      My door ajar light stays on all the time and buzz's non stop. I have tried the WD-40 and it worked for awhile but no longer works. I am getting ready to go on a 500 mile trip and do not want to listen to it the whole way. Can anyone tell me where the buzzer is located at so that I can disconnect it.

      Thanks

      Welcome to the forum. :salute: Happy Holidays. :party:


      I had similar electrical issues with my 02 xlt. The dome lights would stay on until the battery saver feature turned them off, the driver side puddle light didn't work, the keypad on the door would set off the alarm when I pressed it, the door ajar light would flash and beep at highway speeds, etc.

      A lot of electrical issues can be traced back to broken/damaged wire(s) in the boot between the body and the driver's door. I found a broken wire and repaired it and all is back to normal!

      Could also be related to the door ajar switch.

      Here is a great thread for removing the door panel and checking/replacing the door ajar switch, thanks to borland for the awesome write-up: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=249253

      Here is a great thread for checking for broken/damaged wires, thanks to synyster for this awesome write-up: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums//showthread.php?t=270081

      Hope this helps out. :biggthump

      I know that my switch is bad. I have do not have the time to replace the switch before the trip. I would just like to disconnect the alarm/buzzer so that I do not have to listen to it the entire way

      Don't know location of the alarm/buzzer. Can you disconnect the bad switch?
