would Work I’m Mean The Headlights, Left And Right Turn Signal, Etc. It Seemed The One Way To Get Them To Work Again Would Be To Adjust The Steering Wheel But That Didn’t Always Work. Why Is This Vehicle Not Starting When The Day Before Is Was Working Just Fine And Had Not Given Any Signs Of Failure? *tr
