unhook the negative, leave it for a good 30 mins, reconnect it. doesnt seem like it hsould work, but sometimes it does, and its worth a shot, other than that, id say its the sensor, i think its actually in the latch in the ranger
my check engine light still hasnt come on with my cats being gone for a few months. the light works too. i think the guy slipped in some simulators for free or somethin. the guy thats done my exhaust twice is cool either way.
I am also having issues with my 01 4x4 ranger. The door ajar dash light and lamp kept going off when making left turns or when passenger put any weight against the door. I figured something was loose, but everything seems good, the door shuts/latches tight. I sprayed wd40 with no success. I wouldn't think the sensor is bad because it ONLY goes off when the is outward force on the door. Has anyone else had this problem?
