SOURCE: Interior lights, lights on rearview mirrow aren't shutting off.

Spray some WD40 into the latches on the side of the doors then open and close the doors several times firmly.This will unstick the door adjar switch most of the time.Start with drivers door first.

SOURCE: 1997 ford exibition xlt my interior light and running board lights wont go off along wiith the door ajar light on dash board. please help

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

Door ajar keeps coming on all doors are opened and reclosed will not reset what do I do to fix?


there is an electrical switch inside each door connected to the door latch. Most times just spraying some lubricating oil directly in to each door latch to loosen the switch and then open and close the door a couple times will work.

Door Ajar light wont go off.


replace the relay for the courtesy lights. the relay should be under the dash in the fuse panel on the drivers side. if you can't figure out which one. just put your finger on each one till you find the hottest one by touch.

1998 Lincoln Cont., Drivers Door ajar light will not go off


this sounds stupid, but i had the same problem with my mk8. and it fixed it. open the door and look at the door lockimg latch on the door frame. pull on the door handle numerous times as you spray some silicone lubricant in and around all the mechanism. This will free up the pin switch that is activated by a cam on the door latching mechanism. I fixed mine 6 months ago and have had no problems since.

Door ajar light in dash is on along with interior lights


the door switches for that year explorer are actually found inside the door panels, built into the door latch. they are a real pain to change out. the only way really to determine which door it is (it could also be the rear hatch) is to use a scan tool to view door ajar data, then change that one switch.
