problem #2

If I turn the dome lights at nite the radio stops working, and at some point the truck will just quit running, it takes a long time to jump start. My volt meter is always in the normal, is just a pain. I would like to know is there a recall on some electric switch, or the light switch????

problem #1

door ajar light is on, hear clicking from the dashboard behind the door ajar light, interior alarm beeps intermittently while driving down the road while the doors lock and unlock themselves. Alarm goes off for no reason at all at all hours of the day. I just spent $500 on this problem and they said the wiring was fine but that the connectors had corrosion. They cleaned that up and thought it would fix the problem. The door ajar light is no longer on, but the beeping continued although less often on the ride home from the repair shop (so any long term fix is still to be determined). The alarm is STILL going off for no reason at all. Does anyone have a fix for this?
