Cool Flynt is in the house once again.

Call me Flynt. I am a 30 year old man and I have had my truck for about 13 years. Lately my spare time has increased so I am trying to fix up my truck. I have an 2001 Ford Ranger (of course) with a 3L V6 engine XLT. It has close to 145,000 miles on it, and is mostly stock. I have a spray-on bed liner and stereo/speaker alpine deck, infinity speakers with a JBL sub.

I plan to install new head-light housings, HID lights, a Magnaflow super 40, LED's in dash, dome, and license plates, cold air intake and possibly new seats. I need new rims but that is the last of the last.

I have done a lot of stuff on the vehicle with basis on sites like this so I applaud those who govern and support this site. I hope I can be of some use to the rest of the FRF members.

Some of the problems I am having is chime not sounding when lights are left on. In addition, when the door is open the dome light does not come on but when the passenger door is open it does come on. The radio as well seems to be shorting out or something. It comes on for a little bit but then stops working.

I don't know how to post threads and have not found solutions to my problems as of yet. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi welcome to FRF!
for your dome light issue try spraying the door latch on the front door and the latch on bottom of the back door with PB Blaster, may help could be worse Dome lights are notorious for getting stuck on
