Door ajar won't go out - 1998 Ford Explorer

    Door ajar won't go out as well as interior lights. They go out while driving but as soon as you open the door to get out of the car, they come back on and won't go out.

There is a switch or sensor on the door frame either on the hinch side or on the latch side. Try to activate it with the the car on. With the door open, the door open light should light on, if it is a mechanical switch, push it in, if a sensor, touch it with a steel object, the light should turn off. This means the door switch is working ok. Now try the same again but this time push the switch slowly until the door ajar warning light turns on. This means that the switch works ok. Now, close the door from outside and check that there is no gap betwwen the body and the door line all over the perimeter of it. If there is a gap mainly at the latch side or at the hinch side, it can be your problem. If so, let me know so I can show you how to adjust the door to eliminate the gap.
If there is no gaps, your door switch is to low (too far in), let me know so I can show you how to adjust it.
