Only way to know whats going on is to have the engine light checked with a OBD II diagnostic tool, there's a data link connector under the drivers side dash that it plugs into, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will check the engine light with a tester at no cost, for example auto zone, or you could take it back to the mechanic to see if he can diagnose the problem. The service engine light come's on when the pcm (powertrain control module) senses a problem. good luck !

SOURCE: where is the door switch? mine acts like the door isnt closeing and the interior light wont go off

I could not find this switch either, It is actually located in the door latch on the door jam. Switch is somewhere inside. Took my truck to mazda dealer and had it replaced. Anoying problem.

There is a grounding problem with your door switches. You will have to have it traced to find the exact cause. In the meantime you can try pulling the door plunger switches on each door jam. Check for corrosion, clean and reinstall.

Door ajar light stays on in my 2007 mazda 3 what can i do its draining my battery every 2 to 3 days

Hello Jerry Nelson,

Door ajar light... typically means "a door is ajar"

Assuming the car is undamaged, no dents, bent doors or bullet holes: you have a wiring fault.

You should go around your vehicle and inspect each door, find the switch... With all the other doors closed ... operate & release the switches in sequence... until you run out of switches... and find NOTHING UNTOWARD.

See if you can remove the switches and disconnect the wire...
If you still have found nothing... restore EVERYTHING to it's original condition.

Most of these "switches" will operate for the full life-cycle of the vehicle. If you cannot figure out which door is causing your problem... TAKE YOUR CAR to a highly recommended
MECHANIC... and let then find the electric issue.

Popular USA market vehicle CIRCUIT Drawings (and TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETINS) can be found on the BBB Industries website (see below: registration required).

Hope this helps.

Car ajar light and alarm goes off on 2005 tribute

Pits one of the five door ajar switches. They are located in the door latch mechanism that holds the door closed. The best way to figure out which one it is is to scan the body control module. With all the doors closed. It will tell you which door is giving the open signal. This will need to be done with a high end scan tool that any good shop or the dealer will have. The most common one to fail is the driver front door.
