Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.

SOURCE: 2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed

I had this problem on my 2003 explorer and took WD40 and gave the lock mechanism a good dose where it meets the clasp on the door jam. Then open and close the doors a couple of times to get them working. They get gummed up and sometimes have a tendency to stick.

Your door sensor is bad. Replace it and all will be better.

most likely you have a door switch problem, you must take to shop to have it scanned, and they can tell you what door it is. most times it is drivers door, because that is the door that gets the most use.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 ford

Hi, one of the switches has gone bad or it's wire has come loose. First try squirting a little WD-40 into the switches one at a time and then pushing the button in several times to see if the ajar light will go out. If it does, you have found the bad switch. If the problem comes back, then replace the switch. There is a goor write up with pictures here: http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=249253

Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

My door ajar light is on but all doors are closed and the overhead lights keep going on and off


You have a bad door ajar switch on one of the doors. It is shorting out and causing the lights to flicker and the door ajar light to stay on.

My door ajar light remains lite


The switches are FAMOUS for sticking. The easiest thing to do is spray (I mean HOSE) the latch in the door with penetrating oil and repeatedly close and open the door, like 20 times, this may get the switch working again. It will be hard to tell which switch is indeed stuck, unlless you really pay attention, and note which door you are working on when the light does go out.

Dome light stays on until you go over 25 mph


I have a 2002 Explorer as well. It mite be that the keyless entry box needs 2 be replaced. I had a similar problem with the door ajar thing and sum other lighting issues and that was the problem. Got it fixed and now I have no problems. The part costs like $25 but the labor, idk. A family member did it 4 me. Hope that helps. Good luck.
