When the wheel is turned while moving at low speeds there is an audible pinging noise. I was told it could be a CV joint. Also, the door ajar indicator light is constantly on. What can cause this?

Normally a cv joint will rumble. Have a pro listen to it as noises are hard to give a correct diagnosis. The door ajar may be to a broken wire or switch that will need to be checked.
