I recently bought this used 95 ford 150 xl and have been cleaning and tuning it up. For a while both tail lights would light up when i used the turn signals but i found that problem. It was two wires under the back of the truck that were exposed(one orange and one g


reen) and touching each other. but i cant figure out why the rear cargo light will not turn off. and the inside dome light is out and the plastic around it is blacked as though it would not turn off either. I had to disconnect the cargo lights. Also (sorry) sometimes the buzzer buzzes for no reason. I've checked all the fuses and they are good. lastly, when i turn on the a/c the engine struggles to idle and stalls.
Do you
have the same problem?

First, do you have a seperate switch for the rear cargo light, or is it part of the headlight switch? As far as the interior light and the buzzer, that is switch related. Check around the door frame for a switch. If you can't find one, then it is part of the latch assembly. My guess is that is why the light did what it did and the buzzer sounds.

As far as the AC, it will put a load on the engine, but the engine should idle up to compensate. Check for vacuum leaks first. If all is good with that, then I would recommend having the throttle position sensor (TPS) checked.

Let me know what you find.
PS: The truck looks good for that many miles. However, the picture covered some of what you wrote. If it is important, let me know what it says.
Was this
