SOURCE: 95 ford windstar door ajar

These switches are inside the doors attached to the door latch assembles.If you know some one with a scan tool you can go into the body computer and see which one is showing open when all the doors are closed. The most likly one is the drivers side door or the two in the rear gate. I've replaced those the most.If you don't want to replace them you can unplug them and the lights will go off. Hope this helps. If you need more info let me know> Thanks Dan

SOURCE: Door Ajar light and dinger, interior lights stay on, looking for a fuse diagram.

It drove me nuts too. Fortunately, the solution is both cheap and simple. There is a latch mechanism in each side of the tailgate which gets all filled with dirt and slime.The latch jaws start to stick and dont move far enough to close the door ajar switch inside the tailgate Spray each latch generously with WD40, wipe the mechanisms off with a rag, close the tailgate, open the tailgate and repeat the cleaning several times. As soon as you get everything freed up, the switch will be able to report that the tailgate is closed and the problems will be gone. If you want, afterwards you can spray a little lithium grease on the latches to keep things running smooth. You may need to use a screwdriver to completely pry open the jaws in conjunction with opening the tailgate handle to get them to open fully while you are washing and wiping them off. Now's a real good time to lubricate all the door hinges and latches including the sliding door. May as well put some oil on the hood hinges and hood latch too.It's not impossible to keep Fords on the road....just tricky......very tricky.

Annoying alarm dinging until van reaches 17mph


This means one of the door ajar sensors is stuck. You need to remove the door trim panel and then the latch and then the sensor. Once out clean and lube it. There is a sensor inside every door.

Dome light stays on


One of the door frame ajar sensor became unhooked or stopped working. Check all sensors for sliding doors and front doors. Sensor itself is easy to pull out for inspection with a small screwdriver.. Just make sure that the connector doesnt get lost in the hole inside the door frame, because they are VERY difficult to fish out.

Have 99 windstar and the door ajar sensor will not go off.


Take some wd-40 and spray into the latch area of all of the doors. Then open and close doors several times. See if the light goes out. If not you may be looking at replacing a door ajar switch.
