Newbie here - pretty sure this has been covered elsewhere, but I can't find it! My 2002 Explorer has a code 32. If the horn and cruise control are still working can I assume the clockspring mechanism is OK and that the problem lies elsewhere? If it is elsewhere what should I be looking at?
I don't think you should assume the clockspring is not the problem since there are multiple contacts in the clockspring assembly, so depending on which circuit is broken will change what features don't work.
Now this doesn't mean you should change the clockspring and assume all will be well without doing some further diagnostics....
There are are a few different possible definitions for an LFC of 49. You'll need to use a scan tool with SRS software to determine which specific issue your system has identified. All the definitions relate to the Seat Track Position Sensor Circuit.
The door ajar light is a pretty common issue, you can find all sorts of typically solutions with a quick search of the forum so I won't go in to details here. Most involve either a bad/dirty door pin switch in the latch mechanism, a broken wire to the rear liftgate glass, or a broken wire in the accordion boot between the cabin and the driver's door.
