This alarm stays on, goes out when making a left turn and then come back on. The passenger front door light stays on, however, if I lean against it from the outside the light on the door will go out, but the signal on the dashboard stays on, what is this problem?
I had this same problem. I was able to fix it by tightening all of the screws in the door and where the door closes. There is a small rubber piece that fits over a button. When the button is pressed, the door alarm will stop. For me, it was just taking off the metal plate and re-adjusting the rubber piece and then tighten those screws so the plate was flush against the door frame. Good luck!

I had that problem as well. You are on the right track. You may also be having an issue with the dome light staying on after the car was shut off (fortunately they will only stay on for 10 minutes). The message center might also say that a door was ajar. For me it turned out to be the passenger front door switch in the latch mechanism. I saturated the mechanism with WD40 while it was still in the door (I was too lazy to remove it) and have not had any problems with it since (10 months and counting). As a note; the message center does not distinguish between the three passenger doors but it does between the passenger doors and the drivers door.
The switches that activates the door ajar are located on the body frame. For front doors try looking between the hinges, on the frame of the body cavity. Might have a rubber grommet around it. On the back doors, look on the frame of the body cavity near the hinges.
the problem is door ajar switch located on one of the door latches
just inside the door. what usually works is spraying wd40 or an electronic lubricant prayed liberally into the
door latch and then opening and closing the door several times. the stuck
switch is usually on the door that is the least used door like the passenger side rear.
let us know how you make out.
Hey Jared..my name is Keith..and what you have is a bad door sensor..and you will have to see and figure out which one is bad..i had a bad sensor..after awhile the door ajar light would go out..and then when someone opened the passenger door..then the door ajar light would come back on..so i replaced the door sensor on the passenger side and it fixed the problem..i hope this helps
you have to find wich door is first becouse they all have kill swich in every door so u have to disconect one by one n by pass to see wich one turn the light off then u will have to replace it auto parts store shuold have these at hand, lol becouse as long the light stay on the alarm will not work,
if the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch
