Question about 2003 Ford Explorer
2003 Ford Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed. When driving, door ajar light stays on even though all doors are fully closed. I have young childern and my wife gets very concerned thinking one of the doors is actually open. Remote able to lock doors but interior lights remain on, remote locks doors but cabin lights and mirror lights stay on.
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.

The door switches sometimes stick. Spray some WD-40 or similar lube on them.

You need to replace the door jamb switch inside the door that is affected. Probably in the door used most...Drivers.
