The door hinges are likely worn. Slamming a door with worn hinges only beats up the door latch and striker post on the B-pillar until the body metal tears.

Get those hinges replaced.

I have the same problem, worn out hinges. Replace your cap and rotor, plugs, wires, oil and filter and you should be good to go

IT's a Ford if they are not on it won't run. No seriously Brake light and ABS will come on together. You can pull ABS codes from the computer and the system back then was really good even sets a code for blown fuse. Air bag light would need a scan tool mil can be pulled the old school way.
