3 Step Cleaning & Lube . This is a common problem and is caused by the door switch plunger sticking (due to dirt, other elements or rust). This can often be corrected by performing the following:. 1. Thoroughly spray the door switches (on each door) with:. Cleaning spray - clear the sludge ou…t of the mechanism - electronic contact cleaner, carb, brake, etc . Air, canned or even better, from a compressor . Spray lubricant - a dry lube (best), silicone spray, WD-40 or similar . 2. Open and close each door several times to work the lube into the mechanism. This is usually sufficient to clean the electrical & plunger mechanism inside the door switch.. If this doesn't work, you could remove the door panel and do the spray treatment from the inside also. . This approach works for most, but the switch may have to come out for repair (see Windstar "Related Question" below), or replacement.. Answer . I just bought a 1998 Ford Taurus SE and right away I noticed the Dome light wasn't even coming on. The 2 map lights did work. I asked the previous owner about it, but he had no idea. Today I bought a new bulb and noticed that the light stays on forever, and the door ajar icon stays lit. I read through some of the responses posted for the problem, so I tried the WD-40 idea and it fixed it in 30 seconds. What you need to do is spray light lubricant (WD-40) on the drivers door latch. This is right at the end of the door (where is swings away from the car). You'll see the latch looks like plastic. Give it a few sprays, then open and close the door several times. If it works, the light should go off in about 30 seconds, and the door ajar light will go out. What must be happening is that the door closes, but something is sticking, not allowing the switch in the door to close. Spraying on the lubricant loosens this up, and in my case fixed it right away. Hope this helps. Regards, Doug. GEM of a Thought . The door ajar switch on each door sends a signal to the GEM module that the door(s) is ajar and this module illuminates the door ajar light and the interior courtesy/map lights. I would suspect that it's more likely one or more of your door ajar switches inside the doors, located on the backside of the door latch assemblies are sticking. . Answer . Relay switch for the door ajar light is bad.it is located above the fuse box.have 96 ford Taurus same problem. Taurus everything -. http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/index.php?. Answer . A switch on the light itself is on, a bad door switch that is grounding all the time, if controled from dash light dimmer switch, is it turned on. Any possiblity dome light is in contact with roof and grounding out there? The light should have power to it all the time and the door switches provide the ground.. Answer . its build into the mechanism, you need to remove door panel and get a llight and look inside unplug it turn it a quarter turn left ir right depending on the door once out shoot a little WD40 on it the little ball is usuall stuck or buy one at dealer they are only like 20$. Answer . \nI have a 96 Taurus GL and the the door switch is integrated into the door latch itself.\n. \nIf you are having problems with your dome light staying on and the door open indicator being lit with all the doors closed, you may try spraying some WD-40 into the latch to free up the switch. I know this because this has happened to me.\n. \nIf you need to replace the switch, you can remove the interior door panel and replace it from the inside.\n. \nHope that helps.. \n. \nThe door switches are located inside the door right under the latch. They are a constant problem. Sometimes you can "ungum" them by soaking the latch mechanism in WD-40 or another brand of contact cleaner or rust penetrant.. Answer . I had to do this on my 1998 Taurus SE. The switch is in the drivers door latching mechanism inside the door. Disconnect the battery, disassemble the drivers door inside door panel and you can get to the back side of the latching assembly. If I remember correctly, you need a Torx driver to remove the latching assembly from the outside of the door with the door open. I got a used latch from my local boneyard by slashing through the outside of a damaged door. It helped me see all of the rods and connectors hooked to the latching assembly. I replaced the assembly in my car with the used one and my "door indicator" problem went away. About 1 hour of work when you have the part.. Steve. Answer . WD-40 works best without having to replace any parts. Completely soak the hinges and open & close the door a few times, and the light should go away. My SHO had this same problem.. Answer . \nIf your interior lights are staying on, and "door ajar" iss lit up on dash, just take some WD40 and spray it into the latch assy. on all the doors. The switch is located in there and this will free it up so it works. I've had to do it to my 97 Taurus several times.. First check to see if the light switch is not set to dome on, then check the door switches, they shut the light off when the door is closed. Answer . The problem seems to be fixed now! I thought I had an electrical problem but it turned out to be more mechanical. I did what the person did that had the Ford truck, with the same problem. I used WD-40 on all 4 door latches. I had immediate and positive results. If things change I'll let you know. ( Full Answer )

The amount of light reflected by a material is called itsreflectance index. Marble has a higher incidence of reflection,especially when it is polished.
Marble reflects light better that wood because it is white (milky)and has glimmering appearance. Whereas wood has a dull surface..
Try to clean it with some dish soap and water, scrubbing with a brush. For heavier duty cleaning, some grout cleaner could be used, but be very careful if the cleaner contains any acid--the calcium carbonate in the marble will react with the acid and slightly fizz, dulling a polished surface. Try on… an inconspicuous spot first. ( Full Answer )

It's a question. "Can you see [something; in this case, the flag] by the dawn's early light" means "can you see by the first light of dawn (or, by the first light of daybreak).". The first part of that question reads thus:. "O! say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed …at the twilight's last gleaming". Stated in other words, what that is asking is, "Hey, in the first light of day, can you still see what we were looking at so proudly last night when the sun set?" ( Full Answer )

Therefore, to lose one's marbles means "to lose your stuff," or, idomatically, to lose one's mind. ( Full Answer )

This phrase originated in early English theatre, before the development of good stage lighting.. All stage lighting was by reflected candle light, mounted at floor level, downstage of all performers. Even with highly polished reflectors, the light did not extend very far, and a number of reflectors… must be used to clearly illuminate an actor. Needless to say, many lights must be used for any given actor to be placed 'in a good light'. Therefore, an actor had to be very good to earn the right to be;. 'put in a good light'. so, any actor so placed had earned this high compliment, usually by earning an important role ( Full Answer )

The expression is Get the marbles out of your mouth, meaning Speak clearly, or Out with it!. The Greek orator Demosthenes is said to have overcome a speech impediment by speaking over the roar of the ocean with pebbles in his mouth.
The term derives from the boy's game of marbles which was hugely popular in the US during the last 1/3 of the 19th through the first 1/2 of the 20th centuries. Marbles were almost always wagered through playing a game of "keepsies" whereby each of the players placed an agreed upon number of their… marbles equal to those placed by the other players into a circle drawn in the dirt and by knocking other player's marbles outside of the ring by shooting at them using a "shooter" marble from outside the ring, the shooter kept the marbles he "scored" and continued shooting until he missed then it was the next players turn. When all marbles were gone from inside the circle, the game was over and the players kept whatever number of marbles they "scored". It wasn't necessary to keep score in a casual game such as this since whatever marbles each player had afterwards was the score. Since all marbles entered were at risk, it was possible for one or more players to lose all their marbles by the game's conclusion. Since marbles were the prize possessions of many little boys, it is safe to assume that one who had lost all of his might wander around the streets in a daze, perhaps the shock of having been wiped out casting a pall of funk or insanity over the loser, especially if viewed by passersby and out of context. Having lost all ones marbles may have caused the loser to express great anger - an early, alternate connotation of the saying which eventually gave way to the term meaning that one who lost his marbles has gone insane, which is logical as being angry or "mad" can easily morph to "madness" or insanity.

I recall hearing this expression for the first time when I was in high school in the 1970's, which is when I believe it originated. The original expression was "have a bird turd" which meant you would get so worked up you would (figuratively) excrete a small pellet. We said this for a few years, and… then we shortened it to "have a bird" which got around the admonitions from teachers and other authority figures regarding the use of "bathroom" language.
