Everytime I drive my explorer the door ajar begins ringing arbitrarily. I don't know what is triggering it or how to stop it. I have checked every possible door window etc to no avail. Any help for me?

Also, what do you think about carMD? Is it reliable?

I have a 1997 ford taurus GL. It started running hot when i was done changing the head gaskets. I did a test to ckeck and see if there was a pressure leak from the cylinder heads in to the coolant channels, there was none. I flushed out the radiator and heating core and engine block. I have a new thermostat i put on but even with it installed or uninstalled my coolant still over flow in to exspansion tank. The coolant runs real good through the radiator and lines and my water pump dosnt leak and is operating properly. The car still runs hot thow and overflows with coolant. The radiator has been sprayed in its vents and my coolant fan come on at the rite time. I really need some help with this.
