I would take out the door switch, cut the wires and then twist them together, tape them. And the switch is now gone an not the causeible problem anymore.

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 remains on

Ford Explorer since 1995 has been using an in-door switch for the door jamb. Older versions used a plunger that you could easily test with with your fingers. The common problem is that the switch is not closed, this will cause your dome lite to be on, door ajar light on, and will malfunction any aftermarket auto alarm. Replace the switch, this is a known Ford problem.

if the door ajar light is on then get a can of PB BLASTER at your local parts store and spray all the door latch assembleys really good and open and close each door about ten to fifteen times this will usually free up the ajar switch

SOURCE: 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.

Your best bet would be to find a Tech like this guy , with the right diagnostic equiment . Door Locks Go Crazy 1 Unless you know how to do automotive electrical testing . Your door ajar switch is a input to a body control module . or GEM as ford calls thiers .
Door Locks Go Crazy 2 Your auto lights are controlled pretty much the same .
Electric Testing Techniques You Need to Know

Do you know what DTC"S are ? diagnostic trouble codes ! You probably have a door ajar switch problem . You need a factory or professional type scan tool to check these codes
B1322 Door Ajar Driver Circuit Short to Ground GEM/CTM REFER to Section 417-02 . B1323 Door Ajar Lamp Circuit Failure GEM/CTM REFER to Section 413-01 . B1325 Door Ajar Lamp Circuit Short to Battery GEM/CTM REFER to Section 413-01 . B1330 Door Ajar RF Circuit Short to Ground GEM/CTM REFER to Section 417-02 . B1334 Decklid Ajar Rear Door Circuit Short to Ground GEM/CTM REFER to Section 417-02 . B1338 RR Door Ajar Circuit Short to Ground GEM/CTM REFER to Section 417-02 . B1340 Chime Input Request Circuit Short to Ground GEM/CTM GO to Pinpoint Test C .
  • The Autolamps Are On Continuously
  • Circuitry.
  • Headlamp relay.
  • Light sensor amplifier.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test H .
  • The Autolamp Time Delay Is Inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Light sensor amplifier.
  • Headlamp switch.
  • Circuitry.
  • VERIFY parking lamp operation. If OK, REPLACE the light sensor amplifier. If any parking lamp concerns exist, Parking, Rear and License Lamps REFER to Parking, Rear or License Lamps.

Do you see how complex these systems can be for someone that doesn't deal with these problems on a daily base's ! Check for codes an if there are any , doing the diagnostic's associated with it . Without doing the diagnostic's you could replace parts all day long an not fix the problem .

Door Ajar sensor still on when all the doors are closed.How I can change the sensor?


if u know which sensor is causing the problem the you will need to remove the interior trim panel of the door and remove the door latch. In the latch you will find the door ajar sensor you just simply turn the sensor to remove it from the latch, make sure that the one that you replace have the same color that the new one

Door ajar keeps showing up while lights flicker. car alarm goes off.


You have a bad door latch sensor. This will flicker the dome light and trigger your alarm. It is either built into the latch or if you see a small button in the door jamb the switch is there just remove the nut and replace it.

Our 2002 Ford Explorer constantly beeps because the Door Ajar light is on and the vehicle thinks that a door is open. We've closed every door well and I've put WD40 in all the door latches including the...


The switch will be in the door jam on the body and probably has a black rubber boot covering it. The switch may just need replacing. Once removed you will see the two wires attached to it.

2002 Ford Explorer The door ajar alarm will go off while driving down the road and won't stop. Doesn't do it all the time and tempture doesn't seem to be a factor?


this problem is caused by the door ajar switches inside the door that are attached to the door latch sticking, there are 1 for each door and 2 in the tailgate, the only simple way to fix this is to have ford do a scan of the system an ID which of the switches is sticking, otherwise you must de-trim/remove door panel on every door and the tailgate until u ID the defective one, and it could be more than one.

the door ajar switches are located in the door latchs.door ajar switches stick alot,spray WD-40 into all door latches,then open and close doors several times,if switch is only sticking this will cure problem.
