Spray inside the center door latch with WD40 or silicone lubricant. You might have to remove or partially remove the plastic shield cover the opening. It's the part the door latches too, spray all around inside there and that should allow the switch to release. The switch either dries out or gets dirty and sticks, the spay will loosen and clean it.

Have a 04 super cab ranger tremor and when i turn the dome light and the door ajar light comes on how can i fix that


turn off the dome light.


the door opens, it turns on the dome light, so the wire that goes from the door switch gets powered up and makes your dome light come on. if your door is closed, and you turn on the dome light, the same wire gets power and is actually sending power to your light bulb on the dash.
just ignore it , or get a diode and put it on the correct wire, and it wont allow the electricity to flow back towards the light bulb when you put the dome light on.

How do I remove the door panel on a Ford F250 Supercab. I'm trying to find the switch for the ''doors adjar' light which won't go off and subsequently keeps my dome and outside bed light on and draws down...


the door adjar switch is the problem. the cargo light stays on until 35mph, as well as the overhead dome light. i just took the bulb out of the dome light and dont worry about the cargo light. it stays on for 30 min after the truck is turned off if the switch didnt trip properly. it shouldnt cause any problems as long as your batteries are good. i havent replaced the switch yet but it should be on the part of the door by the latch. get the replacement part and do a visual I.D. when you get the panel off. then replace it. the sensor is only 14$

Is the battery fully charged.
Sounds like you have a short in or near the fuse block. Best taken to a good mechanic to have it checked.

Interior dome light stays on while driving


Your dome light switch in in front of the driver's seat where the headlights are. It is possible that switch is bad as it should be both a turn knob switch, and by pulling on it, it becomes a head light switch. You may have to replace it.
