You need to lube the black plastic rods that go from your door to the cab on the hinge side use silicone lube, and that should do the trick

Dome light stays on. Always says theres a door ajar.


The sensors are in the latch assembly. Try opening the doors and spraying the latches with WD-40 that will usually fix it.

1998 escort zx2 dome light stays on when switch is set for door; all other indicators, chime for key in ignition etc seem OK. Light works normally in switch on and off positions.


It should stay on for about 30 seconds and go off. Otherwise, the car is 11 years old, so find a switch position which does not drain the battery.

Door ajar and dome lghts


Probably a door switch, check them first. Go to each door with a can of penatrating oil, find the switch in the jam, give it a shot and work the button manually until they're all freed up. Watch the light while you do this to eliminate which one's causing the problem. Please post your results.

Interior dome light stays on while driving


Your dome light switch in in front of the driver's seat where the headlights are. It is possible that switch is bad as it should be both a turn knob switch, and by pulling on it, it becomes a head light switch. You may have to replace it.
