Won't start. Electrical fault under dash.

Last week, I parked my 99 Ranger for about 20 minutes. When I came back and turned the key, there was a loud pop under the dash/steering column. When the key is off now, there is either a buzzing or a ticking under there. If I wiggle the wiring harness, the noise will stop, but it will only start now about twice out of every 25 or 30 attempts. HELP?

    More messing about. Discovered that in key off position OR key removed, if the door is open the bell chimes - stops -chimes until I close the door. All fuses & relays check good.

    Unplugged door alarm switch, replaced ignition switch, made sure battery was fully charged. Nothing...zip...nada. Also, with key in the backwards accessory position, I get serious power noise in all of the speakers. Still, not so much as a click when I turn the key on.
