Left power door problems on my 2005 Freestar

My "left door ajar" light keeps coming on while I'm driving down the road.It will come on when I make right turns,hit bumps and accelerate. Obviously there is a problem with the latch. When I manually close it, it is fine.
Any suggestions?

2001 ford windstar door ajar light on even with all doors shut


In Windstar models the problem can be caused by the side sliding door contacts, but either of the two other switches in the right and left doors can also cause the light to blink on at times or just stay lighted. The issue is most noticed when the van is turned hard right or left when driving or on a rough road. A Ford dealer can run a test with a special scanner and ID exactly which switch is at fault.

2005 jeep wrangler when i turn lights on beeping starts


did you RTM read the operators guide yet,
it tells you why all beeps beep and what lamps flash, (warning) and why. did you?
you turn on, the head lights, (what about 1st click , parking lights"?)
and does the dash cluster, show warnings of any kind?

if a door is ajar the system will think, you are exiting veh. with lights on and tell you, buy beeping ,etc.
but on my jeep it says on the dash DOOR, or on EVICs, (not yours)
the newer car even tells what door IS AJAR.
mine on shows , "DOOR"
the operator guide will say, check all doors for ajar, and get warning clear before driving....etc.

if you lost the guide here it is for free

click the 05 link
ignore beeps, there are just too many .. i look at the cluster and learn to read it..
my newer jeep 08 can produce 1000s of errors,,,,, possible.
in fact the intent it to beep to tell the driver to look at the cluster
for in depth, causes.
see chapter starting on page 136'

once sound it makes is Check gauges chime. so check them.
and headlamps left on
and door ajar.

page 63
NOTE: If the driver's door is left open, and the headlights
or parking lights are left on, the "High Beam
Indicator Light" will flash and a chime will sound.
Lights-On Reminder
If the headlights or parking lights are on after the ignition
is turned off, a chime will sound when the driver's door

its a crude system, and evolved to complex in 2007.
"DOOR" or RF-door , on mine.

NOTE: A tone will chime if the turn signals are left on

2005 freestar driving down the road suddenly starts stumbling rpms drop and emission light comes on then dies. Scaned it but says nothing is wrong


The check engine light will always come on when the engine stalls.It could be your fuel filter needs replaced or your fuel pump is going out. The fuel pumps can heat up and stop working, then after they have a chance to cool off they will work just fine until they get hot again.

The light when you open the door on my 2005 ford freestar are taking a long time (about 30 to 40 min.) to cut off. what can i do or get to get them off quicker?


One of the doors has a door ajar switch that is bad, it needs to be put on a ford computer and you can look at the switches to see which switch is bad, after 40 minutes goes by the battery saver relay times out and the lights go off.

My door open sensor chimes whenever coming to a stop. I believe it is associated with the left slider.


it sounds like you need to adjust your doors to close tighter or you have a bad door ajar switch which may be part of the latch.

My passenger's door open indicator is on but the door is closed. Where is the indicator located? 2005 freestar. Thanks


Normal Operation When any door or the liftgate is opened, the ajar switch provides a ground signal to the smart junction box (SJB). When the door or liftgate is closed, the ajar switch opens, removing the ground signal. The SJB uses the multiple inputs from the ajar switches to determine whether the doors or the liftgate are in the open or closed position. The SJB then provides a message to the instrument cluster over the communication network. The message center uses this information to display the door/liftgate ajar message.

I suspect your door switch is not closing all the way.

there is a switch in each door that senses the door is open, it is called the door ajar/courtesy light switch (imagine that), they stick and have this problem, replace it.
