I have a new 2000 F-150 Lariat. While I have not had this problem or any with
my new truck, I did have numerous electrical problems with two Windstars that
I owned previously. These included: the dome light staying on, the door
sensors malfunctioning, and the power doorlocks repeatedly cycling in damp
weather. Your problem is most likely something wrong with the sensor. You
could look at the door jamb and door edge though to see if the connections
are clean. If not, give them a rubbing with an eraser to clean off any dirt
or grime. Maybe that will save you a trip to the dealer.

John, I have a 97 F250 (OO F-250 CC PSD on order..:) and have a
"Deflecta-shield" (sp) inserts that go into to grille area for cold air
blockage. These are great because if its a little warm you can remove one or
two of the inserts. Don't buy one that covers the whole grill with a piece of
canvas. They look like "H" and hard to partially un-cover the grill. They
also make them for summertime too, just have small holes in them, keeps the
bugs and rocks off you raditor. My friend has the summer time inserts, he
leaves them in all year. About $45-50. Dave Burry..Denver

If it is the same system as my Windstar, the door ajar switch is part of
the door latch & is terribly unreliable. The fix is easy, just flood
the latch through the latch hole with silicone spray, then open & close
door a bunch of times. Seems to work for a year or more, just choose a
spray that doesn't smell too bad.

There are 4 wires through the firewall for your use to add after market
items. See your manual, but they are for adding radios, lights etc.
If you bought from a dealer, ask them to fix the damaged brake
controller wiring.

Subject: FTE 97up - Radiator Level

I have a 99 F-250 SD PSD and find it unbelievable that there is no
radiator cap on the radiator! The only access is through the overflow
container. When adding FW16, it says do not add to overflow container,
add directly to the radiator. Also, because the overflow tube is higher
than the radiator, how do you know what the level is in the radiator ? I
guess you need to drain some out from the bottom to check and maybe
disconnect the overflow tube to add ??? Anybody figure this out ?

Radiator level.... I just use a "turkey baster" like you would find in the
kitchen. Just siphon off a few ounces and pour in the FW-16. There is a pet
cock at the bottom of the radiator, you could open that too, but you could
take a bath.

Definitely watch out near that petcock -- Animals love the taste of
antifreeze, and will kill themselves by drinking it, so if it spills on
the driveway, hose it down very, very well if you can't soak it up with
something.
