"Door Ajar" signal on dash panel stays on even when doors are clo

I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 that when you get in the car and start the car and go to drive, the Door Ajar signal on the dash panel beeps that a door is ajar. All the doors are closed though and also it doesn't lock my locks automatically anymore when I drive like I use to now. When I hit the lock button in the car it locks all the locks but the drivers side. What could be the problem?

    Yes i have the same problem...it does it intermittently...be careful your inside lights may stay on and drain your battery when it happens

I have the same problem right now with my 2005 G6...my neighbor works as a GM machanic and he said that the door latch (inside the door panel) is completely broken and needs to be replaced. At first I thought that it might be an elctrical thing as it was intermittent and seemed to only happen when it rained and the car got wet. It is my front passanger side door.

I just had my car in the shop and they had to replace the latch as well.. this car has beena nightmare soo far... i am still having the vibration problem in front end, and my tires are bald already.. i just put brand new tires on less than 2 months ago... i heard that the G6 is been having alot of front end problems. I already had a wheel bearing replaced and ball joints and control arm on driver side... gotta love it!!

Update: Just got back from the dealer, official diagnosis: Broken door latch. Luckily where my g6 isn't quite a year old it's still covered under warranty but this issue appears to be a widespread problem, enough so to justify a recall. It just goes to show you why the big 3 automakers are begging for bailout money right now, shabby quality over the years combined with increased prices. Greed is a terrible thing, customers are getting fed up and it's comming back to haunt them....

    Well another update, the problem has gone away and it hasn't been fixed yet, also I read an article in the local paper of someone describing the same problem, the answer was a problem with either a loose wire or a glitch in the car's electronic control unit. After whats happened and reading that it appears to be the problem with my g6.

The air only comes out of the circle vents on dash, not the defroster vents or floor vents. I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 base model and I am not sure how to fix this issue


In side you dash is a electronically controlled actuator call a mode actuator , it controls which vents the air comes out of ! They go bad, plastic gears in side of it wear out, a lot of times you'll hear a clicking sound in the dash. They are not to tough to fix ,you need to take Instrument Panel Insulator Panel off - Left Side under dash . Some times stuff drops down in an binds up the door inside .Have a little child , they like putting stuff in the vents ,pencil's an the like.

This is caused by one of the many door sensor switches being defective. You can tear all the door apart and replace all the switches or have the dealer scan the body control module and quickly pinpoint the bad switch.,

Door ajar light comes on, chimes & it will not go off. My doors wills not lock anymore when shifted out of park and interior ligths stay on as well.


Hello: You have a switch in one of the door latch assemblies that is not working, Use of a up scale scan tool can identify which door. the only other way is to remove each door panel and trouble shoot each latch assembly.

Brake light and turn signal will not work on a 2005 pontiac g6- replaced the bulbs, are there fuses or something else?


Usually they are under the dash or on the side of the dash by the drivers door. There should be a diagram that shows which fuse works the tail lights. Use the puller provided, pull the fuse out and check to make sure that the interior wire is broken. If it is replace the fuse. If it is not have a mechanic look at it for a short

"Door Ajar" signal on dash panel stays on even when doors are clo


there should be a switch mounted( or more than one) in the door jamb that tells the car when the car door is open...i will probably look like a little plastic plunger...might be broken off or bad internally
