1998 Ford Ranger Ext, Door ajar problem.


Asked by Feb 10, 2016 at 03:54 PM about the 1998 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab 4WD LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

For starters I tried the WD40 'trick', nothing happened. So i unplugged the two
front switches, nothing happened again. Is there a switch in the two back
doors or my truck? I have no idea, please help. It's killing my battery!

1 Answer


This happens to me when I make a sharp turn. Probably there is a mercury switch that is out of alignment. ??
