problem #2

Ranger 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
The passenger rear door (suicide door) latches at the top and bottom. The bottom latch will not latch. As a result, whenever you close the regular passenger door it does not allow for a secure latch. The inside light and the ip light (door ajar) remains on unless you go outside and push on the door. If you hit a bump in the road, the light condition will reappear. This door has probably not been used more than 25 times since I purchased the truck new. The vehicle is a 2002 Ford Ranger supercab.
