      I have a 1993 Manual Ford Ranger. On warm days, I believe the seat belt warning bell plays constantly. If I run the air conditioner, once the cab cools, the bell goes off. If I enter and exit through the passenger door, the alarm never goes off. It seems it is something in or around the drivers door. Is there a fix for this?

      Thanks!

      Sounds like it is the sensor for the door. I think it controls the interior light and the door closed light (alarm). It may have an effect on other safety features too. I have heard of people using graphite lube to lubricate it. Your problem sounds like it may be related to needing an adjustment because of the thermal effect.

      My 88 did this for the buzz when the keys were left in when the door was open. My problem was something worn out in the steering column.

      Thanks for the info. Being a novice repairman, Can I fix it myself? If so, How do I find it? Repair or replace? It is driving me crazy! I have taken out the light bulbs in the cab overhead because they are on while the bell is ringing!

      yep

      To replace it remove the door panel and the lining on the door out of the way. Reach in towards the latch you feel a wire leading to the sensor give it a quarter turn counter clockwise and it will come out. Unplug the old sensor and plug in the new one.
