    I have the same problem with my F250. The door ajar indicator is on and the light will stay on during operation and even when the engine is not running.

    open each door and check the door switch by pushing it in and see if light goes out make sure sometimes there may be a delay in how long the light goes out so hold the switch infoa a perid of time

You have a problem in you door handle it is a very common problem with your truck. what you need is a can of brake or carb cleaner, access air, and some spray silicone.
1. start the truck and with all doors closed. if your light is on then go to step two. if not wait until it happens again.
2. open each door one at a time and spray the cleaner you have into the latch on the door where it meets to the cab,then blow it dry with air and spry the silicone on.
3. now close the door and see if the light on dash and dome light go out.
4. if not repeat steps for other doors till the light gos out.
5. if the lights go out before you do all four doors, do all anyway.
6. the problem is caused by water and dirt building up on the internal switch in the lock.
7. ford usually charges 50-75 dollars for the check and a new switch runs about 30.00 plus labor to install.
hope this helps you.

Auto door lock don't work, they click when activated. Also the door ajar light stays on and auto light does not work. F350 super duty 2002 ford


You might need to oil the locks. Our truck does that some times. We just spray some WD40 on the catches and keep clicking them back and forth till it sinks it. As for the ajar light, the sensor inside of the door jam might be damaged. or the switch on the lights is turned on. I did that once.

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.

Not a regular cab but Lariat F-150 Supercrew 2003 , the inside and the cargo lights stay on when the truck is shut down ,and now I notice the auto locking doors are not working when you touch the brake...


Is the door ajar light in the cluster illuminated ?

Could be the door ajar switch ( part of the door latch ) is gummed up, and needs to be WD-40 sprayed into it, and close open the doors a few times, and repeat.

The autolock uses the same input, to know to lock the doors when you press the brake pedal while moving.

1998 F-150 Door Ajar Light Problems


inside the doors is a Small twist in button switch on the door latch assembly that turns on the doom and key buzzer, they stick and make a poor connection, this causes your problem, i have replaced 100's of them, u will have to detrim the door to get at it. The switch is about $10 and u can get it from most parts stores, here is a picture. remember there is one on each door latch.

2003 Explorer door ajar light stay on when all doors are closed


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.
