Default is this all rangers or just mine?

Do all rangers have a dinging when the driver door is open all the time?

Mine dings like the headlights are on or the keys in the ignition every time you open up the door. I noticed it when I bought it and I asked the salesman and he said he thought they all did it, but if i had problems to bring it back. I still don't really believe that they all do it so I figured I would ask.

Its a 2008.

If they don't, does anyone know how to fix mine?

If I remember right, there was a member here who had the same problem, and it ended up being something behind his gauges. He took it to the dealership and they figured it out, though.

A quick fix would be to tape the small "door closed button" thing down, which is located in your door jamb somewhere. It will look similar to this:

Or do like hazardous said and just take the fuse out, lol. Forgot about that.

OK, i have has this problem before. in the ignition cyl before the key hits the tumblers in the front there is a brass backed contact switch that says there is are is not a key in the ignition. this little switch is broken. it seriously looks like brass ribbon wire. and is like 1/8th inch wide. A locksmith showed me this once when i got my ignition replaced on my 95

you can usually find a replacement in a new lock kit or take it to a good locksmith and they may have the new piece.

i dont think its a ford stocked part.

i had it done twice, honestly they charged too much and i was in a pinch and needed the truck Anderson Lock and Safe in AZ did it for $125.00 that was to disassemble, set the tumblers on a new cyl, cut a new key, replace the switch, and install.
