    I am having some electrical problems and am in need of some help. My radio stays on when key is off, wipers work when key is off, and some strange door chimes coming and going. Any help would be great

    There's an emblem on the truck somewhere, its like this blue oval with 4 letters on it. That's probably the problem :laugh:... My Fords are newer, this may not apply, but on mine if you pull the radio out, to the left of that hole there's a small black box that contains the chime. Sounds like an ignition deal though like it's not switching off of the accessory position. May be a relay... is there a relay for that?

    Im having the same problem on my 97 f150. Mine isnt the radio but the door chime will sound with the key out and then if you move the stearing wheel to the right spot it wont. I need to put a new switch in.
