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.

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

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.
