SOURCE: Door ajar lights (sliding door)

Clean the electrical contacts attached to the side of the sliding door and the matching set of contacts on the pillar using fine grit sand paper. Once shinny surface of contact metal are exposed, spray contact cleaner on these contacts and wipe excess fluid. Contact cleaner is available in spray can container at Radio Shack outlet. Let me know if this solve your problem.

SOURCE: sliding door on 98 windstar- says it is ajar when door is closed

must be a break in the wiring somewhere and will not be a quick task to check unfortunately, sorry but you will probably need auto electrician unless you feel up to checking it all your self if so check the contacts with an auto probe to see where youhave feeds and where you have earths then check others till you see a break in the pattern or better still if you have or can get wiring diagram then follow it through.

SOURCE: 97 Honda crv dome light will not turn off when

you have a bad door switch usually located in the door jam if you are sitting in the seat and your door is open look for something that looks like a small button about the size of a pencil eraser it is possible the plunger is broken off so all you may see is a metal object with a hole, replace this if plunger is broken

We have a 2010 Lexus GX460 and the door ajar light won't go off. The chime stays on and we had to manually turn off the dome light. Even with the engine off the light stays on the dashboard.


The sensor inside the door latch is probably stuck. Try spraying some WD40 or similar into the door latch mechanism. Open and close the door a few times. Give it some time to soak in. If that doesn't work, you will need to have the sensor checked by a pro.

How do i slove my door ajar problem


Try spraying wd40 into each door latch. Do it one at a time then open and close the door about a dozen times spray some more in there after about 6 open and closes. Do this with each door and even the hatch. This should clear ya right up.

2006 Saturn, dome light turns itself on when it's parked.


The car might be "thinking" that one of the doors is ajar,
Check the spring switches in all the door frames to make sure that they are hooked properly, and doing their job. One way to do it is ( if the dome happens to be off) to close and open each door several times, to see if the bad switch stays open and turns the light on, even with the door closed

Spray lubricant in the driver's and passenger door latches. One of the switches in the latch are sticking. Open and close the door several times to free up the switch.

2001 Sequoia, door ajar light goes off, but dome light stays on. Door ajar light comes on with slight pressure against closed door. Can replacing the door jam switch solve this problem? Why would the door...


To temporarily solve the light problem, I taped a washer to the inside of the door where the door hits the plunger on the light switch. A permanent solution would be to drill a hole in the door at this spot and put a self taping screw in that will trigger the switch sooner. I figured out the reason the dome light stayed on is due to the courtesy light timer and the lights would have eventually gone off.

Door ajar dash trouble and dome light stays on even if all doors


The door sensors will need to be replaced. A screws can be removed and then a wire can be taken of and you then can replace the switch.

Door ajar alarm


The doorlach pin is faulty.
On newer vehicles it is inside the door on the locking mechanism.
It is stuck in the closed position, or has become dislodged.
Refer to your mechanic for repair.
