The door switches for that year explorer are actually found inside the door panels, built into the door latch. they are a real pain to change out. the only way really to determine which door it is (it could also be the rear hatch) is to use a scan tool to view door ajar data, then change that one switch.

I need to know wheres the fuse box located for a 1999 ford expedition my interior lights will not go off...


If a fuse is blown for your interior lights they will not light at all. the fuse panel is on the driver side end of dash where the door touches the dash board, can only access with the door open and small 7'x6" cover is removed, it pulls off by hand

F 150 DOOR AJAR WILL NOT GO OFF AND INTERIOR LIGHT STAYS ON! HOW DO I FIX IT


If only the door ajar light and interior light is not working it is probably the door ajar switch located on the door latch inside the door. sometimes a little WD40 sprayed towards lower side of the latch will work, frees the piston in the switch. if not the switch must be replaced. If also the outside mirror control does not work, the door lock switch also does not work, it is a bad ground to those three systems, the Electric windows have a separate ground wire and still work. You must feed a new black wire from a good ground on the body thru the door accordion tube and connect it to the larger black wire on the plug that goes to the door lock switch. The door lock, the mirror control, the door ajar light, and the interior light problem will be gone.

1997 ford exibition xlt my interior light and running board lights wont go off along wiith the door ajar light on dash board. please help


Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

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.

Interior Light sometimes will not shut off in Ford Ranger Pick up


If I am not mistaken, the plunger is located in the door with the latch. Most of the time you can just pull the door panel off and adjust the switch. After opening and closing the door, they get knocked out of adjustment. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Take care and best wishes.

Door ajar and interior lights stay on constantly


The switch that tells the computer that the door is closed is broken or has a loose wire.This causes the computer to think the door is open thus the door ajar and interior light on.Switch should be located on door jam.
