1995FordExplorer: the alarm..door chime..unlocking..interior light

Customer Question

1995 Ford Explorer. looks like the alarm is going off but no sound. I hear the door chime, all the doors keeps unlocking on its own along with the interior light. Any suggestions? Also when i switch the headlights on, the problem stops. When i have the vehicle running with doors open, the problem stops but when i close the door, the problem begins and the "door ajar" light blinks.

sounds like problem is GEM module- General electronic module which commands all those functions. those modules are known for failure, but before replacing it, you must verify that all ground and power supply to module are present.

ig module is missing ground, or if it has weak groung it will do all this things, as electricity is will founds its ground though other components.
