The door ajar sensor that is causing the problem is located on the door latch mechanism inside the door. Yes they do have a sticking issue that is why you have this problem.

    No it is sealed and no way to lube, it would just make it worse.

Check under the drivers and passengers front seat for electrical cables. sometimes the connections can get disturbed by feet or items that have rolled under the seats (specially if you have kids)making a bad connection of the cables

Door open warning light stays on

They are push button switches and the easiest thing to do is unscrew it and see if the light goes out or if the wire on the back has come off.

Expedition door open light stays on most of the time.

spray wd-40 in the latch on the doors then slam them a few times to loosen the switch on the latch that turns the light on with the key in the ignition and doors close if the chime rings like the key was left in the ignition then start with the drivers door

My drivers side door on my Nissan Maxima 2004 SL will not close. I've tried everything to no avail!! Please advise. Tried lubricant on door latch but will not engage!! Very frustrating- night light on...

Ok, if you have not slammed the door too hard and you are having a latch problem you need to gather a few things. This works better with two people if you have help. Take a screwdriver and place it in the middle of the latch on the door (where you would expect the bar the latch attaches to on the car would be if the door was shut). Have you other person pull the door handle as if they were opening the door, this will release the door latch itself. As they are pulling the handle, pull the screwdriver towards the inside of the door releasing the latch. I know I have a hard time explaining this method without being able to show you, but this is what you need to do.
