Misplaced Texan

Hello, I just bought a 1994 Ford Ranger XLT extended cab 4WD truck for $1200 and I am sure this site is a treasure trove of useful information and people. I have the 4.0 v6, 5 speed transmission and the truck does have 180k miles on it. I do have a few issues to sort out, starting with removal of the annoying warning chime. I wear my seat belt and the door is not ajar but everytime I drive at night with the lights on it sounds constantly. I have replaced the headlights recently because one of them was burned out thinking that would fix the problem but it didn't. I don't see any other bulbs burned out. Does anyone know where the warning chime is under the dash or how to kill it? I also have a problem with the 4wd drive not engaging, I know its either the selector switch or the ?servo on the transfer case but I have not had time enough when it wasn't freezing to check it out with my voltmeter. Its 22 degrees here in middle Tennessee today so I am playing on the computer and staying warm. If there are any forum mebers on here from the Cookeville area feel free to introduce yourself.

22, Sounds warm!!! Welcome to the forums, also have you checked the vacum lines running to your hubs? I have had a lot of problems with mine cracking.

Thanks

I hadn't thought about that. all I know is when you push the button on the dash nothing happens. when It warms up I will look at that also though. I have 6 inches of snow outside and 22 degrees. I couldn't make it up the driveway when I tried to go to the store. (I have a steep driveway).

Smack your T-case with a hammar, it sounds funny, but mine did something similar (went in 4X4 wouldn't get out) and i smacked it and next time i drove it it went out. try pushing the button on the inside door frame when your lights are on? if that shuts it off, tape the sucker closed or something.
