I put new brake pads and rotors on my 1998 windstar and it still squeels when i stop
incorrect pad material
brake manufacturers make 3 different pads for different applications and you need the pads used for taxi operations
there are anti noise pads fitted behind the pads ( plastic inserts and springs in use also to stop the noise
make sure that the callipers are free to slide on the mounting pins
other items like slotted and drilled rotors may be a help
talk with accredited specialist brake shops to make sure that during the replacement process you didn't miss a vital item that is now causing the noise

Sliding door switch?
Do you know anything about automotive electronics ?
All courtesy lamps are controlled by the generic electronic module (GEM).
The four contacts are not switches , the part you want to replace is the door ajar switch . The door ajar switch is inside the door part of the lock actuator . Those contacts just allow circuit continuity when the door is closed , when you open the door continuity is broken or open . The GEM now know the door is open an will now turn on the dome lights . The door ajar switches stick , try spraying WD-40 into the door latch ,open an closing the latch . If this doesn't fix the problem you will need to take the inside door trim panel off and replace the ajar switch .

How do I stop my transmission from jerking non stop?
usually the auto trans has a filter in the pan. if the filters clogged it cant get enough pressure to shift. i recommend a new filter and gasket. cork gaskets are way easier to install than rubber gaskets. coat the cork gasket with form-a- gasket, you dont have to use an extreme amount, just enough so the gasket sticks to the pan.

Measuring spoon wheel adjuster
you need to have it properly aligned, the tracking is different on every vehicle there is an amount of play in the adjustments but if it will not go into the recommend rang on the alignment then there is a problem, before taking to have this done make sure the tracking nuts and bars are easily moveable, undo them and move back and forth as if they find it hard to move they charge you more, if they can undo the nuts and move the bars around easy they cannot charge you for the extra charge. also make sure you have new tyres fitted as work or uneven ware can affect the camber to the road and wear the tyres down quicker and cause other problems later on.
